Sigel's Will Let You Sample Booze and Dip Things in Wax on Thursday

Sigel's has an interesting pre-Father's Day event. We promise not to judge you if you leave immediately to snag a place in line.

On Thursday from 6 to 8 the Sigel's at 5757 Greenville Avenue is having a Maker's Mark Bourbon Red dipping event and tasting. From Jasper at Sigel's: "At the distillery in Loretto, Kentucky, each bottle's glass neck is hand-dipped into red sealing wax and then twisted to allow the excess to drip and run down the neck."

The red-wax dipping technique will be on full display and you can participate while sampling the goods.

You can actually bring anything -- seriously, anything -- to be dipped in the red wax, which is really a whole new ball game. There are so many opportunities to express your love (or lack thereof) for dad by having things dipped.

Like, if dad is the cat's meow, maybe dip the cat. Sacrifice is a great show of love.
