The Roosevelt Hotel to Celebrate the Birthday of Famous Herbsaint Creator inside the Legendary Sazerac Bar

NEW ORLEANS, La. - April 12, 2012 - The Roosevelt Hotel, in collaboration with Herbsaint Brand, will host a birthday celebration to pay tribute to J. Marion Legendre, the creator of the anise-flavored liqueur.

The open-to-the-public event will be held inside the hotel's legendary Sazerac Bar, Saturday, May 12, from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. Guests can enjoy Herbsaint Frappes and a special birthday cake, as well as a chance to view historical photographs and artifacts from Herbsaint's storied past. Honorary guest Louise Legendre Ross, daughter of J. Marion Legendre, will also be present to share the unique story of her father and his work on Herbsaint.

Prior to the event, the adjoining Sazerac Restaurant will feature special Herbsaint-inspired lunch specials.

In addition to the celebration, Herbsaint and Offbeat Magazine will announce details of the first annual Herbsaint Melodic Mixology Competition, a cocktail competition for New Orleans area bartenders which requires them to create a unique Herbsaint cocktail inspired by their favorite New Orleans song.

Guests in attendance will receive a reproduction of the first in a series of famous Herbsaint advertising posters, a mainstay in bars and restaurants in New Orleans in the 1930s.

The Roosevelt New Orleans, A Waldorf Astoria Hotel, is located just steps from the historic French Quarter at 123 Baronne Street. For reservations and information, call (504) 648-1200 or visit www.therooseveltneworleans.com.
