On June 2nd, 2018 you will want to be at Proof - A Whiskey Social.
This event is being presented by Hi-Time Wine Cellars and Westside Museum in Costa Mesa.
You've heard me mention Hi-Time on past episodes because their prices (and selection) are awesome...but this is something I'm really excited about...this is the tasting event of all tasting events. You can check out the Hi-Time Wine Facebook page and event page for Proof to see the updated list of whiskies that will be on hand, but there are over 200 whiskies to taste!
The event will be at the Westside Museum located at 729 Farad St in Costa Mesa, CA 92627.
All the whiskies being poured will also be available for purchase at a 10% discount (To be picked up at Hi-Time at a later date).
A portion of the proceeds from the evening will benefit Surfrider Foundation and their dedication to the protection and enjoyment of the world’s ocean, waves and beaches through a powerful activist network.
VIP tickets are $150 and include early entry at 1 p.m. with exclusive additional whiskies being poured only that hour.
General Admission is $100 and allows admission from 2-5 p.m.
Tickets can be purchased at Hi-Time Wine Cellars or online at https://www.hitimewine.net/proof
The Westside Museum is located at 729 Farad St, Costa Mesa, CA 92627.
Proof – A Whiskey Social wouldn’t be possible without the generous support of our sponsors. A special thank you to Westside Museum, Coast Magazine, Ryan Press and Dianco Wine Accessories.

The audio podcast can be heard below:
As a fan of scotch and other whiskeys I was tired of looking up reviews for new whiskeys that just oozed of snobbery. I wanted to create an outlet for average Joe's who don't have a sommelier palate. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, I moved to San Diego, California in 2010 with my wife. I'm also a fan of MMA, pro-wrestling, comic books, video games and strongman. All subjects are topic for discussion on the podcast.
