Beer Tasting for Nathanial Zimet
A local chef, Nathanial Zimet, was shot three times on Sunday and is currently in the hospital. It appears that thankfully he will recover but because of the cost of health care these days his restaurant, Boucherie, has asked for people to make donations in order to help with the costs.
If you've ever been to Boucherie you know that the food is fantastic as is the beer selection. The Brooklyn beer dinner that was held in New Orleans was held at Boucherie and was amazing. Nathanial is an outstanding chef, lover of good beer and is one of our own. I think we as the beer community must come together and put on one of our best tastings ever with all proceeds going to help Nathanial.
This tasting is in its infancy and I need some ideas. I'm hoping that those readers that live out of town can help out by donating beer to this great cause. If you're interested please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will give you my address. Those of you that live here in town be prepared. We need to open up our beer fridges and crack open some amazing beers. If you are a local brewery or restaurant reading this perhaps you'd be willing to donate some food or even brew a special beer for this event. Anything could help. Just let me know. Let's come together and help out Nathanial.
Thanks for listening and let's show New Orleans how the beer community helps their own.
