Now, We Are Two

Drinking Time in New Orleans

Drinking Time in New Orleans

It’s no fun to drink alone. Sometimes, of course, a drink demands itself when company isn’t an option. But, for the vast majority of tippling to be done, a valued brother-in-arms  — one who not only buys the occasional round but who also reminds you of who you are in those moments where your facilities escape you — is an invaluable asset.

Lawrence Henry Theriot II — Lars to his friends — is such a compatriot. With just enough tinge of Energizer Bunny, Lars is ready for pretty much anything, anytime. So, when it came time to expand the 12 Bottle role call and reach, Lars was the natural first choice. A shameless promoter of the fair city of New Orleans, Lars will be our Virgil in The Big Easy, unveiling for us the back alleyways and history of the unquestionable Kingdom of the Cocktail.

So, sit back, relax, and raise your glasses. The next round is on Lars.

  1. Thanks for the Intro my friend… happy to be here. Oh and that picture you wanted, I’ll have it for you this evening.

  2. And just to prove my New Orleans bonafides… the photo that accompanies this post (which I did not take) is of Pirates Alley, on the left side of the Cathedral in Jackson Square (if you’re facing the front of the Church itself). The Sun-shaped sign dead center advertises a bar named after Pirate’s Alley and you can’t really see it in this photo but there is a smaller sign hanging just beneath it which is a forgery of the sign which hangs outside The olde Absinthe House.

  3. Looking forward to your contributions, Laaz. For once my bar can produce Big Easy cocktails that don’t originate from Pat O’Briens hurricane mix.

  4. Pirates Alley smells like pee…because people pee there…after drinking…during Mardi Gras…when no one was looking…on the wall of St. Louis Cathedral…I’m not proud of it.

  5. Take excepton. The Alley smells like lemon since FQ cleanup was taken over by Sidney David Torres (SDT).

  6. I agree with lhtheriot. SDT has worked wonders for the Quarter. I actually don’t mind being out and about in the FQ before 10AM anymore… which is good because the best croissants at the Croissant D’or are all gone by 10AM.
