This week, we all got to the polls and now we can ALL celebrate the end of political ad season. Perhaps one of the more talked about snafus in Louisiana for election day was the lack of stickers. We were just as shocked as you. But we saw creative substitutes, and some businesses offered a free beer for election day by just taking you at your word. But we’ve had our fill of politics for the week, and our stomachs are empty and ready to be filled with ballots of boudin, po-boys and unlimited draaanks. Get your eating pants ready because you’ll need the stretchy comfort to fully enjoy the weekend ahead.
So, you didn’t get a sticker when you hit the polls. Neither did we. Le sigh. All the chatter on social media had the Secretary of State’s office address the lack of our Blue Dog voting stickers. The reason? It always comes down to money, and stickers didn’t make the budget.
Because you’re our frands, we’re looking to have you join us for our Friendsgiving event this weekend. Chef Syrena Johnson and Chef Theaudric Davis are cookin’ up an event with us at the Treme Market Branch on Saturday. Food, music and cocktails – all the fixins of a delicious evening. Seats are limited and it’s reservations only – so jump in and get your spot. Just make sure you have those stretchy pants ready when you get back home.
Speaking Of Those Stretchy Pants
You’ll need those comfy cotton sweats again because the Oak Street Po-Boy Fest is back with a smorgasbord of po-boys. There’s lobster po-boy, Godfather po-boy, creole sausage po-boy, po-boy lager – you get the idea. We’re all looking forward to those afternoon food naps.
Mark The Occasion
