The West End Tavern, 926 Pearl Street in Boulder, has been waiting years to release the Pappy Van Winkle exclusive bourbon -- seventeen years, in fact. Julian Van Winkle hand-selected the barrel to be bottled by the Tavern, and this is the only place you can get it. Celebrate at the Pappy Social, a release party starting at 6 p.m. tonight and featuring such drink specials as the Grand Pappy Cocktail, VIP Van Winkle Flight and more. Call 303-444-3535 or go to www.thewestendtavern.com for details.
