Forget politics and Wachovia–Zink’s having a bourbon dinner!

That's right. Zink, the excellent Uptown restaurant run by the good people from Harper's Restaurant Group, is holding a five-course bourbon dinner this coming Tuesday. It's $65 per person. Not sure what it might cost if you just want to skip the food (not that I recommend doing that--Zink serves good food). Menu after the jump.
