NOLA Wenches Shore Leave weekend takes over Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay

The Shore Leave Weekends theme was Neverland in NOLA! It was four day event that provided a vacation for pirates and like-minded folks. People came with a great attitude and a smile! The first night they held a Meet-and-Greet at Spirits on Bourbon.  

 the event included games, prizes, some great jokes…and some not so great jokes! This event brought pirates from everywhere together, sharing stories of the past year. 

 The next few days included hitting the streets of Bourbon and hitting the Mississippi on a river boat cruise on the Natchez. 

 On Sunday they had a farewell crawl at Turtle Bay on Decatur with plenty of libations flowing and some great crawfish.  

  We also got to see some fellow Pirates, Ernie Martelli and Lisa Gormal, tie the knot! 

 We can’t wait for next year to see our Pirate friends again at Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay! Ahoy Me Matey! 



Spirits on Bourbon attended Reality Rally for the second year growing the total raised for Breast Cancer to over $15,000

Reality Rally was a huge success, with over 100 Reality TV Stars representing over 30 shows!  Spirits on Bourbon owners Steve Smith and Brad Bohannan attended and raised over $9000 this year and over $15,000 for a two year total for Michelle’s Place.  Michelle’s Place is a Temecula based non-profit that provides support for breast cancer survivors and their families.

The weekend started with a red carpet event and casino night with reality stars vying to win prizes and all proceeds going Michelle’s Place. The second day included an Amazing Race Style Competition in which The Stars paired up with fans.  Brad Bohannan’s team TaTa Sister Hood finished 3rd   place while Steve’s team, Blame it on the Bankers, was 1st to the bar after some strategic pictures of staged activity!  Brad Bohannan said, “The team took a chance with me with all the young and in shape stars to choose from!  I wanted to improve from a 16th place finish last year and I’m pretty happy with finishing 3rd!  Still, I feel like we learned some thing’s to get us in the 1st place finish next year.”   Steve Smith said, “I think my team had a blast and couldn’t of ask for a better team.   We may not of finished but I think we finished first in having fun.”    Later on in the day they had an Autograph session where fans could meet and mingle with their favorites Reality Stars.

Spirits On Bourbon was honored to Participate in Reality Rally 2015, and hope to come back next year raising even more money for Michelle’s Place.
