As you probably know, Tales of the Cocktail is one of, if not the, biggest and most important cocktail conferences in the world. Tales is going through a transition. After much controversy, which we wont rehash, but reported on extensively first in episode #203, Tales is in the process of being reorganized as the Tunermans are selling their shares.
This week we will talk to the two gentlemen that are in the process of purchasing those shares and will take over management, Gary Soloman and Neal Bodenheimer. We’ll hear about their plans for Tales.

We are going to have to figure out how to pay for the trip down to Tales this year…you know I did some work for them for 3 years, recording seminars and producing another podcast for the Tales 365 members, but our arrangement has come to an end. I always get great content for the show at Tales – last year I think we got 4 show’s worth of great material.
