“From BBQ to Braai" Wines of South Africa US Road Series – Benefit

Hi Travel Enthusiasts! 

See below for more details about this upcoming event that we thought you might be interested in attending as a group. Dawn will not be in town, so Satyajit has volunteered to organize this group event. Please purchase your own ticket (click here for ticket info), RSVP to this event page, and contact Satyajit for more details on when and where to meet up.

Kick off the Mardi Gras celebrations early with a taste of South Africa! 

Event details:
The Wines of South Africa (, WOSA) "From BBQ to Braai" tour, which was created to promote a better understanding of South African culture through wine, food and music, will kick off the 2014 national tour in New Orleans. WOSA has partnered with New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) to help set the stage for a southern cultural exchange in the form of a South African inspired BBQ. WOSA will donate all proceeds from the event to NOAHH.

We will taste some FAB wines complimented by a full South-African menu from Chef Hugo Uys and live DJ performance from Xander Ferreira. 

The event will run from 2:00pm - 5:00pm on Saturday, February 22nd at Falstaff Beer Garden, 2600 Gravier Street, New Orleans, LA.

Price is $20 per person. All proceeds to benefit New Orleans Habitat for Humanity, such a great cause! Tickets are available at

    It was a lot of fun with many interesting people. The food and wine selection was well chosen with an added excellent location. The rooftop was really cool. Look forward to the next one!

    This sounds great. Wish I could come, but too much going on with guests and Carnival. Hope to meet y'all after Mardi Gras!
