  1. I need to be refreshed on how the Tales of the Cocktail works. It has a few years since we came.
    There are special rooms to taste test which require a special braclet.Then there were a few rooms open to all persons to taste test. Is that still how it works?
    Please give me the details of which liquors/wines that will be taste tested etc.
    Myself and my friends are looking forward to the event.

  2. Dear Ms. Troncoso,

  4. We are staying at your hotel Sunday evening. Will we be able to purchase the 2011 tales of the cocktail commerative poster showcasing the Carousel Bar while there?
