New Orleans African American Museum’s (NOAAM) annual Sips & Spirits
December 14, 2023 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
The New Orleans African American Museum’s (NOAAM) annual Sips & Spirits event is a casual, high-end happy hour featuring community dignitaries who support Black arts. The 3-hour ticketed event, including one main bar and two satellite bars will offer guests signature cocktails mixed, shaken, and stirred by New Orleans’ favorite local celebrities-turned-bartenders.
Inspired by the native New Orleanian poet, writer and educator, Professor Arturo, guests can purchase tickets at three different tiers as an homage to the City’s unique colloquialisms in his chapbook “A Dictionary of New Orleans Slang”.
The event is hosted by NOAAM and includes Celebrity Bartender Eve Haydel and Host committee Marc H. Morial, Judge Lori Jupiter and Dr. Rochelle Ford.
Dec. 14, 2023 from 6:00pm-9:00pm Central
