Know a Good Bartender?

The Southern Foodways Alliance--with support from Southern Comfort--is producing an oral history project on the bartenders of New Orleans. Amy Evans, our resident oral historian, will be heading to the Big Easy next month to work on the project, and she is looking for interesting subjects. If you know of any bartenders--working or retired--in the NOLA area, who would have a few good stories to tell, please pass along their information. (Also, if you know of interesting bartenders anywhere in the South, please tell us about them too.) Amy can be reached at or by calling her at (662) 915-5993. Thanks! Look for the completed project to appear here this summer.
