Scotch Dinner

Some Scotch With Your Scotch? Wine pairings have been around for quite some time. And it's certainly no secret that we like our craft beers around here. But we are always looking for new and exciting ways to get alcohol into our bodies, and so spirit pairings were destined to become a thing. And now they are. The Pub Pembroke Pines is hosting a Scotch pairing dinner on Thursday with special guest Dr. Bill Lumsden, director of Distilling, Whisky Creation, & Whisky Stocks at Glenmorangie in Scotland. The first 30 Scotch enthusiasts to call and make a reservations will get a coveted seat at the four-course dinner. Each course will be paired with a different Glenmorangie Scotch, including the 10-year-old, the 18-year-old, and the Quinta Ruban, which has notes of dark mint chocolate, tangerines, and sandalwood. The dinner is from 7 to 9 p.m. Thursday at the Pub Pembroke Pines, 237 SW 145th Terrace in Pembroke Pines. Call 954-430-4230, or visit The cost is $30 per person plus tax and gratuity.

She began her journalism career at the Sun Sentinel's community newspaper offshoot, Forum Publishing Group, where she worked as the editorial assistant and wrote monthly features as well as the weekly library and literature column, "Shelf Life." After a brief stint bumming around London's East End (for no conceivable reason, according to her poor mother), she returned to real life and South Florida to start at New Times as the editorial assistant in 2009. A native Floridian, Rebecca avoids the sun and beach at all costs and can most often be found in a well-air-conditioned space with the glow of a laptop on her face.
