Tales of a Six Day Bender

Tales of the Cocktail hits the streets July 18 - 23 and we've got the inside scoop on some of the highlights.

It's that time of year again - when the city is alive with the sound of cocktail shakers from the supremely talented lineup of locals and non locals taking part in the next round of Tales of the Cocktail, kicking off next week. Here, the top six reasons you should take part in this year's festivities...

1. Give your bar cart an upgrade and shop legit barware during the Meet the Makers series - we're obsessed with the libation tools (pictured) from Charles Joly. 

2. Celebrate the females who take their mixing very seriously during the Dame Hall of Fame. Open to the public, the event celebrates movers and shakers - one of whom is NOLA's own Katy Casbarian, co-proprietor of Arnaud's. 

3. Want a buzz with your buzz? Score an afternoon pick-me-up of coffee meets frozen and whiskey-forward sips during the Bulleit Frontier Whiskey Happy Hour at Revelator Coffee Company on Wednesday, July 19 - Saturday, July 22, from 3:30 - 5:30 p.m. RSVP required.

4. Because you believe that meals are best served with equal amounts of food and booze, check out the lineup of Spirited Dinners. From plant-based plates to tequila-themed meals, the options are a plenty. RSVP ASAP - seating is limited.

5. Enjoy tongue-in-cheek cocktails and be wowed by the 8 massive barrels of punch crafted by hosts The Bon Vivants during the 8th Annual Pig & Punch Sunday, July 23. 

6. Make your way to the finish line during the Freret Street Bar Crawl Sunday, July 23, where there will be more sips and eats to partake in than any year before.
