Nostalgia for the 1970s and a taste for fine single-malt Scotch whisky fused into an electric evening for visitors to the Goldstein Museum of Design. For the museum’s American Hustle Scotch Tasting, guests dressed in their vintage best to celebrate the disco-drenched decade. For their efforts, they received a behind-the-scenes look at fashions from the museum’s exclusive collection. Of course, there also was a Scotch tasting. Guests sampled five single-malt Laphroaig Scotch whiskies and learned about the distinctive characteristics of the drink that’s kept its appeal longer than the Bee Gees.
