New Scholarship Honors New Orleans Bartending Legend
The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society and Crescent City School of Bartending have partnered to create a bartending scholarship in honor of Flo Woodard, the longtime bartender at the Court of Two Sisters. The Flo Woodward Memorial Bartending Scholarship will annually select a bartending professional to attend the Bartending/Beverage Management Course, which is a 12-week program taught by Daniel Victory at the Crescent City School of Bartending in New Orleans and valued at $3000.00.
Ms. Flo was an award-winning bartender and placed at the Tales of the Cocktail official cocktail competition in 2007 with her Crescent City Cooler, which is still on the menu at the Court of Two Sisters. But Ms. Flo was revered by customers for more than what she put in their glass. Her affable personality and zest for sharing stories brought scores of loyal bar patrons including actor, director, producer and New Orleans native, Tyler Perry who would always stop by for a drink when in town.
The New Orleans Culinary and Cultural Preservation Society will begin taking applications for the Flo Woodward Memorial Bartending Scholarship shortly. Those interested should contact
