    Re: LeNell's is closing, next Friday.

    I haven't heard from her since the store closed and I suspect this week she is in New Orleans at Tales.

    Does that involve the cocktail contest that Sazerac is sponsoring?
    A customer of mine qualified for it with a vodka cocktail he invented and is going down to New Orleans for the contest.
    I asked him what he came up with and he said I wouldn't be interested because it's made with vodka.
    But I did clue him in on some out of production bourbons and he is going "dusty hunting" while in N.O.

    Thank you all for your replies, i guess if she is thinking of opening a new store it will still be a while away. Maybe next trip then...

    It is no secret that I love that elixir of the gods, bourbon.

    Re: LeNell's is closing, next Friday.

    This may be old news, but I just checked in on Lenell's site and saw this:

    "I've decided to end the search for space in NYC and move to Mexico! Thank you for the years of fun in the shop. I'm excited about new adventures coming soon. Stay posted here for details as we develop the website for Casa Coctel, a new vacation hideaway in La Paz, Mexico. My man Demian and I just contracted on the purchase of a cozy lil home 5 blocks from the beach in Baja California Sur. Ready for a whole new B&B experience? Bourbon & Biscuits, that is. Email info@lenells.com to sign up for our Cocktail of the Month email list and to get news of the move. Yee haw!"

    Thanks, Chris. News to me, although I told her when she closed the store that she wouldn't come back and she didn't believe me. I thought she would stay in Europe but I can totally see Mexico. LeNell is an Alabama girl, after all, and even in Red Hook she had a chicken coop. She'll do great down there but, then, she'll do great anywhere.

    Wow, not me, not in Mexico, not now, not as an American in Mexico. That said, good luck to her.
