Palm Wine Cocktails at Jameson Connects this Weekend

NOSA: Forgive us for being slow, but we just realized that Jameson Connects is on Independence Day this year. Green bottles + the Nigerian flag = very very on brand.

This year’s edition will be at The Old Running Shed, Ebute-Metta on Sunday, 1st October 2017. If you attended Jollof, it’s smack in the middle of the railway compound and super close to Jaekel House.

FOLLY: It's also the same venue where SheLeadsAfrica had the SLAYFestival

Jameson embodies the down -to -earth character of Dubliners, a trait that it shares with Nigerians. Jameson Connects Nigeria has taken its place as the country’s most beloved alternative event for its ability to provide guests with the perfect atmosphere to enjoy the premium Whiskey in an unpretentious environment. This year, the space is The Old Running Shed which currently houses some train relics, a kitchen module used for Prime Minister Tafawa Balewa’s train and a carriage that was part of the Royal train in 1956. Located in The Nigerian Railway Compound in Ebute- Metta, a seat of power of the British Colony for many years, there is no doubt that this will be an experience to remember.

NOSA: We weren’t able to make it last year because our real lives got in the way so we’re definitely making up for it this year. The Man is always trying to stop you from living your best life. You can't let him win.

FOLLY: Especially when there's complimentary cocktails on the table, each attendee gets three drink tickets #ResponsibleDrinking

Get ready to vibe to sounds from alternative Afro-Soul singer- songwriter, pianist, Kaliné whose unique voice and style has seen her open for musical legends such as Chaka Khan, Angélique Kidjo to name a few!

NOSA: I’ve mentioned it in one of our Weekenders, the Show Dem Camp EP is absolutely amazing. So if, like me, you’re a fan, then Jameson Connects should be a lot of fun.

FOLLY: Maybe I'll finally listen to their music

Mix palm wine vibes and palm wine music and you are immediately transported to a chilled zone which eases the stress of Lagos, making you ‘feel alright’… This year’s headliners Show Dem Camp are credited for starting this laid back style of party music which has now taken on a life of its own.

NOSA: Oh, and Jameson will have a special Palm Wine cocktail on the day.

What’s an outdoor experience without the food? Food Shack will be bringing the gourmet junk food experience.  Enjoy local fusions from Firewood rice, Jabi Meals, Usman Delicacies, Rainbow Puff-puff and Melting Moments.
