NEW YORK (March 13, 2018) — Jameson® Irish Whiskey is celebrating and shining a light on the unique tastes, sounds and characters found within the neighborhood bar with the debut of Jameson’s Love Thy Neighborhood Block Party Tour.
As a brand born in a local Dublin neighborhood, Jameson has grown up in neighborhood bars across the country with the support of the community – the breweries, the bartenders, the people.
With a nod to the classic neighborhood block party, Jameson is celebrating the aspects and features that make each local neighborhood its own special place.
Kicking off in San Diego, California, on Sunday, April 8, the inaugural Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Block Party in Support of Keep America Beautiful will give a first-hand look at Jameson’s commitment to local neighborhoods. The block party will feature great food and drinks along with live music from Jameson Music’s artists and craft brewers from Jameson’s established Drinking Buddies program.
Tickets for the Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Block Party in Support of Keep America Beautiful in San Diego are officially on sale for $35 and available for purchase at JamesonBlockParty.com. There is also an EARLY BIRD special, $30 ($5 off GA ticket of $35) until March 18. One purchased ticket covers admission into the festival, and includes food and tasting experiences.
“The neighborhood is the center of all that Jameson does. In fact, our local neighborhood in Dublin is where Jameson was born. Local neighborhoods are where Jameson will always be” said Sebastien Borda, Brand Director Jameson Irish Whiskey, Pernod Ricard USA. “Jameson is proud to celebrate the neighborhoods of the U.S. and invite fans to ‘Love Thy Neighborhood’ with us at these block parties, whilst also supporting Keep America Beautiful. These local block parties and communal gatherings celebrate the unique characteristics that make up the distinctive neighborhoods across the country.”
Launching in San Diego, CA, the Jameson Love Thy Neighborhood Block Party in Support of Keep America Beautiful and local affiliate I Love A Clean San Diego, is followed closely by a block party in Nashville, Tennessee, and Austin, Texas (Keep Austin Beautiful) on the following dates: San Diego, California, Sunday, April 8; Nashville, Tennessee, Sunday, April 29; and Austin, Texas, Sunday, May 20.
