Maker’s Mark “Red Headed Pub Crawl” part of this FAT Friday
If you love bourbon or are just looking for something fun to do this Friday night, look no further, the Frankfort Avenue Trolley Hop is going to be a blast. Not only is the trolley hop always filled with good deals, amazing art, and endless entertainment, but this month’s hop has a special twist. This FAT Friday is adding a “Red Headed Pub Crawl” to the night, a Makers Mark themed crawl complete with free red wigs. In addition to the normal stops on the FAT Friday roster, this Friday will feature special Makers Mark drink specials at bars and restaurants along Frankfort Avenue, but there is a catch. The only participants eligible for the specials must be wearing the red wigs that will be available at the 12 participating businesses along the hop.
In addition to the excellent businesses that are normally part of the trolley hop and the restaurants and bars participating in the Makers Mark drink specials, there will be some unique opportunities for you bourbon enthusiasts to take part in.
The Comfy Cow will host retired President of Makers Mark, Bill Samuels Jr., for a ceremonial dipping of a waffle cone in red chocolate. The event is scheduled to start at 6pm at the Comfy Cow which is located at 2221 Frankfort Ave.
You can follow Samuels after the dipping, to the Wine Rack, where he will be signing bottles of Makers Mark and Makers 46. The Wine Rack will also be hosting tastings of both Makers Mark and Makers 46 along with different cheeses. The bourbon tastings are scheduled for 6pm- 8pm and Bill Samuels Jr. is scheduled to be signing bottles from 6:30pm-8pm. The Wine Rack is located at 2632 Frankfort Ave.
