Can’t get to New Orleans? Or when you find yourself there, getting to the Museum of the American Cocktail suddenly falls lower on your list, after brunch at Mother’s, drinks at Cure or music just about anywhere? WWW to the rescue, as the Museum of the American Cocktail gets better and better about making versions of its terrific exhibits available online.
It almost goes without saying that any professional bartender or fan should be a member, but if you can’t join and aren’t able to make it to the museum or any of its events, it is worth checking in to the web site now and again, not just for the virtual exhibits, but to keep up with the MOTAC events held in various cities throughout the year. The museum is the culmination of a lot of work, but it’s only just begun, so lend a hand if you can. Most fun: the Albert Pick and Company barware catalog from another era, and Chris McMillian’s videos.
