Art Basel brings so much cool stuff to Miami each year, but also
throngs of people and a whole lot of hype. Tonight, however, far from
the madding crowd, Two Chefs
in South Miami will be offering a single malt sampling that is
eminently reasonable in price: Twenty dollars will allow you to "Taste
5, Explore 10!", including a few rarities. Owner Jan Jorgensen allows
that often "We say 'ten', but one person will ask to try this, another
person that, and we can end up with 35 bottles on the bar." Two Chefs,
incidentally, has the best single malt collection in the Southeast.
sipping takes place from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., and there will be
free hors d'ouerves. If you can't make it tonight, next Thursday will
bring a different spirit sampling, as will every Thursday afterwards,
presumably for quite some time -- Two Chefs has about a thousand different bottles on hand to try.
Remember to bring along a designated driver, though. Enough single malts can make you see double.
