Cool River is known as a prime destination for cocktails, but the noted steakhouse is also the ideal destination for bourbon and cigars. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. on the first Friday of each month, the restaurant hosts a bourbon tasting and cigar event in the Cigar and Cognac Lounge for $35 per person. On Feb. 7, a representative from Garrison Brothers Distillery will discuss and offer samples of premium featured pours paired alongside unique hors d’oeurves created by Chef Fernando Rodriguez. Guests will receive a complimentary cigar by Master Cigar Roller Mario Almanza and may purchase additional premium hand-rolled cigars. Reservations are required and may be made by calling (214) 492-0343.
