Father’s Day weekend was a blast for the Texas team at Nine Banded Whiskey. On Friday we trekked north to the Dell Diamond to watch the Round Rock Express Game as a family to watch our co-founder Chris Ogden throw out the first pitch (a bit high and a bit outside) . We all enjoyed hot dogs, specialty cocktails, and some good ole’ fun! Even though the home team lost it was still a great time had by all.
On Saturday we journeyed east to The Long Time watch our partners and friends the Texas Playboys won their game against The Sauce of New Orleans. The community came together to enjoy a classic American pastime with an Austin twist. The kids went for a cool swim, the dogs ran about, and the adults socialized with a Nine Banded Whiskey Old Fashioned. The next game is July 13th at the Long Time! Come around!
After the game ended that evening we celebrated Waylon Jennings’ birthday in the heart of Austin with our friends at Arlyn Studios where legends such as Willie Nelson, Les Paul, and Neil Young have recorded. This party was the second thrown by the Austin Originals which includes our partners’ Tito’s, Arlyn, Panacea, and ALL ATX - a local music charity organization. The night was filled with laughter, live music, and delicious drinks by Nine Banded Whiskey. One of our themed drinks was aptly named “A Man Called Hoss,” made with our whiskey, simple syrup, and orange bitters.
This upcoming month we’re going to have more fun all over Austin and elsewhere and we’d love for you to be a part of it. To keep up with where we are subscribe to our newsletter or follow us on Instagram and Facebook!
