Friday: Big Night

It’s Friday. Got plans? Lately I’ve been so utterly consumed with the business of getting through the work week that Friday arrives and I haven’t made a single plan. No dinner reservations. No dates with friends. Nothing on the books. A few weeks back, this lack of planning resulted in an epic wait at Beretta. Be advised. So normally I either spend the entire evening at home or venture out for an early drink at my local watering hole (the Latin American Club, for the curious) before calling it a night.

New Orleans Report: The Mixers Behind the Madness

Several local bartenders attended and worked behind the scenes to help all the events go. For instance, almost every seminar included multiple samples of various cocktails. They had to be made by someone, and at this seminar you can see that the drinks were mixed by Ryan Fitzgerald of Beretta and Thomas Waugh of Alembic.
