Amazing building design, and so much history pass through those doors.

Interesting Fact: From 1983 until 2007, the church was utilized as a nightclub, The Limelight. After frequent problems with the police and charges of rampant drug abuse in the club, it was closed, but reopened in 2003 under the name “Avalon”. It closed permanently in 2007.  ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Church_of_the_Holy_Communion_and_Buildings )

Day 75 / 365

Drinking whiskey makes you frisky.         🙂

Interesting Fact: Gentleman Jack is charcoal mellowed before going into the barrel. Gentleman Jack, however, receives an additional “blessing” when it is charcoal mellowed again after reaching maturity – making it the only whiskey in the world to be charcoal mellowed twice, giving it ultimate smoothness. Gentleman Jack is full-bodied with fruit and spices, and its finish is silky, warm, and pleasant. When you drink Gentleman Jack, do so with pride, for this is the whiskey a gentleman orders.
