Louisiana Daily Photo: Chris “Action” Jackson

Louisiana Daily Photo via rl reeves jr

When I had a blowout going 70 mph near Des Allemands I thought I was going to die. Thankfully, I wrestled control of the car, guided it off the road and within an hour Schriever Auto Parts had sent Chris “Action” Jackson to my rescue.

Jackson was a ball of fire and more than happy to commiserate on how our old ladies are always breaking our balls over one thing or another.

Bryant Boudoin was sentenced to life in prison for the crime.

I’m eating 500 po boys across the state of Louisiana. I recently visited Betsy McDaniel’s restaurant (still in operation by her heirs) and filed this report.

2017 Winchester Kentucky Beer Cheese Festival Winners

Jean Bell is the queen of Kentucky beer cheese

This past weekend, the 9th edition of the Winchester Beer Cheese Festival took place in the small central Kentucky town.

I was not able to attend.

I was hoping for a first place win for Jean Bell of Hall’s On The River as the ol’ gal has put 50 years of her life into the making of the quintessential Kentucky foodstuff. Sadly, she did not.

Apparently there was a landrush on the $5 wristbands that allowed you access to Beer Cheese Boulevard. Organizers had to think quick and break into boxes from last year’s event to use year-old bands so that patrons could freely graze.

Here’s a list of the 2017 Winchester Kentucky Beer Cheese Festival Winners:

—First place: Kentucky Beer Cheese

—Second place: River Rat Beer Cheese

—Third place: Full Circle Market

—People’s choice: River Rat Beer Cheese

—Best amateur: Ben Goff

Hope to see y’all out there in 2018.
