We’re within sight of Tales 2011, kicking off on July 20—which also happens to be my birthday. You don’t want to miss out on a booze-and-food-filled New Orleans extravaganza that takes place on my birthday, do you?
Tickets for seminars, parties, dinners and events are selling out quickly, so if you have any notion of going you should get yourself in gear and start booking. Just look at this excerpt from my most recent post on the Tales Blog (full of great behind-the-scenes previews of events):
This year Iris is hosting a Spirited Dinner featuring Todd Richman, Corporate Mixologist for Sidney Frank Importing, as well as mixologists Mark Stoddard (Bitter Bar, Denver) and Spencer Warren (Embury and Firehouse Lounge, Pittsburgh), who will be mixing cocktails using Michael Collins Irish Whiskey, Bärenjäger, Gekkeikan sake and American Harvest Organic Spirit.
Dinner will be a four-course affair by chef Ian Schnoebelen, featuring guanciale on bruschetta; a salad of duck prosciutto, soft-boiled duck egg, fennel and pecans; diver scallops and wild boar bacon with edamame hummus; and a chocolate terrine with goat cheese quenelles and blueberries. Hungry yet?
Get yourself cracking and reserve your seats, tables and rooms—Tales of the Cocktail is always a party you don’t want to miss.
