The Roosevelt New Orleans will pay tribute to its colorful past through the re-creation of the historic “Storming’ of the Sazerac” on Friday, Sept. 28, at 3 p.m. inside the hotel’s legendary Sazerac Bar. The event commemorates the 63rd anniversary of the first occasion when women, normally admitted only on Mardi Gras, began to receive equal status year-round at this world-famous bar.
Female guests would join their male counterparts anytime for the Sazerac cocktail made popular by the bar, the Ramos Gin Fizz that was a favorite of Gov. Huey Long, and other concoctions. To properly honor the original Storming’ of the Sazerac, which took place in 1949, guests are encouraged to wear late-1940s attire and partake in a “vintage glamour” costume contest with local celebrity judges. The winner will receive a one-night stay at The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The event will also include hourly drawings for special giveaways beginning at 3:30 p.m.
