A big iron pot of cracklins at 2018 Gheens Bon Mange Festival

When Mr Bill died it didn’t take long for his family to bulldoze his old watering hole, Bill’s Place. Last year at Gheens Bon Mange the destruction of the only bar in town was a hot topic. This year tempers had settled, and folks were content to dance to oldies goldies, eat cracklins and drink cold tumblers of Rougaroux punch. Continue reading
