Spirit lovers gathered at Dock5 on Thursday, November 14 to warm up with some of their favorite fine spirits at Washingtonian’s 8th annual Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival. Guests enjoyed unlimited tastes of premium spirits like whiskey, scotch, bourbon, vodka, gin, tequila and rum from over 40 distilleries and distributors, along with a delicious spread from B-lin Catering.
The stakes were low, but the fun was high on the casino floor as guest played an assortment of games made available by Metro Casino. A custom balloon wall by District Balloons and a photo-video booth from Array Pros allowed guest to capture their favorite moments of the night. Guests also had the opportunity to personalize their souvenir whiskey tumbler through glass etching by Meant To Be Calligraphy.
In between all the whiskey business, guests could kick back and relax in lounges provided by Electric Events while listening to top hits played by the 7Deadlies. Pike Production mixed music in between sets to keep guests moving long into the night.
