Tales of the Cocktail Brings Opera and Alcohol To Fulton Alley

The ‘Ode To The Bowl’ Tournament took over Fulton Alley for a night of friendly competition and free pizza

Published on Wednesday, Jul 18th, 2018

For the 7th straight year, Tales of the Cocktail took over a local bowling alley to pit alcohol industry reps and bartenders from around the country against each other, all in the name of seeing which city ruled the world’s second drunkest sport (shout-out to darts).

This year, Tales stopped in at Fulton Alley, providing attendees with free boozy punches and New Orleans classics like red beans and rice and crawfish mac and cheese. Every available game across the bar and bowling alley was occupied throughout the night, with people taking each other on in bocce, foosball and darts.

The pinheads were also in for a surprise when Cynar showed up with free pizza and samples of their artichoke liqueur. While pizza always carries a bit of gravitas when it’s being offered up to crowds of drunks, the brand drove the occasion home by marching it out in between attendants holding sparklers, an opera singer and a violinist.
