Thursday Tours: Date Night Dinner Out

I’m really excited to bring you a new edition of the Thursday Tours blogger series I am doing with Meredith of Martha Chartreuse.

Feast reached out to me to share a sneak peak at one of their upcoming events! This year, Feast is kicking off a new tasting panel, Drink Tank Presented by Imbibe, where local and national beverage industry experts will guide an intimate group of attendees through a tasting of premium beverages.
