openroadwhiskey_Page_01Last week it was doughnuts and this week it’s booze. Any excuse for a party, right? In recognition of National Bourbon Day this Sunday, Merrifield’s Open Road Grill & Icehouse is launching a new whiskey menu to celebrate the spirit.

Debuting this weekend, drinks on the new menu of whiskey (with and without the “e”), Scotch, rye, bourbon range from several $9 options all the way up to $90 for some 20-year old Pappy Van Winkle.

Also, FYI, September is National Bourbon Heritage Month so don’t go too crazy this Sunday.
