2009 Spirited Dinner Series

It's hard to belive that in just two months, it will be time for Tales of the Cocktail, one of our favorite events of the year. Tales 2009 will once again be the place to be for cocktail enthusiasts the week of July 8–12 in New Orleans, and this year we're excited to be joining together with St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur to sponsor the 2009 Spirited Dinner Series on Thursday, July 9, at 25 of the best restaurants around New Orleans. These dinners are always a highlight of Tales with acclaimed local chefs pairing up with some of the country's most talented bartenders, spirits experts and authors for an unforgettable drinking and dining experience. Tickets to these dinners tend to go fast, so be sure you check out the list of dinners and get your tickets early—this year's menus look fantastic! Here's a sneak peek of just a few of the pairings you can look forward to enjoying, and for a full list you can visit the Tales website.
