The Perle on Maple is hosting an event with light bites by executive chef Wade Burch, Heaven’s Door whiskey cocktail samples and — really — an interactive blacksmithing experience. Apparently Heaven’s Door has partnered with Bob Dylan, and each bottle shows the work of Dylan’s welded iron gates from his studio, Black Buffalo Ironworks. A blacksmith will hammer knives on-site, which can go home with guests. The cocktail tasting will show a trilogy of Heaven’s Door’s whiskeys: Tennessee straight bourbon, straight rye whiskey and double barrel whiskey.
