I was so excited when I won tickets from Yelp to attend the Station Street Sip & Savor at the Chattanooga Choo Choo. I attend lots of the food and drink events in Chattanooga, but somehow I had missed this one. Now, I am so sorry that I missed any of them, this was the best food and drink event that I’ve attended!! First of all it was at the Choo Choo, which is the perfect location. It was miserably hot and I knew we would be able to step inside and cool off if we needed to.
The event is set up in a long u-shape. So it’s really easy to keep track of where you’ve been. There is a booklet that maps everything out for you so that you can go back and hit your favorites again! Music is at each end of the event.
The first thing I’d like to address is the Sip part of Sip & Savor. Oh my, where to begin. There is something for everyone here! Not only is there plenty of beer and wine for everyone, there is whiskey, gin, and liqueurs. So much to choose from, I started with cocktails, moved on to some whiskey tasting, tried some wine and finished with beer. I know this sounds like a lot, but it was small amounts of each and I also filled in with plenty of water since it was so hot.
My husband’s favorite was definitely the Redemption Whiskey, he paced out his tasting and we looped back to this table every so often for him to try a different one.
Now, let’s talk about the savor part of Station Street Sip & Savor. There was plenty of good food to go around. There were lots of different takes on barbecue, I would have liked to see a few more cooler options like salads. But everything I tried was wonderful.
It was miserably hot on this day and I still had a fantastic time. If you knew how much I hate hot weather, you would know how good this event was! Lots to drink, lots to eat, lots of friendly people and music…what more could you ask for?
