Tender Bar + Kitchen
Tender Bar + Kitchen, 4300 Butler St., Lawrence-ville, will hold its first official Repeal Day Dinner to celebrate the passing of the 21st Amendment, which ended Prohibition, at 6:30 p.m. Dec. 5.
In honor of this historical milestone, Tender will showcase spirits from Laird & Company, America's oldest commercial distillery. Lisa Laird, the company's owner and “world ambassador,” will be in attendance to share her knowledge, stories and tasting notes with guests.
The event will commence with a welcome cocktail and reception in Tender's Green room. Afterward, guests will be led to the Gold room to be served a four-course dinner featuring American comfort cuisine by Chef Steve Hebrank, in addition to spirit and cocktail pairings.
Established in 1780, Laird & Company is known for its natural, apple-based products. The distillery has been passed on through nine generations, and it survived Prohibition by producing “sweet cyder” and apple brandy for “medicinal purposes.” Today, Laird, which operates out of single distillery in Virginia, fills Tender's shelves with products such as their signature “bottled-in-bond” apple brandy, as well as the Lazzaroni line of liqueurs.
Tickets are $65. Advanced booking is required.
