Read my full report on Hansen’s Sno Bliz
This photo was taken in September of 2010 three months after a May fire that seriously damaged the old structure that houses Verti Marte. I used to love to eat there but haven’t visited in a couple years. There are too many unexplored po boy parlors out there and even old favorites are going wanting nowadays.
Entry is free.
The event is Saturday October 22nd 2016
You can purchase eight sample tickets for $5
They haven’t released the line-up of boudinieres who will be competing and/or showcasing their charcuterie at the event but we expect T-Jim’s out of Cottonport, Best Stop out of Scott, Johnson’s Boucaniere out of Lafayette, T-Boys out of Mamou and a dozen or so other top boudin parlors from across the state.
Hope to see y’all out at the park.

MILA. Made in Louisiana was a restaurant from the husband wife team of Slade and Allison Rushing. For $20 you got a three course luncheon that stands as one of the best deals New Orleans has ever offered.
Hubig’s is gone but not forgotten. I took this photo on September 15th 2011.
