It seems like the second the weather warms up we all get antsy to be
outside. Can you think of anything better than you and your sweetheart
sipping an ice cold Abita Amber at a local Cajun Music Festival? The
great thing is that you don’t have to live in Louisiana to attend such
an event. Like I’ve been telling people for years, not only is
Louisiana a geographical location, but “Louisiana is a state of mind”
as well.

If can’t find an event near you, why not create your own? This
Father’s Day, we are recreating the French Quarter, right in our own
back yard. All of the Dads in the family will be treated to home
cooked Cajun favorites and lots of upbeat Zydeco music.

Cajun Father’s Day Menu
From Cajun Grilled Tri Tip to Bananas Foster, this special menu is
sure to please any Father on his special day. For a Father’s Day
brunch, try Pain Perdu with fresh fruit. Ideas for creating your own
little French Quarter courtyard are included.
