Going Beyond Bourbon with Fred Minnick

Bourbon historian and journalist Fred Minnick stops by the studio to talk about his role in September’s Bourbon and Beyond Festival, which features a lineup of master distillers, chefs and musicians that makes the second festival one of the best in the country. Minnick is the author of seven books, mostly about drinking, and is the curator of all things bourbon at the upcoming fest.

Carolyn and Rick were inspired by last week’s appearance on the show by Anoosh Shariat to make our Eat of the Week choices at his two establishments. Carolyn and friends spent a night at Anoosh Bistro, and she raved about the Shrimp Scampi. Across the parking lot, Rick broke free, sort of, from his diet to try a veggie pizza at Noosh Nosh.

We noticed the LEO Weekly story on restaurant noise, and agreed that some of our local hotspots are just too darn loud. Out in the East End, we learned that a favorite haunt, Brownie’s the Shed, is shutting down. Carolyn talked with the owner, who said Brownie’s will continue in the East End, but wouldn’t reveal the location.

Our sponsor, Fourth Street Live!, is revving up for a big concert this weekend, and for the June 30 Family Fun Day, when you’re encouraged to bring your pet to the entertainment venue. Thanks for listening, and check our site out anytime at www.EatDrinkTalk.net.
