Art Basel brings so much cool stuff to Miami each year, but also throngs of people and a whole lot of hype. Tonight, however, far from the madding crowd, Two Chefs in South Miami will be offering a single malt sampling that is eminently reasonable in price: Twenty dollars will allow you to "Taste 5, Explore 10!", including a few rarities. Owner Jan Jorgensen allows that often "We say 'ten', but one person will ask to try this, another person that, and we can end up with 35 bottles on the bar." Two Chefs, incidentally, has the best single malt collection in the Southeast.
The sipping takes place from 5:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m., and there will be free hors d'ouerves. If you can't make it tonight, next Thursday will bring a different spirit sampling, as will every Thursday afterwards, presumably for quite some time -- Two Chefs has about a thousand different bottles on hand to try.
Remember to bring along a designated driver, though. Enough single malts can make you see double.
