Whiskey connoisseurs, your time has come. Jungle Jim's Whiskey Night is back, in swinging prohibition-style.

On Feb. 24 at 7 p.m., shebas and sheiks, gangsters and molls will come together for an indulgent night of whiskey and bourbon.

>> New Troll Pub to open by St. Patrick's Day

Guests can expect live music from The Dirty Shirleys, scrumptious samplings of whiskey and bourbon-infused food from the in-house Oscar Kitchen, and hand-rolled cigars for purchase (the Oscar Balcony will be open for cigars and drinks).

Jungle Jim's is also offering a Whiskey 101 Class, limited to the first 40 people in line with "lessons" provided by Whiskey Pette, Molly Wellmen, a.k.a. the First Woman of Bourbon and Joe Head of Century Bar, voted Best Bourbon Bar in Ohio. There will also be a VIP experience, but VIP tickets have sold out.

General Admission tickets include eight samples plus a bonus cocktail, access to master distillers, and, of course, delicious bites to eat throughout the night. If you’re not a drinker, don’t despair, there is an option for you also. Enjoy complimentary water, coffee, and soda, and samplings from in-house Oscar Kitchen. There will also be a raffle which benefits One Way Farms.
