BBQ to BRAAI

So in keeping with my promise from my last post, I received this a press release about the Wines of South Africa's "from BBQ to BRAAI" 2014 US Road Series. Why is it cool? Well, basically, it follows the journey of South African Chef Hugo Uys through 10 domestic destinations to seek out local chefs, food personalities, farmers and musicians "with the goal of a 'cultural' barter between American and South African traditions," according to a press release I found when looking for more details on this.

Although here in New York, it's already made its Brooklyn pit stop in December, it's now headed to NOLA Saturday, February 22nd at Falstaff Beer Garden, located at 2600 Gravier Street, New Orleans, LA. Billed as a "large scale, low-cost ticketed consumer event," all proceeds from the affordable $20 per person event will actually benefit the New Orleans area's Habitat for Humanity. This is a great deal especially since you'll be able to taste wines, try South African dishes, and party to a soundtrack provided by conceptual artist and DJ Xander Ferreira. 

So sign up and call it dinner. It runs from 2-5 PM, prime time for snacking!

Have a good time, y'all!
