The Very Bad Santa Festivities Take Over The French Quarter

If you were wandering the French quarter this weekend, you might’ve seen some Santa’s that looked like they should be on the naughty list! Turtle Bay and Spirits on Bourbon were honored to be included in the very bad Santa Festivities. “Knowing it’s the oldest Santa pub crawl in the French quarter, we feel honored to be included. I have enjoyed watching it grow every year,” said Brad Bohannan. The Bad Santa’s enjoyed a stop at Turtle Bay with shot specials such as the Pineapple Upside Down shot for only a dollar, two dollar fireball, and two dollar domestic beers. The crowd overflowed Decatur Street with a sea of red!! 
The party eventually made its way to Spirits on Bourbon where they enjoyed dollar Apple Pie shots. “I thought I was prepared for all the Santa’s but the Santa’s were taking the shots as fast as I could put them out,” Steve Smith laughed!  
The Shot Chair was loaded up as they were giving out two dollar fireball shots! If the Santa’s were not on the naughty list, then they were after the Shot Chair!  
Turtle Bay and Spirits on Bourbon are already looking forward to the very bad Santa crawl next year!

Arkansas State And Louisiana Tech Clash in 15th Annual R&L Carrier New Orleans Bowl

Arkansas State University and Louisiana Tech have both accepted invitations to compete against one another in the 15th Annual R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl.  Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay are excited about the match up. We hope to see a great game and show the fans a great time in New Orleans. 
The game will take place on Saturday, Dec. 19 at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome and will kick off at 8:00 p.m. We hope to see the football fans before kick off and after at Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay

                    Come get a Barber Beer



Ole Miss Rebels and Oklahoma State CowboysSquare off in the Sugar Bowl

 Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay look forward to another great Sugar Bowl. We are excited to have some great teams from the SEC in big 12. We look forward to meeting their fans and making them fans of bourbon Spirits on Bourbon and Turtle Bay.   


Ole Miss Rebels (9-3, 6-2 in SEC)
Ole Miss was one last-second, fluky play away from beating Arkansas and earning a trip to the SEC Championship Game, thanks to its win over Alabama early in the year. Despite the strange blowout losses to Memphis and Florida, the Rebels had an impressive year with wins over LSU and Texas A&M, plus wins on the road against both Alabama and Auburn to become Alabama state champs.
The Ole Miss offense has been very impressive under new quarterback Chad Kelly. Even without quarterback Bo Wallace, the offense didn’t miss a beat, putting up at least 38 points in each of its final three games. The defense struggled at times, but it still has hard hitters in the front seven.
Most importantly, the Rebels avoided a November collapse like last season. Now, can they avoid a bowl collapse after losing 42-3 to TCU in last year’s Peach Bowl?

Take a look at Spirits on Bourbons New Menu Items 
 Oklahoma State Cowboys (10-2, 7-2 in Big 12)
After a 10-0 start, Oklahoma State was dreaming of winning the Big 12 and making the College Football Playoff, but due to a back-loaded schedule, the Cowboys saved their two toughest games for last against Baylor and Oklahoma. A win over TCU had Oklahoma State feeling good, but the Cowboys were blown out by both the Bears and the Sooners, ending their chance to make the Playoff.
However, this has still been a great season for OSU, with a resurgent offense that put up 49 points on TCU and 70 on Texas Tech. The dual-QB system of Mason Rudolph and J.W. Walsh worked well, and it meant the Cowboys were never out of a game.

                   Turtle Bay Specialty Pizzas   
The defense was more suspect. Oklahoma State played a lot of close games against inferior teams like€” Texas, Kansas State and Iowa State, to name a few, and that was partly due to the defense. The defense was particularly exposed against Baylor, with the Bears mostly playing a third-string quarterback, and Oklahoma. Can it get back to respectability to complement the offense in a bowl game.
