A Little Lagniappe At The Louisiana Marathon Expo
Last year we closed down the Expo with with a second line by The Mike Foster Project. That was such fun, we’re bringing it back and moving it to Friday. Starting at 4:40 pm The Raising Cane’s River Center will open a bar for guests. At 5pm The Michael Foster Project will do a second line around the Expo encouraging all to participate. Following the second line, The Mike Foster Project will a perform a few songs. At 5:30 we will be hosting the “Meanwhile at Café Du Monde” show, the unique, festive monologue created by Peggy Sweeney-McDonald, that focuses on food and how our lives revolve around the satisfaction of it. The show features guest speakers who will share their life stories about food and how its entwined in their lives and memorable moments.
