Celebrate Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville'­s Birthday at Ri'chard's­ Cafe, a Day Late

What? You don't know who Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville was? Well, let me tell ya:


Pierre Le Moyne d'Iberville[1] (16 July 1661 – 9 July 1706 [probable])[2][3] was a soldier, ship captain, explorer, colonial administrator, knight of the order of Saint-Louis, adventurer, privateer, trader, and founder of the French colony of Louisiana of New France.[3]


Now we've got that straight, while Le Moyne's birthday was, technically, the 16th, Ri'chard's isn't open on Tuesday, so we're going a day late to dig on the Cajun cuisine at Ri'chard's.

This little gem is just a few minutes outside of downtown.

Get a look at the menu here.

    We forgot the cake! We must forgive ourselves that. But the food was great, the company was wonderful.

    Pulling a "Jodi", this is my busiest week at work so I will wait and see what the RSVP situation is on Wednesday and see if I am able to leave Franklin in time to make Whites Creek by 6:15. Would love to be there. Looks like a great crowd.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
