You can't get more basic than this, right? It's hot and sweaty and that's about all there is mid-summer in New Orleans, so we need a place that doesn't ask much of us beyond being friendly and not too smelly.
*** It is very important for us to have accurate numbers for food events, so please be aware of your RSVP. As a courtesy to your organizers and the other guests, if you find out that you will not be attending even as late as the afternoon of the dinner, please update your RSVP, so we will be as close to the actual number as possible. Thanks for your cooperation!
