First up: Grab & Geaux: Let’s Blow This Popsicle Stand
Wednesday, July 19, 2017 from 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm
Hotel Monteleone Lobby
We know it’s hot and humid outside. We also know that most everyone needs a little agave in their lives. So, we’ve teamed up with sweets aficionado, Country Velador, owner of Super Chunk Sweets & Treats of Scottsdale, AZ. She’s created 3 delicious booze-enhanced popsicles to quench your thirst on those hot NOLA afternoon. Stop by the Hotel Monteleone Lobby and grab (and go) a couple pops for the road!
Next up: Tasting Room – U.S. Cocktail Bars Tour
Thursday, July 20, 2017 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm
Hotel Monteleone, Royal Rooms A & B
Think of this as a food truck alley but instead of fabulous plates, bartenders will be mixing up custom cocktail creations. 9 different bartenders from across the U.S. will pop up to shake or stir some of their own innovations featuring Azuñia Tequila. Also featured in the Tasting Room, Azuñia Black, our 2-year, Extra Aged Añejo served by some of our lovable reps. We will be hanging out at the Hotel Monteleone in Royal Rooms A & B. Stop by and take a sip of the luscious libations.
