Drinking in the Blues at Nancy Whiskey, Detroit on Feb. 13!

We are tickled like the Tullamore Dew for getting back to Nancy Whiskey in Detroit on Saturday, Feb. 13.

Lit, street parking with friendly neighbors and helpful security, Nancy’s is true Detroit grit! If you haven’t been out for Opening Day or Saint Patrick’s parade pre- and post-, what are you waiting for? We’ll hit the stage around 9 pm or so! Come on out and get a seat as it will fill up early!... read more
