FOOD: Save New Orleans Cocktail Hour Tonight
Occasionally we diverge from our “FOOD: Not Restaurants” policy and profile something worthwhile happening in the restaurant world.
The Museum of the American Cocktail, a non-profit organization, and Southern Comfort‘s Tales of the Cocktail have organized a “Save New Orleans Cocktail Hour” today, September 12, 2005, to directly benefit a relief fund for New Orleans food & beverage industry workers who are out of work and out of money.
New Orleans is a restaurant and bar town. With the devastation to home and livelihood in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, thousands of the city’s hospitality workers face a pressing need in the coming months. It will take months for these businesses to become operational again and even longer before visitors, who are the source of that much-needed income, return to New Orleans.

So tonight, instead of whipping up your sugary sweet cocktail at home, head out on the town, and do something good for someone else. SKGR
