This was New Orleans, where people go to <em>laissez les bons temps rouler.</em> But two in our group weren’t quite 21, so we had to find another place to let our good times roll.&nbsp;</p> Tue, 22 Jul 2014 14:30:07 +0000 Amy Rogers 55399 at http://wfae.org Finding Flammkuchen In New Orleans A Covered Dish: Less Can Be More http://wfae.org/post/covered-dish-less-can-be-more <p>Some call them potlucks or potlatches.

You go in knowing you must sample every dish and will probably go back for seconds, or at least dessert. No one’s dish should go unsampled. You leave with a loosened belt buckle and happy memories. Good food, laughter, a celebration of friendship.</p><p> Mon, 14 Jul 2014 15:03:09 +0000 Tamra Wilson 54870 at http://wfae.org A Covered Dish: Less Can Be More World Cup Cocktails http://wfae.org/post/world-cup-cocktails <p>Now that we have finally reached the semi-finals of the World Cup, the finalists will be determined this week, and we should all be prepared to plan our drinking accordingly.
