This July, during Tales of the Cocktail in New Orleans, I will be hosting a seminar on Tiki Now!
The seminar is an investigation and analysis from the death of the Tiki Bar to the resurgence and new trends emerging from it. Tiki is even being seen as a major menu component at non-tiki bars, such as NYC's Death and Co, and Seattle's Naga Lounge. Some bars are even having special Tiki nights, such as Drink in Boston, and Teardrop Lounge in Portland. The tiki revival is here, and this session will chronicle its growth, as well as passing the good word of true tropical libations.
Martin Cate (our own dear Martiki) will be a guest panelist, as well as whoever else I drag up, to be announced later.
The session is being sponsored by DonQ Rum, and will feature modern tropical classics, and is to be held Saturday, July 24, 2010 3:30 PM to 5:00 PM Grand Ballroom North, The Royal Sonesta Hotel.
Tickets will be available soon, and I'll post when available. Event information available at the TotC Tiki Now site.

I guess this makes me a real drag....
Hope to see you all there!
