On this week’s The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias, we welcome two great guests out of Atlanta – Tiffanie “The Drinking Coach” Barriere and Keyatta Mincey Parker! They are both super-talented bartenders. They are also both active in the bartending community as educators and as advocates for persons and women of color in the hospitality industry. We discuss what they do, their special relationship, and more.

We’re super pleased to have our good friends, Tiffanie “The Drinking Coach” Barriere and Keyatta Mincey Parker back on the show! We chat with them from Atlanta and catch-up on what they are both up to.
We cover a lot of ground in our conversation. One highlight is talking about a terrific urban community garden Keyatta started by and for bartenders called, “A Sip of Paradise Garden.” We chat about Tiffanie’s recent appearance on the Food Network’s “The Kitchen.” We touch on the scene in Atlanta, as well.
Also, we discuss their motivating relationship, how they met, how they support each other, as well as others in the bartending, hospitality, and spirits industries. We discuss the importance of inclusion and representation and how that influences their work and trajectories in the business.
Overall, it’s a fun, interesting, and inspirational conversation! Like a lot of shows (and, sorry, I say this a lot), we had some drinks and a great chat – a lot of which made it on the air (and a lot that didn’t)! But, you will want to catch it, all the same.
