Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival benefits Multiple Sclerosis Society.
If you were wondering why all of the local watering holes were empty on Friday, you needn't look further than the West Club Lounge of Heinz Field, where more than 1,200 glasses were clinking to toast the return of the Pittsburgh Whiskey & Fine Spirits Festival, which this year benefitted the Multiple Sclerosis Society.
GM Dale Markham, Anne Mageras, Ken McCrory and his brother, Bob McCrory, were among those making the rounds, where fruity vodkas (bubble gum, mango, cherry, oh my!) ensured that some of the boys were instantly transformed into proper gents.
"We need the whiskeys and bourbons ... . it's pinkies up!" laughed Jonathan Sanfilippo as he oh-so-gracefully sipped an electric blue concoction.
A cult favorite, we heard that the line for the Festival was out the door and stretched halfway around the stadium before the games officially began.
"I'm gonna say I'll be the last man standing!" laughed Brook Underwood.
