Hey, y’all!

As we close out the month of February in Louisville, I am excited to once again attend one of my favorite events of the year: the Bourbon Classic, co-produced by FSA Management Group and The Bourbon Review. In its eighth year, the Bourbon Classic brings together the culinary and bourbon worlds through a weekend of interactive, fabulous activities.

The 21C Museum Hotel in Downtown Louisville is the host hotel of the 2020 Bourbon Classic. If you haven’t been, you’re missing out. It’s the perfect venue because it embodies what the food and beverage culture is in Kentucky: interesting, ever-evolving, and first-rate.
