What better location to host such event than Rye 51, a custom men’s clothing brand whose theme is based on bourbon and whiskey. The evening included an excellent food pairing from a local favorite, Lockhart Smokehouse, free hot shaves for the gents and of course, some really great cocktails!
Originally designed for the Neiman Marcus Fantasy Gift Guide, the Bulleit Woody Trailer is bringing an elevated tailgating experience to America by touring across the nation throughout the fall and throwing upscale tailgates. For a newcomer to the tailgate scene, I sure started off on a high note.
There are a few more stops on Woody’s schedule in the Dallas area this weekend. These events are open to the public however, you must be 21+.
