Unwanted Penance

My lecture on the history of Prohibition in New Orleans is Thursday, November 14th at the Old U.S. Mint, 400 Esplanade.

Free reception at 6PM sponsored by Old New Orleans Rum. They will be serving up tasty (and strong) rum cocktails:

Between the Sheets:
1 oz. Old New Orleans Crystal Rum
1 oz. Orange Liqueur (Cointreau)
½ oz. Lemon Juice
1 oz. Cognac
Lemon twist garnish

El Presidente:
1 ½ oz. Old New Orleans Crystal Rum
½ Orange Curacao
¾ oz. French Vermouth
1 dash grenadine
Orange twist garnish

The lecture portion starts at 7PM.

The extremely gifted Mikko, Veronica Russell, and Andrew Ward will be lending their talents by doing dramatic readings from newspaper clippings, interviews, and old court cases.

Trixie Minx, the artistic director of Fleur de Tease, will be doing not one but TWO special dances.

There will also be some surprise musical performances…. Heheheheh…

And to keep the party going – the afterparty will be held at d.b.a at 618 Frenchmen Street, just a couple blocks away from the Mint. Guests of the lecture will receive wristbands so they can enter free and get drink specials!
