Bourbon and Bards

For most men, "Attend Poetry Reading" falls right behind "Eat Candles While Wearing Unitard" on their cultural to-do list -- but add six bourbons and Chanterelle's tasty chow (e.g., bacon-wrapped oysters, truffled grilled cheeses), and listening to "words" becomes more inviting. Booze includes Maker's Mark, Bulleit, Hirsh, Pappy Van Winkle, Blanton's, and Knob Creek. Poets include... some guys.
