Atlanta is not like New York in so many ways that it seems silly to even make the statement. One of the differences that is most pertinent to this blog is the relatively few whiskey related events held in Atlanta. And the few that their are, don’t get much press. So in an effort to help out my fellow Atlantans I’ll try to post a notice on all the events that come across my radar. Please feel free to send me an email or post a comment if you come across any that I miss.
