Tales of the Cocktail

I am very excited for Tales of the Cocktail this year as I finally got back on track to actually take advantage of the educational seminars that are my favorite part of this cocktail extravaganza.

Don't get me wrong.  I love the parties and seeing my friends from all over the world.  But now that I actually live here in New Orleans, I would encourage those friends to come back when it is not Tales so we can ran rampant all over the amazing city.

This year I will be Bar Smarts certified in one series of seminars and will learn more about my friend St John's idol, Charles H. Baker.

This year I am also hosting my first Spirited dinner.  This really is a dream come true.  During my first visit to Tales, I was asked to go to Bayona for their Tequila dinner by the lovely Heidi and Junior Merino.  I remember thinking how lucky I would be if I got to play host and pair cocktails with delicious food.  That is happening this Thursday Night at SoBou!  Well, actually that happened every night at SoBou.

Beyond the dinner, I also get to throw an awesome vintage Latin Themed 1940's party with my dear friend Lynnette!  Did I mention Chefs Table at Commander's Palace with a best gal pal from High School?  Its all just falling into place so nicely and I am so excited for what will be a whirlwind birthday week.  40 is the new...well, Happiness! find a man.
