Raising A Glass For Exchange Program
A vodka tasting event is planned for Thursday to raise money for the Vladimir-Canterbury sister cities program. Dave Thomas of Illinois State University's school of Kinesiology and Recreation says there will be light snacks available to help keep the palate clean. He says they will also have experts on hand to discuss the vodkas available.
He says unlike wine tasting, this is not a "swirl and spit," tasting. He says each attendee will get the chance to sample three different vodkas, using a shot glass. The event, at the Hy-Vee grocery tasting room, will be from 5-til-8 Thursday evening.
