Downtown ‘Gumbo Crawl’ Coming January 19
If you are like me, you like gumbo. Seafood gumbo, chicken and sausage gumbo, okra gumbo - I like it all.
On January 19, I will be in a zombie-like comatose state as I meander through the streets and venues of Downtown Lafayette in search of my next bowl of gumbo. The Inaugural "Downtown Gumbo Crawl" will be taking place, and I will be on a mission!
From what I've read on the Facebook Event Page, 8-ounce samples will be served at each participating venue, beginning at Dat Dog (registration there is from 5:30 - 7 PM). At registration, you will get a wristband and badge that will get you in to each venue for your next bowl of gumbo (I wanted them to put a gumbo stain on everyone's shirt for entry, but my idea was shot down, citing "most people in Acadiana already have a shirt with a gumbo stain; we won't be able to know who really registered!).
Participating venues so far include: The Greenroom, Legends of Lafayette, The Wurst Biergarten, and The Jefferson Street Pub! The Downtown Gumbo Crawl After Perty will be above Dat Dog in the 2nd Floor Nightclub.
