Here goes a few things I learned at Tales of the Cocktail (Also things I already knew). Some interesting places, events, foods, restaurants, bartenders and more were discussed throughout this week! I could go on and on about the amazing things people discover in New Orleans as well as about New Orleans. Here Goes my Top Ten List of places, food, and history that seemed to intrigued the people I met the most.
- Visitors of New Orleans are crazy about Willie Mae’s Scotch House. Something about that Fried Chicken is driving the wild.
- Everyone loves getting lost in the French Quarter to admire the architecture. We really do have some great buildings that often time living here we take for granted.
- TOTC participants absolutely love talking about Prohibition especially New Orleans role. Well it’s New Orleans so of course this would be a hot topic.
- Sitting in PJ’s located in Royal Sonesta facing Bourbon Street is a great place to do some work and people watch!
- Chris Hannah Bartender of Arnaud’s French 75 Bar is beyond phenomenal. Glad to live here and be able to experience this location whenever I want.
- Red Fish Grill is a wonderful restaurant, Try the BBQ shrimp with the Rosemary Biscuit. This is honestly the type of meal I would like to go to sleep after every night if that was possible.
- Everyone is craving local favorite BBQ restaurant, The Joint. The Joint is seriously great BBQ, I love the briskets!
- Gallier Hall is a beautiful place you should visit at least once in your life. I been to Gallier Hall a few times but never fully admire it until this week, Phenomenal high ceilings and wonderful art, such as a Andrew Jackson piece and the portraits of the mayors of New Orleans.
- Rockin Dopsie Jr. is amazing artist, how could I live in New Orleans and not see him perform before this week; I have no clue. Definitely amazing experience. He has a voice that definitely makes you want to get up and dance.
- Hotel Monteleone has a great river-view of the city. It’s amazing looking over the city from up top. Wonderful!
