There are some great food events coming up soon in our fair city! Here are some you don't want to miss:
First up, Hogs for the Cause. This yearly fundraiser for pediatric brain cancer has been extended to include Friday evening, and has great music all day, plus a bbq cook-off. Tickets are $5 and the event is in City Park.
March 23-24, The Roadfood Festival in the French Market brings you famous "road food" from around the country. You can get your fill of ribs, tamales, cheese dip, and strawberry shortcake, with no entry fee! You might want to wear your elastic waist pants, though.
And if you're looking for a more organized event, try out Dishcrawl. The first New Orleans Dishcrawl event is set for Tuesday, March 26, and will take place in the Carrollton neighborhood, winding its way through (secret) restaurants in search of some of the neighborhood's best flavors. Tickets for March 26 are sold out, but the Irish Channel Dishcrawl, set for April 10, still has some available. Happy festing!
