It doesn’t get better than this!
In November 2012, Kim Ohanneson & Karolyn Kiisel of Literary Libations, and Johnnie “theScot” Mundell, “ambassador” for Morrison-Bowmore Scotch, inaugurated the Whisky & Poetry Salon at the B Black Penthouse in DTLA (downtown Los Angeles). Our goal has been to trade guests “whisky for their words”, to create an intimate literary and poetic community, to share the work of significant but under-exposed poets from the Los Angeles community and beyond, and, of course, to drink some really top-drawer scotch! Every two months, Salon attendees bring a poem, original or not, and read it in a candlelit loft surrounded by 30-40 whisky and poetry aficionados. In return, they get a flight of fine whiskies with tasting notes and history.
If you live in Los Angeles (or want to go there) and wish to attend, you can find the information here.
