Summer Speakeasy

Our Speakeasy events have always been a big hit with our Members…these evenings are just so much fun! Just add Summertime and the fun is kicked up a notch. A delicious, BBQ-themed menu, hot new whiskeys to sample, and this time, we had the pleasure of two different cigar experiences.

Cigar roller

First – Master Cuban Cigar Roller – and good friend of The City Club – Antonio Cortado was here rolling six different types of cigars for our guests. They were able to watch Antonio create them – he would question their cigar preferences, and then produce a hand-rolled cigar that was best suited to them – very cool!

And second – we had Ian Reith in the house, the founder of Cubo Cigars. He brought two packs of cigars for our party-goers to try, and spoke to us about the experiences (amazing!) of starting his own cigar brand.

whiskeys

There were fantastic whiskeys to try from Stitzel Weller Distillery in Kentucky – Blade & Bow, I.W. Harper & Forged Oak Orphan Barrel 15 Year. They blew us away!

Guests enjoyed this scrumptious menu:

Whiskey Grilled Kentucky Baby Back Ribs

Southern Fried Chicken

BBQ Beans

Coleslaw

Watermelon, Feta, and Red Onion Salad
