DC—Eight popular District bars are teaming up for a tasting tour of eight fine Irish whiskeys during the first annual DC Whiskey Walk on Saturday, March 9th. Participants enjoy a different 1-ounce pour of a leading Irish whiskey included in their ticket price as they go from venue to venue. A portion of ticket sales will benefit Becky’s Fund and Washington Literacy Center, leading local non-profit organizations that directly support vulnerable populations in Washington DC.

Uber, the on-demand Black Car service, is giving a $20.00 first ride credit to new users who participate in the Whiskey Walk. The crowd will begin their day by checking in from 12:00-3:00pm at James Hoban’s, and then proceed in whatever order they choose during this unique all-day tasting tour.
