New Orleans 100 Mixer Location Announced

Not even Old New Orleans Rum knew where the New Orleans 100 Mixer would be held till today even though we're serving our famous Cajun Tea to the local innovators, social entrepreneurs and provocateurs bringing about positive change in a city that has basked in complacency for far too long.

Trumpet Group, a Petri dish for forward-thinking, will be hosting the New Orleans 100 Mixer and Old New Orleans Rum will be serving up their Cajun Tea along with other hospitable spirit handlers. So come toast the New Orleans 100 with us and over 300 of your soon-to-be closest friends, that is, if you're looking to join the movement. If not, get left behind.

Trumpet is located at
2803 St. Philip St.
New Orleans, LA 70119

Party's from 6 to 8, with Rebirth doing it up for the after party. Ah yeah.

Till the next round,

Old New Orleans Rum Distillery To Be Featured On ESPN’s Monday Night Football

Old New Orleans Rum & Saints Football: Is Heaven Better Than This?

Any fan of Old New Orleans Rum who has yet to go on the Distillery Tour or has been on it and would like to revel in the memories should be watching the New Orleans Saints vs Minnesota Vikings game on ESPN's Monday Night Football at 7pm ( or earlier if you are die-hard fan, which you are)!

For some of ya'll, I'm not twisting any arms but for all of our non-local fans keep the Channel Return button on the Saints game to catch a glimpse of the inner workings of the Old New Orleans Rum Distillery with Ben Gersh, our general manager and Chris Sule, our head distiller and creator of the ONO Cajun Spice Rum.

After you've seen the glory that is the Old New Olreans Rum Distillery, shoot us an email, comment, tweet, wall post, kudos, whatever letting us know that you saw it with some love for your favorite Rum!

Anxiously Awaiting Monday Night,

What Alternative (Rock) Could Compare For This Weekend?

See, I understand what Rock is right... Indie?.. Hmmm... Let's ponder this. I know Indiana Jones was also called Indie in a few high action scenes by his comrades or companion. "Indie" could relate to Indians, I know Indians used rocks for various reasons; to create dyes or hold down their teepees... {perusing the Web as I type}.

Aah. Now I get it. Independent right?! K whatever it means, the NOLA Indie Rock Fest is a 3 day "not-for-the-faint-of-heart, hear-it-first-before-you-gotta-pay-a-fify, rock your socks off-kind of fest starting tonight that is definitely worth the minor Hamilton you gotta lay down for an all-weekend pass.

The line-up includes Theresa Andersson, The City Life, Antenna Inn, Rotary Downs, Glasgow!, Big Rock Candy Mountain, The Zydepunks, and other ridiculously awesome peeps, both local and a-sorta far.
