Folks there is so much news out there besides what we’re focusing on in detail I thought a post with links to what I am reading may help our many out of area readers get a flavor for what is really happening on the ground.
So while it looks as though we’ll be without fresh local crabs for a while I highly recommend the Crab Fest being held this weekend on the grounds of Our Lady of the Gulf Church in Bay St Louis. A crowd favorite is the Crab Roule’ booth which is staffed by local luminaries that never forget their ties to the ordinary people in their community. For those not initiated in the ways of the coast, Crab Roule’ is the crustacean version of the chicken drop sans “the drop” and is great fun. If you in the City or off the coast come on over because there is lots of great food, art booths, rides for the kids, live music etc. and is very family friendly (which on the coast means the adults can eat seafood and imbibe adult beverages while the kids have a blast).
