I just left NOLA after completing my first Tales of the Cocktail. The enormity of this booze industry event is hard to quantify. I feel like I just ran a marathon, fought a protracted battle and possibly had one of the best times of my life. I have the creeping guilty feeling that I just got away with something, I was hobnobbing with giants and pretending be one of their kin. Nothing evens the playing field like copious amounts of alcohol.
Lots more on my TOTC adventure soon, but first here is a video live from the streets of New Orleans with my new brother in booze, the Rum Scout.
