Sorry for the last minute info, but I just found out about this nationwide fundraiser that happens today from 5-7PM (too late for East Coast but starting now on West Coast):
On Monday, September 12th, between the hours of 5:00pm and 7:00pm, bar customers across the nation will raise their glasses for a "Save New Orleans Cocktail Hour" as bar and restaurant owners shake up New Orleans' classic cocktails to directly benefit New Orleans food and beverage industry workers who are out of work and sorely in need of funds for rebuilding their lives. During this special event New Orleans classics will be offered at participating bars for $10 per drink. Receipts from the "Save New Orleans Cocktail Hour" will be donated to a special tax-deductible relief fund established by the Museum of the American Cocktail.
List of participating bars: http://museumoftheamericancocktail.org/Cocktail200/#bars
If you missed it or can't make it here's a list of New Orleans cocktails you can try at home while writing that check to your favorite relief organization: http://museumoftheamericancocktail.org/Cocktail200/NewOrleansCocktails.html
