Goings on

Not much happening, just a hell of a lot of prep work.

Tales of the CocktailI will be attending Tales of the Cocktail this year in New Orleans, LA.  I’m pretty excited about this, having only seen the sights a girl can see from Brooklyn Heights.  I’ll be participating as a contributer to the Tales of the cocktail blog, which should make for a nice work-style vacation, with plenty of drinking.  Tickets are on sale today, so go and get yours!  Gird your livers gentlemen and women!

I’ve added a page for TraderTiki on “teh FaceBook“.  Check it out, become a fan, write on my wall… and yes, I have a personal profile and will gladly accept a game of Scrabulous.

I haven’t been putting up much as far as drinks lately, for which I apologize.  The bar is undergoing a bit of a makeover for more storage space, and cocktails and sawdust don’t tend to mix too well.  It’s pretty much popero aniversario on the rocks for a few more days.

Speaking of sipping rums, I got a chance to try the Tommy Bahama “White Sands” white Rum.  It’s purportedly of Barbados origin, aged for 2 years in oak barrels.  If you ask me, it’s distilled and filtered ’til there’s nothing left.  No body, no nose, a nice buttery texture on the palate, but any flavor in there was far beyond the reach of my tastebuds.

I’ve got a few posts in the works, and a trip down to California next week, where there is no state board to double the cost of liquor.
