Cheese Appreciation Events

Cheese Tasting with Tom’s Town Distilling Co.

 

DATE & TIME

June 10, 2017 @ 6:00 pm

$85

Love history, cheese and spirits? We sure do! We are thrilled to pair with Tom’s Town Distilling Co. for our first collaborative cocktail hour event! Tom’s Town is downtown Kansas City’s first legal distillery since Prohibition. Drawing inspiration from the country’s most polarizing and corrupt political boss, Tom Pendergast, Tom’s Town brings to life the glamorous magnetism of the Gatsby-era. Rooted in a deco optimism, Kansas City flouted Prohibition under the Pendergast machine. “King Tom’s” irreverence for federal statutes in favor of bare-knuckled local capitalism allowed his town to emerge as the “Paris of the Plains.” Spirits, money, and jazz flowed like water in the city’s world-renowned fountains. Legend has it that when a newspaperman asked Pendergast how he justified ignoring the federal statutes behind Prohibition, he shrugged and said, “The people are thirsty.” Today as Kansas City experiences its second cultural rebirth, the people are still thirsty. Join Green Dirt Farm and Tom’s Town distillery for an unforgettable night of delicious cheese, craft cocktails made with incredible spirits from Tom’s Town, live music and “let the free spirits reign.”
