Whiskey and barbecue are a pairing that needs no introduction, so when a barbecue joint joins forces with a distillery on a barrel of the good stuff, hooch hounds should pay attention. On Saturday, June 8th, The Smoke Shop Assembly Row is rolling out their collaboration with Gordon’s Fine Wines and Sagamore Spirits, Gordon’s Smoke Shop BBQ Collaboration Barrel #50 Private Rye, and you can be among the first to taste it. They’re pairing it with a Maryland crab feast with plenty of cornbread, corn on the cob, and cole slaw, and plenty of passed apps. Tickets are $37.50 and include a welcome cocktail, rye tasting, and a piled-high plate. Check out the details and snag a seat at the table here.
