Percy Street Barbecue has snagged a few bottles of the practically impossible to secure, Pappy Van Winkle 10, 12 and 23 year old bourbons, and they’re pairing the bourbon with a special brisket dinner for some quick-fingered followers of Percy Street.
Percy Street is offering three bourbon + brisket dinners for a maximum of eight guests for $800 (includes tax and gratuity). The dinner will include pours of all three of the Pappy Van Winkle bourbons, a whole brisket plus off-menu dishes and treats created by chef/owner Erin O’Shea.
The dinners will be released one at a time via Twitter and Percy Street's email newsletter. First email reply scores the dinner.
