 So there I was, nestled snugly between Good Friday and Easter, fully prepped for a tranquil night in, when Big Red buzzed me up. With a lure too tempting to resist, he promised a sneak peek into his coveted collection of prime, rare whiskey. How could I say no? The rain was drumming a steady rhythm outside, setting the perfect backdrop for what was to unfold.

Off to Big Red’s I went, and let me tell you, those whiskeys weren’t just rare; they were like sipping on distilled legends. But as the rain refused to let up, we figured the night was still young, and what better way to continue our spirited adventure than at Brush Creek Inn—a place where the whiskey flows as freely as the conversations.

No sooner had we bellied up to the bar than we found ourselves in the company of another bourbon aficionado. Together, we formed a triumvirate of taste, solving the world’s problems one sip at a time. Of course, no Pittsburgh gathering could ever steer clear of Steelers talk. We dissected the team’s highs and lows with the precision of seasoned coaches, all while the crowd swelled around us.

It wasn’t long before I spotted familiar faces in the throng. Brush Creek Inn, with its rare allowance for cigar smoking and abundance of room and free pool tables, was like a beacon for folks looking to unwind. It was the kind of place where you could lose track of time, enveloped in the warm embrace of good spirits and better company.

But then, as all epic tales must, this one too had its closing chapter. Easter was calling, and it was time for Noodles to bid adieu to the revelry. I left the Brush Creek Inn with a heart as full as the night was long, grateful for impromptu gatherings, shared laughter, and the simple pleasure of great whiskey among friends. What started as a venture into Big Red’s whiskey collection ended as a memorable prelude to Easter, proving once again that the best plans are often the ones you never make.
