Come and enjoy great food like jambalaya, etouffee, red beans and rice, gumbo, fried catfish, bread pudding and many more traditional Louisiana dishes as local “chefs” and area restaurants will offer their favorite Cajun fare. Ready for some high-energy zydeco dancing? Then join the Birmingham Cajun Zydeco Association on the dance floor and laissez les bon temps rouler (let the good times roll)! A Taste of Louisiana is sponsored by the Greater Birmingham LSU Alumni Association. Tickets for the event can be purchased in advance (by Wednesday, October 26) through the website for $15. You can also mail a check and list of attendee names to: Kenny Haynes, 1600 Woodmere Drive, Birmingham, AL 35226.
