Journalists have long been famous for keeping bars in business, and now the bars of the Ralph Brennan Restaurant Group (www.neworleans-food.com) in New Orleans are returning the favor. Ever since the 175-year-old Times-Picayune announced it will trim its printed edition back to three days a week beginning this fall, New Orleanians have been wringing their hands. The Brennan Group decided to dedicate its ''Cocktails for a Cause'' program to keeping the reporters and editors of the Times-Picayune working on “the stories that matter most to New Orleanians.” Starting June 8 and for the foreseeable future, each of the five bars will feature a Save the Picayune cocktail. Twenty percent of the proceeds will go into a fund for adversely impacted Times-Picayune employees. For example, the café b (pictured above) will serve the “Stick to 7 (Days),” a drink of Stoli Sticki vodka, fresh lemon juice, and honey syrup. Help keep a great newspaper afloat? We can drink to that.
