Tales of the Cocktail Tickets

Tickets are now available for Tales of the Cocktail, and most importantly for me, the spirited dinners. I dashed to the site and saw with glee that I was the first to sign up for a tiki-infused dinner hosted by Beachbum Berry and Wayne Curtis at the Delachaise.

Chef Chris Debarr performed like a wizard last year, enticing my taste buds so effectively that I would have returned even without the promise of exotic cocktails for every course!

    We’ll be there!

    Where did you find the descriptions of the dinners? I see them for sale (oddly, as they’re not supposed to be there until 5/1) but I can’t find menus / mixologists listed anywhere.

    I actually didn’t see the descriptions either, but I had planned on going to the tiki dinner since I heard about it. If descriptions aren’t up by the 1st, I’ll check with Ann from Tales to see if we can get them up there.

Kaiser Penguin is a cocktail blog featuring original recipes, homemade ingredients, classic cocktails, and tiki drinks.

Why on Earth did you name your blog “Kaiser Penguin?”

It is a well-known fact that penguins are members of high society and enjoy fine cocktails. Our very own kaiser penguin would like me to mention that he also enjoys various treats from the sea.
