Cafe Adelaide’s Lu Brow to Receive Scholarship Award
NEW ORLEANS – September 1, 2006: The Museum of the American Cocktail and the New Orleans Culinary and Preservation Society, in conjunction with Beverage Alcohol Resource, are pleased to announce that a B.A.R. Scholarship will be awarded to Lu Brow, the beverage manager of Café Adelaide in New Orleans. She will travel to New York City this September to attend a five-day program given by Beverage Alcohol Resource, a training program that offers comprehensive certification courses in advanced studies of distilled spirits and mixology.
The Museum of the American Cocktail and Tales of the Cocktail are thrilled to be awarding a B.A.R. Scholarship to Ms. Brow. This is especially important at a time when the hospitality and tourism industries in New Orleans are still reeling from the impact of Hurricane Katrina. “We hope to award at least one scholarship a year to rising stars in the beverage industry”, said Ann Rogers, Founder of the annual Tales of the Cocktail event in New Orleans.
