to leave the house for our first event of the year. Join us for a country
drive, lunch at the sprawling Rough Creek Lodge in Glen Rose, and
whiskey-tasting at the Sledge Distillery in Tolar. Rough Creek Lodge and
Resort is known nationwide for its great restaurant, hunting and fishing, great
family vacations, and as a venue for world-class corporate conferences and
retreats on its 11,000 acres in the middle of nowhere. At the restaurant,
we will order from the menu and pay via separate checks. After lunch, we
will make our way to the Sledge Distillery in Tolar for a whiskey-tasting.
This tiny distillery creates whiskey and moonshine from the original recipe
found in the war chest of the owner's father, who served in the military and
made moonshine during World War II. The event fee below will cover a
tasting of 5 whiskeys and a little tour of the distillery.
NOTE: We may experience some wait time for lunch as we anticipate a large group, and the whiskey-tasting and distillery tour will need to be conducted in two groups.
When: Saturday, January 11, 10:30am.
Meeting Place: At 10:30am (come earlier if you wish to have breakfast), we will meet for a briefing at Starbucks, 4849 Bryant Irvin Road, Fort Worth, TX (817) 263-7070. We will depart immediately after the briefing.
