Wednesday, November 16, 2016

We are excited to announce we will be hosting a Spirits Dinner in conjunction with North Shore Distillery at the Boathouse on Wednesday, November 16, from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Daniel Helle, Executive Chef at the Boathouse, will be preparing 4 courses, to be paired with 4 specialty cocktails from North Shore Distillery. North Shore Distillery is Illinois’ first craft distillery and prides itself on its world-class artisan spirits. They start with the best ingredients – Midwestern grain, fresh citrus fruits, wild-harvested herbs, and more, and turn them into delicious spirits. We are looking forward to having Sonja Kassebaum from North Shore Distillery as our guest speaker. Keep an eye out for an announcement of the cocktail pairings! The price per person is $60 plus tax and gratuity. Advance reservations required. Email customerservice@boathouseforestpark.com, or call 314-961-7588, ext 265 to make your reservations!
