Downtown’s Batch Cafe & Bar is hosting its first-ever whiskey-themed dinner from 6 – 8 p.m. on Monday, October 22.
Batch Cafe & Bar — a spot that normally focuses on small dishes, whiskey, and doughnuts — is leaving the five-course dinner to chef Jamie Sly as he crafts each course with some of their best whiskey.
The dinner will feature local ingredients from Avra Valley Growers, Cafe Francois Bakery, Southwest Bee Supply, Willcox Country Bacon Company, and San Rafael Valley Ranch.
Seats are $55 per person. Tickets are available at eventbrite.com.
Seating is limited, so get your ticket soon.
