Whisky Dinner will celebrate Welsh culture in Pittsburgh

Tom Davidson

Prince Charles will not be there.

But all things Welsh will be celebrated during a Whisky Dinner on May 17 at the University Club that’s being hosted by the St. David’s Society of Pittsburgh.

The society celebrates and promotes awareness of Welsh cultural heritage in southwestern Pennsylvania and this is its first whisky dinner.

Welsh whisky from Penderyn Distillery, located in the southern valleys of Wales, will be served, including the Madiera-finish, Sherrywood-finish, and Dragon series: Legend, Myth, and Celt, will be paired with a traditional Welsh supper.

The menu includes potato leek soup, Welsh rarebit (word to the wise — it’s more like cheesy toast and has nothing to do with rabbit) and herb roasted lamb.

Although the Prince of Wales won’t be attending, the Penderyn brand ambassador will be on hand to meet and greet with those who come to the dinner.

The reception starts at 7 p.m. at the University Club, 123 University Place, in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood. Tickets, which include the supper and whisky tasting are $110. RSVPs are due by May 13.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
