In case you haven’t strayed over to the Tales of the Cocktail website recently, tickets are now on sale for the mightiest cocktail event of the year.
I know that cost can be an issue, but consider this: you can stay at the Hotel Monteleone, one of the city’s most elegant and historic hotels, for just $95 a night, and you can select from a range of packages and individual ticket options so you can create the kind of stay you want to have — from attending all the panel sessions, tasting events and cocktail parties you can cram into your day, to hand-picking a few things (including the Lost Ingredients and Cocktails and the Blogosphere panels, of course) and leaving ample time to sip and dine your way through New Orleans.
I promise you that many events will sell out, and ticket prices will increase on May 15, so it’s a good idea to make your arrangements now. And keep an eye on the Tales website — in early May, you’ll be able to purchase tickets to one of the Spirited Dinners on Thursday, July 19, a key part of the Tales experience.
Hope to see you there.
