Whiskey In The Wilderness 2020

Continuing our love for the people that live and work locally that make our industry so special, we are taking Whiskey in the Wilderness virtual. Instead of joining us on a pasture near Red Rock guest can purchase tickets for any one of the featured dishes and drinks that are inspired by our past event.

When guests buy dishes their name will automatically be entered for a chance to win tickets for the next Whiskey in the Wilderness in 2021. Also, as a way to raise money for local charities, we will be raffling a painting by local artist Jerry Misko. Each year Jerry provides a painting that represents the fires of our event. Buy as many raffle tickets as you wish to help your chances to win the painting and help the community.

Finally, local bartender and friend Sarah Gage will be hosting a live fireside chat over Instagram with our participating food and beverage professionals, throughout the next few weeks. Watch our social media for times. Whiskey in the Wilderness will return!!
