National shot-and-a-beer week

Tales of the Cocktail begins in New Orleans this Wednesday. It's a terrible week to go cocktailing anywhere else since all the best bartenders will be drinking hard in the Big Easy. Do yourself a favor and don't order anything more complicated than shots and chasers until Wednesday of next week when everyone's hangover wears off.

That said, in San Francisco Jon Gasparini will be holding down the fort at Rye, Jeff Hollinger (who proved his party credentials at last year's Tales) will stay in town working at Absinthe this year, and Marco Dionysos will be here getting Clock Bar up and running. Share a drink and commiserate with these poor fellows keeping SF running while we're running ragged.

Anyone else not going and want to encourage business? Post in the comments.
