You read that right: Build-A-Gin. This weekend. Select your own botanicals, put them into the gin basket, and watch as the still runs out with your own (legal!) vapor-infused gin. While the still is running out, tour Three Wells Distillery and learn about creating craft spirits and the process of distillation. Co-founder and chemist Chris Dudding will discuss the science of distilling, proper measurements, the proofing process, and more. This is a great hands-on workshop!

Your ticket, which can be purchased here, includes spirit sampling and a cocktail; additional cocktails will be available for purchase.

When: Saturday, November 18th at 4:30 p.m.

The pig is BIG this year.

Join Bacon Fest for it’s 5th anniversary this weekend. You’re going to need sweat pants for this one. Your ticket is all inclusive–that means unlimited bacon dishes and craft beer samples. Seriously, what better way is there to pregame for Thanksgiving? New vendors are added on an almost daily basis. Live music and entertainment will be provided by Love Boat with Brooke Sample, and this event will be indoors, meaning you can ignore Mother Nature’s disregard for sweaters!

You can purchase your tickets online here OR you can avoid ticket fees by supporting local businesses and purchasing them at Elliott’s on Congress, or at either Brushfire BBQ location. You can also call the TCC at (520) 791-4101 to reserve your tickets.

Follow the Facebook event page here to see the vendors that are added daily.

See you there!
