WE LOVE EVENTS!!!!!!!!

**HOT OFF THE PRESS**

OUR EVENTS PAGE IS FULLY UPDATED AND READY TO GRACE A WEEKEND CALENDAR NEAR YOU!!!**

 
 

You might be saying to yourself right now "HELL YEAH" or even "Why is this such a big deal?"

To most people this might just be an average page update but to us and a select few, it's much more.

See, events are the life blood of our business. If we could, we would do an event everyday, everyplace, everywhere on Planet Earth. That would be a little hard but we could manage...right? Think of the jet lag - OUCH!

All joking aside we truly, unequivocally, 100% love, Love, LOVE interacting with our current patrons and new patrons alike. It gets us going. It is like a gift that keeps giving.

Everything from finding out where you went with our mixes to a trip you are planning, we relish in every minute of it and give you a cocktail while we talk.

Like our tagline says - "We go where you go" - No matter if it's camping, hiking, fishing, rocking, space, caravanning, horseback riding, or grandma's house, we want to know and we want to see pictures, either in person on social media, @leisuremanns YEAH!!

To keep this blog short as I could ramble all day, we have a jammed packed 2018 with events spanning everywhere from Lafayette to Baton Rouge and even New Orleans. So add a few to your calendar, come out, stop by, talk, and we promise there will always be enough cocktail mixes and samples to go around.

 
 

Cheers till our next event!

P.S. If you know of an event, big or small, near or far that you think we should attend, feel free to drop us a line on social media or via our contact page. Who knows, if everything works out you might even get a little finders fee!

ALL HAIL THE BIGGEST DAY OF THE YEAR...

HAPPY MONDAY!!!

LOL! Kidding! Happy New Year!! Now, let's get back to this Monday thing.

Mondays are great and not at all argued as the best day of the week. (Insert chuckle here!) Today, out of all Mondays is unique. This Monday, of 52, falls on the first day of the year. 

Seriously, dust off that gym membership (shout out to Southern Stone Indoor Climbing Gym), write down some resolutions, listen to some Gary Vaynerchuk, and gear up for whatever wild ride 2018 has in store for you.

Let's back track for a minute to last year at this time. January 1st, 2017 - If someone would have asked us where we thought our little cocktail mix company would go, our response would have probably been something snarky like, "The White House or Space." Though not out of the realm of possibilities, 2017 for us was a year of growing interactions.

Moreover so, experiencing our product through the eyes of its users i.e. interacting with you guys at events (Mid City Makers Market - THUMBS WAY UP!!) , festivals, parties, dinners, social media, and some random chance meetings at restaurants (you know who you are, LOL!). 

Interaction with our patrons is everything to us and living our brand to the fullest is key.

Keeping with the theme, 2018 is going to be packed with so much f&*king interaction that it will make your head spin. In the words of Will Ferrell - "Nobody knows what it means but it's provocative...It gets the people going!!

If you really want a preview, well... here goes, think -  Video Series - Podcast - Crowd Funding - NOLA Bourbon Fest 2018 - Mid City Makers Market 2018 Series - Parties - Contests - Liquor Reviews - New Flavors - Beefy Blogs - Calendar - More Photos of Matt - Trips - Adventure - Suspense - Leisure Lords - Merch - Interviews - Las Vegas - France - Pop's Poboys - Etc.

All Hail Monday - Cheers to 2018  -  Live Long and Prosper!

- Matt & Cliff

P.S. ALL TINS ARE STILL $10 - Through 11:59pm 1/1/2018

'Twas the Night before Cocktailmas

'Twas the night before Cocktailmas, and all through the house;

Not a cocktail was mixed not even an ounce;

The bottles were placed by the chimney with care

In hopes that St. Cocktailmas soon would be there,

 

The kiddos were nestled all snug in their beds

While visions of presents danced in their heads;

Ma in her PJs and I in my cap,

Had just settled in for a sober winter's nightcap,

 

When down in the den arose such a clatter,

I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.

Away to the stairs I flew in a flash

Throwing on my robe and combing out my stash

 

When, what to my eyes should appear,

But a tipsy old man, drunk, smiling from ear to ear

 

With glee in his laugh so lively with class

I knew in that moment it must be St. Cocktailmas

 

He spoke not words but went straight to his work.

Mixing, testing, tasting, till he turned with a jerk

Extending his hand in front of his face

He gave me a thumbs up and skedaddled my place

 

Stumbling to his sleigh, to his team he gave cheer

And away they flew, far from near

 

But I heard him exclaim, as he rode out of sight,

HAPPY COCKTAILMAS TO ALL, AND TO ALL, CHEERS TO THE NIGHT!!!

Bee's Knees?!?

Yea, you know that classic gin cocktail you have probably never had?

Time you two meet.

Callin' Baton Rouge

"Callin' Baton Rouge", for those who don't know,  is a 1993 smash single made famous by none other than the great, Chris Gaines. Wait... sorry, error on our part! We mean country superstar, Garth Brooks. LOL! 

Unlike Garth, who is brought back to Baton Rouge because of the lovely Samantha, we make the pilgrimage to our capital city each month because of an ever growing network of talented, creative, and enthusiastic makers. Every second Saturday you will find these makers gathering on the corner of Eugene and Govt. street at the MidCity Makers Market to show off their newest leather bag or their new jewelry line or in our case a new classic cocktail mix flavor.

Now pushing close to 50+ makers, our market is the must attend event for the MidCity area of Baton Rouge. Not only rejuvenating but boosting this area and its community as well.

You may be asking yourself "How can I get involved?" or more specifically "I'm a maker and how can I sell my product?". The answer is as simple as 5 easy steps. Honestly, there are more but we at Leisuremann's like to keep things simple. Capisce? 

1) Find a Market - For us Baton Rouge was a short drive and made the most sense. For you, start with a quick and thorough Google, Facebook, or Instagram search. Use key terms like, "market", "pop-up", "festival", "shop", "event" + "your area" to garner results. Finalize the search by reaching out via email or phone to your perspective event. Searching will pay off. Trust us!

2) Face to Face - It's true, people do buy product site unseen but our experience has shown that people also heavily buy you and your team. Live, love and enjoy the product you sell. Wear it, eat it, use it, flaunt it, post it, snap it, have your brand reflected in you.

3) Quality Product - Make sure your product is up to snuff. Natural ingredients, sustainable, handmade, unique, organic, playful, creative, are just a few traits off the top of our heads. People can see through the bull$h&% from a mile away. Don't skimp.

4) Be Yourself - Just be you. Don't be overly professional or pushy when selling your product or service. Keep it casual, keep it calm, keep it real, and for damn sure keep it business bohemian. Chillax baby!!

5) Transparent - Like a window, if someone doesn't like your product or has an issues with your service ask them why and how would they change it. Honesty is the best policy. Starting and ending each event with a positive customer centric attitude is key.

Not everyone is going to have a "Baton Rouge" but everyone sure can find a community of makers and like minded individuals they rally around and in our case have cocktails with on a monthly basis.
