This new technology has given us a competitive advantage over every other bar on Bourbon Street and increased profits 20 percent. We feel lucky to have been chosen to participate,” said Brad Bohannan to the packed audience.   
The series was filmed last December at Spirits on Bourbon. “We have had some growing pains in learning the new technology but at the end it all paid off,” said Steve Smith. He continued, “Not only have we received the latest technology, but we have formed some great partnerships with innovative companies like ‘When I Work‘  

 which will last far beyond the show.”
Joe Woodard reminded the audience that the latest technology wasn’t just about convenience, but about inspiring us to push the envelope even further.  We at Spirits on Bourbon will certainly be taking his advise.

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!
