Catoctin dinner at Boss Shepherd's in DC

In the short time that Boss Shepherd's has been open, they've already had critical acclaim, most notably from Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post, for their honest menu and well made cocktail program. The fried chicken (made with a 12 hour brining process) has become legendary in DC.  And since their arrival on Pennsylvania Avenue just over a year ago, they've always been a great supporter of Catoctin Creek.

Join Scott & Becky as we team up with the Chef Waybright and restaurant staff for a dining event you won't want to miss.  We'll be dining in the private dining room (usually reserved for VIPs like Michelle Obama and Senator McConnell, both who've been seen dining there).  Our meal will guide us through four courses, and will include the debut of the Catoctin Creek private barrel whisky, especially made for Boss Shepherd's!  You'll be the first to taste this rare and one-time-only release!

About the Artists:  Ari Hest

Ari Hest

Ari Hest creates a non-typical collection of tracks that ultimately form a cohesive narrative. With songs of sadness and resignation giving way to lucidity and catharsis, Hest's introspection and intelligence are on display, creating moments of magic within his poetic, spare lyrics and backing them up with his ear for haunting melodies.

Hest conceived half of his latest album 'Shouts and Whispers' as an acoustic set, while the other half took shape via keyboards, as he explains below. 'Shouts and Whispers' begins with the swirling, hypnotic 'Harvest', soon followed by a centerpiece track, the stunning, understated 'Into the Empty White'. 'How We'll Always Be' is perhaps a declaration of giving up the fight, and the melancholy 'No One Can Stay' has an elegant darkness. There's a glimmer of hope within 'Bona Fide', and finally a cathartic yowl as 'After The Thunder' builds to its crescendo.
