Kicking off with a bang, the New Orleans Lager & Ale Brewing Company pop the top on their new Tap Room. This isn't just a tasting room for their current line-up of delicious libations, but the beginning of one-off brews like the "Girl Stout Cookie". That is their Irish Channel Stout rum barrel aged with cacao nibs and peppermint. They are also bringing in food trucks every night of the week from 6 pm - till. Pair that with great bands on the weekends and this will surely be a destination not to miss. Find out more at www.nolabrewing.com or www.facebook.com/nolabrewing
I stopped by Loa in the International house to meet with my favorite Baker in from Texas. Joe the Baker that is. While he has a few very cool pokers in the fire, I really want to highlight Loa and its space. Manager extrordinaire Alan Walter showed me around while continually caring for his watermelon simple syrup that sat simmering away on the counter top. He showcased their homemade syrups and bitters seen below. Of course, one cannot forget to mention his amazing space shuttle tie. Find out more about Loa at: www.ihhotel.com/bar.html
I love photographing liquids. I was shooting the new drink menu for a client, Peppers Pizzeria, and ended up at the wine section. Originally we shot a glass of wine with the bottle in the background. It looked good and I was getting tired, but I wanted to try a pour. The result of the fifth take is below. In food photography, like everything else, it is important to press on. You may end up with something you didn't expect.
