Bon Vivant will be the premier food and beer event of Cincinnati, featuring mouth-watering food, exceptional beer, and craft cocktails at Urban Artifact. The brewing team has been hard at work for months designing a liquid 5-course meal for you, and this event will the be the culmination of that effort.

4) Maker’s Mark Presents: Thanksgiving Eve with The Tillers

On Thanksgiving Eve Arnold’s has teamed up with Maker’s Mark and The Tillers to offer the literally coolest giveaway Arnold’s has ever done. Having The Tillers booked on Thanksgiving Eve is honestly cool enough on its own but Arnold's will also have specials on Maker’s Mark cocktails and bourbon infused dinner specials all night. The most exciting part is they partnered up with The Neltner Small Batch, Otto Printing and Mus-i-col Record Pressing to offer a handmade, one off, limited edition 7” vinyl Record. The album is two brand new, previously unrecorded songs from The Tillers titled "Cincinnati Underworld Women" and "Tecumsah on The Battlefield." Add to that the record sleeve will actually be dipped in the same Maker’s Mark wax that their bottles are and you have one of the coolest collectibles you can get your hands on. As far as we know, it’s the only time anything like it has ever been done! The awesome part? It’s free! We are giving them all away. We have 150 total pressed on black vinyl to hand out and they will be first come first serve.

Drink and Menu Specials run all day, The Tillers take the stage at 9. The Records will be available at 8pm.
