On my last day in New Orleans, I went to see Wayne do a presentation “Beyond Punch: Colonial American Drinks and How to Mix ‘em” at the Museum of the American Cocktail. Much like his book, AND A BOTTLE OF RUM: A HISTORY OF THE NEW WORLD IN TEN COCKTAILS the talk was funny and historical. It was also interactive (cocktails all around) -- he even ignited rum with gunpowder - super old school style. It was great to see him in his element (not that sitting on the porch waiting for the fedex man to deliver another bottle of something isn't his element as well) and awesome to see the museum and all the cool memorabilia and displays.
Then off to meet Emma in the Quarter for our last dinner and last brass band at a random hotel bar.
