Totally Toddied


The weather outside is not quite frightful, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a hot, holiday drink or two… or a dozen. On Thursday (12.17), 52 of NOLA’s top bartenders will serve up thousands of sample seasonal cocktails at the tenth annual Tales of the Toddy. NoDef spoke with USBG New Orleans President Mark Schettler to learn a bit about the backstory behind the bottles.
