Tales of the Cocktail has been shaking up the international cocktail scene since 2002. We'll speak with founder Ann Tuennerman for a retrospective of the annual event, and find out her plans for the future.

Then, we'll continue our spirited discussion by talking with the King of Cocktails, Dale Degroff. Dale outlines his involvement in the cocktail scene and discusses its return to popularity in the past decade.

Finally, we'll hear about a new collaboration between the Leidenheimer Baking Company and Tableau, a new restaurant in the French Quarter.
