    Thanks for the recap Rick. Otherwise I would have missed The Liquid Muse’s post on how to “Conduct a home tasting panel.” That was a great piece of info.

    But as to my favorite, it has to be your post on “Tiki Drinks from A to Zombie.” Well, I’m biased towards rum and Tiki, so…

    Alas, that same post is also my least favorite as it almost made me cry about missing TotC. See you next year!

  2. Also, if you’re interested, I posted a good dozen items about TOTC on my blog, Off the Presses. Saw you on the blogosphere panel. Nice job.

  3. I don’t know if I have a favorite moment. It’s all sort of a blurry goodness. Though I found myself laughing out loud in the airport when I was trying to schedule where I’d be every second of the day and making tough choices like ice vs. sake.

    Camper, I completely agree. I was more than distressed after having built up my excitement for the rye panel to find out it was the same time as Cocktails and the Blogosphere!

    You guys are killing me. I really, really wanted to make it to Tales this year, so of course this was the one where I wasn’t even on the continent.

  6. Meeting other cocktail bloggers was my favorite moment!!

    btw – I have more Tales coverage… just haven’t gotten to it all… Sooo much to cover!
