Taking tours can be a very enjoyable way to take in historical homes, curiosity shops, and other delightful attractions. Assuming you don't give a damn about any of that, step up to something manlier: The Canadian Club Whisky Tour.
Held this Saturday the 17th, the Tour covers five bars, each selected because they provide a classic environment for the mellow consumption of this classic whisky. The locations will offer sweet specials on cocktails, with two bars also throwing in blessedly discounted shots. The Tour begins on Lincoln Ave at 4pm, and winds up on N Milwaukee at 10pm, plenty of time to enjoy the crisp weather and smooth whisky while still getting home in time for hilarious Saturday night sketch comedy, or, more entertainingly, a basic cable movie about a woman who falls in love with a seemingly perfect man with a mysterious past and terrible taste in knit collared shirts.
You can join the Whisky Tour at any point you like. To get the route, bars, and specials, open up this popup map -- guaranteed to keep you from accidentally wandering into a historical home and being looked upon with great curiosity.
