News you can booze
Starting today, all five of restaurateur Ralph Brennan's New Orleans restaurants will begin serving a special "Save the Picayune" cocktail, reports The Times-Picayune. The drinks are part of the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group's Cocktail for a Cause program. It was conceived in response to last month's announcement that The Times-Picayune will cease operating as a daily newspaper this fall, printing instead on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday of each week while shifting to a smaller, digitally focused news operation. And the drinks will be offered every day, not just three days a week. Brennan's group says its restaurants are pledging their support for "keeping The Times-Picayune in our collective hands seven days a week. RBRG aims to keep the award-winning staff working and reporting on the stories that matter most to New Orleanians, so 20 percent from each of the cocktail's proceeds will benefit adversely impacted The Times-Picayune employees."
