Men, Whiskey & Watches
The first annual Men, Whiskey & Watches was held Friday, Dec. 6, in the Cà d’Zan Cigar Room at the Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota. Lamborghinis were displayed at the entrance as guests arrived, red-carpet style.
In addition to the beautiful car display, the event featured whiskey tastings, premium cigars, a display of luxury watches and various vendors for men’s style. The event ran from 2 to 6 p.m., but the party didn’t stop there – following the event, guests gathered for an after party at Social on First.
Courtney Edbrooke and Angela Nutter co-chaired the event, which benefited the Child Protection Center.
