NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA — Many bar owners awoke this morning to thrilling news, as the Tales of the Cocktail Foundation’s Spirited Award Regional Honorees were announced.  Social media took a break from the bleak to flood the feed with positivity, congratulation, and recognition.  We caught up with New York cocktail bar Employees Only for comment.

 

“EH?!” they said when we mentioned the news. “You’ll have to say that a little louder, and into my good ear!”

 

We swapped seats on the couch and tried again.

 

“Oh yes, oh yes, I saw that on The Facebooks just after 11:30 lunch,” they responded, in a stern shouting manner. “We’re obviously very excited to be included again, and congratulations to all the newcomers. Can you be a peach and find the TV Guide on my cellular phone?”
