My flight to Tales of the Cocktail leaves Sunday morning.
I’m pleased to be a part of the Education Fellowship program, which I’m pretty sure is the fanciest euphemism for “volunteer” I’ve ever heard.
This is my first year at Tales. I’m a little overwhelmed. The schedule is almost 80 pages long.
But I’m armed with freshly printed business cards. My seminar tickets will take me places I only dreamed about when I jokingly wrote my way through this piece. And it’s high time I learned how to navigate high-volume all-day cocktail tastings. Restraint, temperance, self-control, abstemiousness: time for a workout.
Check out my trip on Instagram and I’ll see you back here for write-ups.
