Dinner Table Conversations: A Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Dinner

Calcasieu
Getting there
930 Tchoupitoulas Street, New Orleans, LA

Hosted by Jonathan Pogash and Pamela Wiznitzer of The Cocktail Guru So often we sit at organized dinners like this one, meet new people, exchange niceties, and then go off to our safe zones: our phones. How about we leave our phones at the door (in a safely secured spot, of course), and enjoy a 3-course family-style dinner and cocktail pairing (plus aperitif) that is centered around conversing with our table-mates. Food is what connects us to each other on a primal level - it not only nourishes our bodies, but gives breath to stories and conversation. Our food and drink should inspire (we hope!), while this technology-free Soirée promotes face to face interactions with those we have just met. So come hungry and thirsty...and ready to chat!
