For early Friday fun...it's Frappe Fridays at Arnaud's (813 Bienville)....Each Frappe Friday will include Historical overview of J.M. Lengendre with Herbsaint memorabilia and artifacts on display, hands on making of a Herbsaint frappe by each person, an exclusive tasting of the new Herbsaint Original, a hand crafted French Creole inspired meal, and all attendees will receive a Herbsaint Frappe completion certificate for framing with Herbsaint recipes, PLUS a few surprises! The fun goes from 11:30am to 1:30pm. Tickets are $35 per person, including tax and tip. To RSVP, call (504) 523-5433 or email Katy@Arnauds.com ...it's a great event!!
It's a beer lover's dream.....and it's well worth the money (and it's for a great cause)! Join WYES and NOLA Brewing (3001 Tchoupitoulas) to enjoy a relaxed evening of beer tasting with a limited number of guests during the WYES Private Beer Sampling. In honor of the craft of American and European brewers, this event will feature the hardest to find craft brewed beers, specially made cask and home brewed beers, as well as special one-off beers from local breweries. Guests will be able to talk one-on-one with brewers, home brewers, and other beer industry members, as well as talk amongst fellow beer connoisseurs. Tasting tickets are $50 which also includes lip-smacking food by Crescent Pie and Sausage. Also, the President and staff of NOLA Brewing will be available to meet and greet, as well as answer any questions guests may have. Tickets to Friday's event can only be purchased by calling (504) 486-5511.
