Workin’ for the Weekend- eventseekr’s Top Picks for 10/7/11-10/9/11

Previously known as “The Hump Day Pick Me Up” (it was getting hard to say and type), our weekly Wednesday column shall henceforth be known as “Working for the Weekend.” Rolls off the tongue, no?

Brought to you by The Whisky Advocate, the $135 ticket gets you a gift bag of commemorative items, in addition to the opportunity to sample 250 whiskies, dine from a gourmet buffet, and attend whiskey seminars.
