Update (Oct. 10, 5:24 p.m.):
Well, I guess I shouldn't have gotten so excited at the prospect of seeing a huge-ass rocket in the neighborhood. Just got word from the folks at Soul that the Ardbeg folks have postponed their appearance to November.
I know. Sad face.
Oh, so many ways to use the phrase "out of this world" come to mind as I start to write this post ...
The folks with Ardbeg
- a single malt Scotch whisky, for those of you who just toss glasses back without a second glance at the label - will be at Soul Gastrolounge
Thursday evening for a Scotch tasting. Soul - who won Best Spot for Bar Bites and a Creative Cocktail List
in our Best of Charlotte issue - has just released its fall cocktail menu, and its selections look tasty.
But in more distracting, related news: Ardbeg's going to have a full-size rocket - like, large enough to need a Mack truck to pull it - there in Plaza Midwood to commemorate
its participation in a distillery experiment in space. Last year, Ardbeg sent up vials
of molecules to the International Space Station to see how the malt matures without gravity.
Head out there around 6:30 p.m. Soul Gastrolounge is located at 1500 Central Ave.
