Jungle Jim's Whiskey Night: Frontier Style
This year, we’re taking it back to the earliest days of American history to pay homage to whiskey’s rich American heritage! As one of America’s signature creations, whiskey, especially bourbon, is a celebrated cultural artifact that transcends generations. Rediscover your love for America’s classic spirit with Jungle Jim’s Whiskey Night: Frontier Style as we celebrate the vibrant, time-honored tradition of American whiskey. This year, we’re bringing together more than 60 bourbons and whiskeys from across America and inviting you, whiskey connoisseurs and enthusiasts, to The Oscar Station, our brand-new Jungle Jim’s venue, for a night of good, “old fashioned” fun. With live music plus an array of whiskey-themed appetizers from The Oscar Event Center’s Executive Chef, Jungle Jim’s Whiskey Night is sure to be the most exciting evening of the year!
Whiskey and the American FrontierWhiskey is one of America’s first creations and has remained an American staple for hundreds of years! Beloved by early settlers, pioneers, and explorers, whiskey was a crucial element of the burgeoning American economy and helped support the country at its very beginning. As long ago as the Revolutionary War, whiskey was America’s drink of choice and a source of pride for Americans, as it is today.
