Frank Lloyd Wright, architect and designer of the Dana-Thomas House, enjoyed the occasional nip of bourbon and even has a bourbon drink named in his honor. With that in mind, the Dana-Thomas House Foundation is hosting The Wright Bourbon, Brisket and Blues fundraiser for an evening of sipping bourbon, enjoying a good meal and listening to some smooth sounds. Springfield Carriage Co. will provide the brisket, and bourbon aficionado Roger Huebner, among others, will donate bourbon, including some high-end selections.  Bourbon experts will also be on hand to discuss the finer points of the liquor. Advance tickets are $55 and additional tastings will be available for purchase at the event. Wine and beer will also be available.  Proceeds from the event will benefit the Dana-Thomas House Foundation’s neighborhood improvement efforts, which will be highlighted at the event.
