Be sure to pick up today’s Leo Weekly!  The entire issue is focused on bourbon! Yep, bourbon is hot, hot, hot!  Our Bourbon series event partner Josh Durr, from Hawthorn Beverage Group, and one of our very own members Heather Mickley, are featured in an article titled: “A burning thirst for Knowledge - Why bourbon 101 keeps selling out”.  Speaking of Bourbon 101, tickets are now on sale for the next bourbon class at the end of this month.  So purchase your ticket(s) before it sells out again!  And mark your calendars for Bourbon 102 on April 25th and Bourbon 103 on May 24th!
