3 Year Anniversary – Bourbon, BBQ, & Fried Chicken Tasting at Boxcar Social Harbourfront

Posted on Updated on


Toronto Common is celebrating 3 years of fun, tasting events around the city with a Bourbon, BBQ & Fried Chicken tasting at Boxcar Social Harbourfront!

Monday, January 30th, 7pm

With our Boxcar Social Whisky tastings sold out until March, we wanted to do a variation on the theme for our Anniversary event so regardless if you’ve been to an event already, are still hoping for tickets, or have tickets to an event coming up, you can still celebrate with us!

Bourbon is an American whiskey made primarily of corn and while we’ve showcased two bourbons so far in our whiskey events, this event will showcase it’s own depth with an all bourbon tasting.

Primarily produced in southern parts of the United States, we went back and forth between BBQ or Fried Chicken for the food pairing until we realized, why not have both!

Boxcar Social is giving us their night off so we have the venue all to ourselves!

Their Executive Chef, Nico Aldea will be preparing a special BBQ & Fried Chicken menu with southern comfort sides and Boxcar Social’s whiskey director will be showcasing 5 bourbons in a guided tasting.

Plus we’ll be finishing the night with our signature Orange and Black sesame cake for dessert!

* Due to the special menu for this event, ticket sales will be closing earlier than usual so the venue can prepare.

The Food Menu has been confirmed!
  • Buttermilk Fried Chicken
  • BBQ Ribs with Jerk Rub & Apricot BBQ Sauce
  • Maple Garlic Chicken Wings with Blue Cheese Dip, Hot Sauce, & Crudité
  • Pulled Pork Sliders with Carolina Sauce, Chipotle Mayo, Havarti, & Crispy Shallots
  • Potato Salad with Mayo and Crunchy Mustard Dressing & Fresh Herbs
  • Mac n’ Cheese with Cheddar Cheese Sauce & Peas
  • Coleslaw with Apple Cider Vinegar & Mayo Dression & Chopped Cilantro
  • Deep Fried Pickles
  • Classic French Fries
  • White Sliced Bread



Boxcar Social is quickly taking over the city landscape with a location in Summerhill, Leslieville, and now Harbourfront, plus two off shoots the Slip (summer patio) and Clocktower Bar.

The concept behind Boxcar Social was simple: Do what they love, do it with friends, and do it really well. Offering a curated, rotating list of coffees from the best roasters in the world, a careful selection of some of the world’s top wines, craft beers, and whiskies – they strive to create the most unique tasting experience for their customers. And enjoy every minute of it.
