Chevy-Chase-Inn-Pappy-Van-Winkle-2

Thanksgiving is coming early this year. This Sunday, November 18, find your way to Lexington, Kentucky, for “Pappy Thanksgiving,” a bonkers event at the Chevy Chase Inn—the city’s oldest bar—where they’ll pour different Pappy expressions at cost. Yes, at cost. That means a 1.5-ounce pour of Old Rip Van Winkle Distillery 10 Year will run you $5, Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year “Lot B” will cost $6.25, 15 Year will be marked at $8.50, and 20 Year will come in at $14.25. How do you get in on this insanity? Well, it won’t be easy, as it’s not exactly an infinite supply of hooch. Doors open at 2pm and everyone in line receives a number. At 4:30pm, the Chevy Chase Inn will start selling pours, with a guarantee that the first 70 people in line will be covered. We’d be shocked if there aren’t far more than 70 people in line, so best to show up early.

 You can’t have a fall evening without a fire. And you can’t have a fire without a Cowboy Cauldron. They’re built from solid plate steel, meaning they’ll last a lifetime or two and they come in four different sizes with elevated basins that can be adjusted to any height. We’re going with The Urbaan Cowboy® because it’s perfect for entertaining at home.  With a 30″ diameter basin, it is more than large enough to have a nice fire, but still small enough to pack into a pickup truck and take it with you.  Can you imagine the envy when we bust this puppy out at a tailgate or the beach? We haven’t seen a more handsome fire. You?  Best of all, Cool Material readers get an exclusive deal.
