Whiskey Tasting - Friday, May 26

posted May 7, 2017, 9:06 AM by Nashoba Valley Neighbors Webmaster

Gentlemen: Come one, come all, to the annual Whiskey Tasting night at 6:30pm on May 26! We had such a great time last fall that we've decided to hold another one in the spring at Dave S's house. There will be plenty of food and drink to enjoy, and cigars if you are so inclined. 

We have some bottles from the previous tasting, so to provide some variety feel free to bring a bottle of your favorite spirit if you like (this is optional; believe me, we'll have plenty to drink!).  Remember that all attendees are not allowed to drive home; please arrange transportation for the evening.

As of now, we are estimating it will cost about $20 per person; that may change slightly as we get closer and see how much food we have to buy.  Not a bad price for an evening out with the guys, all the whiskey you can drink, and loads of laughter!

Dinner and Drinks at new BrewPub - Thursday, Feb 9 at 6:30pm

posted Feb 7, 2017, 8:37 AM by Nashoba Valley Neighbors Webmaster

Join us as we try the newest brewery in town, Battle Road Brewing at 8 Clock Tower Place in Maynard.  With many types of beers and other libations to choose from, the jam-packed location is proving to be a real hit.  And although the tours of the brewery aren't available yet, once they begin we will certainly be taking a behind-the-scenes tour of the beer making process.  Contact David S to RSVP or email for more information.

Info on Battle Road Brewing:

The restaurant and brew house opened its doors in a historic mill that was once the largest woolen factory in the world.  Taking inspiration from its revolutionary roots, Battle Road Brew House is not your typical brewpub. With a shared focus on beer-friendly foods from both sides of the Mason-Dixon, Chef Jordan Mackey balances his menu with equal parts real pit Southern BBQ (think: slow smoked ribs meat from multiple hardwood smokers and homemade sauces and rubs) and distinctly New England seafood like clams, oysters, chowder, fried fish, seafood boils, and more.

Hey NVN Guys, it's time for a Billiards Night again.  We'll be meeting up at the Billiards Cafe, 39 Main St, Ayer for dinner and billiards on Thursday Nov 10th at 6:30pm.  So, please join us for some dinner, drinks, and "casual" billiards play.  Contact Dave T to be added to the eVite or email for more information.

Whiskey Tasting Event - Friday October 14 at 6:30pm

posted Sep 10, 2016, 11:28 AM by Nashoba Valley Neighbors Webmaster

Gentlemen: Back by popular demand, our famous Whiskey Tasting Event is coming up! The June event was so popular that we decided to have a second one this year.

On Friday, October 14th at 6:30 PM we'll gather for whiskey (and cigars for those who wish) at David S's house. Come sample a variety of whiskeys; additionally, feel free to bring a bottle of your own liking if you wish (not mandatory, we'll have plenty to drink).

Food will be served to compliment the drink du jour. And for those who don't want to drink whiskey, come anyway! Soft drinks will be provided.

Come for the comraderie! Come for the laughs! Come just to hang out with the guys!

As with every whiskey event, the cardinal rule that must be followed is: Attendees may not drive themselves home. You MUST be picked up by a sober adult if you are imbibing.

Because we still have some bottles from the previous tasting, the cost for the evening will only be around $15 (the final cost will be determined by the number of attendees).

RSVP to David S. or contact for more information.
