The NOLADrinks Show with Bryan Dias – Tales of the Cocktail 2022 Annual Preview – 2022Ep17
It’s always good to bring back a show we love to do – our annual Tales of the Cocktail 2022 preview! If you are a regular listener of the show, you know that we always cover Tales of the Cocktail pretty extensively, year-round. But there is nothing like bringing you our preview show for the upcoming event and it’s their 20th anniversary, to boot!
We’re joined by Eileen Wayner, CEO of the Tales of the Cocktail Foundation. She gives us a full rundown on this year’s event kicking off Monday, July 25 and running through Friday, July 29. We discuss a wide-range of things you need to know about this important drinks industry happening that is back in full-force and in-person here in New Orleans – “the way mother nature intended it!”
We touch on the change of venue to the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Eileen lets us know about the breadth of terrific seminar programming ranging from “Spirits 101” stuff to those tackling important social issues in the industry. Of course, we talk about the tasting events, the parties, and much more.
Importantly, we let you know, whether an industry professional or enthusiast, how you can attend this great event. Eileen sticks around for our podcast-only segment, “Another Shot with NOLADrinks,” where we go further into the topics we discuss. We close things out with a message to folks who think that Tales needs to be “just about drinks.”
As always, thanks to our friends at the Southern Food and Beverage Museum for hosting us!
Cheers and Be Well, You All!
