Tales of the Toddy (12/2/18)
Photos by Harold Spinner III

Tales of the Toddy 2018 was a celebration honoring and thanking the bartending community in New Orleans, the city our Foundation calls home. Once a consumer-facing event, this year’s Toddy was a party for the talented spirits and hospitality community who make Tales of the Cocktail possible each July and continue to make New Orleans a city essential to the innovative and international cocktail world.

This Sunday, December 2nd, in the space soon to be known as Storyteller x Tales, Tales of the Cocktail Foundation partnered with industry brands to raise a glass to the men and women of New Orleans’ cocktail and hospitality community who constantly impact and inspire us. Food was provided from Marjie’s Grill, music by ViVi & the Inspektor, a local artist raffle, and amazing cocktails were all part of the afternoon’s festivities. Additionally, thanks to Beam Suntory, because they have teamed up with 504Healthnet to provide health care navigators onsite to assist the guests who are interested in enrolling in affordable health insurance plans.

Tales of the Cocktail Foundation is also extremely grateful to their sponsors: Beam Suntory, William Grant & Sons, E&J Gallo, Q Drinks, Don Q, Moët Hennessy, Diageo, Mercer, and Cointreau.

Beginning January 1, 2019, Tales of the Cocktail Foundation will lease 129 Camp Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. The new concept, “Storyteller x Tales,” (verbally read “Storyteller by Tales,”) will serve as both an elegant and versatile private event space and, in the months to follow, a full-service cocktail bar, “Tales of the Cocktail Bar” will open on the first floor.Tales of the Toddy (12/2/18) Photos by Harold Spinner III Tales of the Toddy 2018 was a celebration honoring and thanking the bartending community in New Orleans, the city our Foundation calls home.
