After a hard day at the office, nothing goes down smoother than a whiskey on the rocks. At this year’s Whiskey Business, you’ll find plenty of the classic oak-aged spirit, along with scotch, bourbon and rye from around the world. Slip into a cocktail dress or blazer and, with an endless stream of booze on hand, enjoy entertainment from local performers Blue Star, Kissa Von Addams, Tymisha Harris and DJ BMF & the Phat-N-Jazzy Horns, as well as gourmet bites from some of Orlando’s best restaurants. If you’re one of the lucky few who picked up a discounted designated driver ticket, rest easy: You can still get into the atmosphere by sampling a cigar in the lounge. Indulging your love of Jim Beam and Jack Daniels also comes with the peace of mind that a portion of the event’s profits go to the Camaraderie Foundation, a nonprofit that provides support for military families transitioning from the battlefield back to society.
