Do you favor single malts and balk at blended whiskey? Should I have spelled that "whisky"? If you answered yes, the First Annual WeHa Whiskey Festival may be for you. The festival boasts 30 tables and 150 whiskies, bourbons, and scotches. A raffle and live auction will take place, and chefs from five local restaurants will battle each other in a cook-off where the only mandatory ingredient is Jameson. Festival participants will also take home a handsome embossed glass. 100% of the proceeds will benefit The Town That Cares, a West Hartford fund that provides families in financial crisis with everything from food baskets to school supplies.
