A Tales Apperitif in Houston – Anvil Bar & Refuge

Most people who go to Tales of the Cocktail know that nearly a week of excess and debauchery with your fellow spirits minded and swilling friends is plenty of fun for anyone.  I am apparently not that smart.  I decided that two days before I went in to New Orleans for Tales 2010 I would have the brilliant idea of going to Houston and see some friends and visit Anvil Bar & Refuge.  After all, what better way to get ready for all that excess than with a few extra nights of excess?

I had been wanting to visit Anvil ever since my friend Chuck Taggart waxed poetic about it.  I then got to meet one of the owners and the mastermind behind the bar Bobby Heugel and one of his extraordinary bartenders Mindy Kucan.  That pretty much sealed the deal, I had to go as soon as possible.  As I sat there one evening booking my travel plans for Tales I realized that I would have to change airplanes in Houston anyways.  It seemed like the perfect opportunity for an extra drink or 20, off to Houston I went.
