Cities raising glasses to help Big Easy
NEW YORK — The Big Apple will raise its glasses to the Big Easy – not for toasts, but to collect money for more than 80,000 hospitality workers from the hurricane-ravaged city.
In addition to New York, bars around the country also have promised to mix cocktails to help the Louisiana bartenders and hotel, casino and restaurant workers facing unemployment.
Four New York-based cocktail experts are spurring the “Save New Orleans Cocktail Hour” – a two-hour nationwide drinking session scheduled for Sept. 12 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
Each $10 drink – Big Easy classics like the sazerac, the ramos gin fizz, the Pimm’s cup, and even the hurricane – will be served with a set of free Mardi Gras beads.

Hey, I’ve got the beads if you’ve got the gas. Fire up the chariot, Major Dad. We’re goin’ out to dinner!

New York bartenders stepped forward first, with dozens of establishments from Soho’s tony new Pegu Club to the Central Park’s Tavern on the Green and the lively Havana Central, agreeing to participate in the fundraiser.
Organizers said the effort is spreading quickly and now includes the Sierra Gold tavern in Las Vegas, a half dozen businesses in Washington, D.C., and more in Arlington, Va., and Silver Spring, Md.
The New Orleans concoctions will also flow at watering holes in Cherry Hill, N.J., and various locales around Pennsylvania
