TotC 2014: Hurricanes, Hand Grenades & Shark Attack

For the 1st time in years, I actually attended a session and I sure picked the right one.

There were 4 speakers:

  • Richard Campanella on Bourbon Street
  • Wayne Curtis on Hurricanes
  • Brett Martin on Hand Grenades
  • Rien Fertel on Shark Attacks

I was waiting to post this since I hoped to have a video link from NOLA.com…but the audio is non-existent which is sad.  (Listen for your self)

We were given samples of the three drinks, although because of trademark reason we were technically drinking a bomb not a hand grenade. And the speakers were enthusiastic about their topics.
