Cocktails on Film, Construction Delays at Whole Foods

WAREHOUSE DISTRICT?Cocktails are coming to the big screen. Hey Bartender, a documentary produced by 4th Row Films in partnership with William Grant & Sons, will be screened next Monday, Oct. 14, at 8:15 pm in the Contemporary Arts Center as part of the New Orleans Film Festival. The film purports to celebrate "the renaissance of the bartender with the resurgence of craft cocktail culture." Tickets are $10, and if you get there early, you can enjoy the obligatory pre-movie cocktail reception at 7:15 pm. [Eaterwire]

TBA?Al Fresceaux's floating dinner series returns after a brief hiatus on Oct. 19 with a five-course meal called "Nostalgia through Comfort Foods."

Dinner is $75 per person, with a reduced price for non-drinkers. [Eaterwire]

CITY PARK?The 2013 Louisiana Seafood Festival is poised to infiltrate City Park this weekend, and organizers are saying neither rain nor scorching sun will affect the schedule of events. The festival, which runs from Friday Oct. 11 to Sunday Oct. 13 and is FREE (!), has been quite peripatetic in recent years, showing up at Woldenberg Park in 2012 and in Lafayette Square in 2011.
