Happy hour started a little early today at 4:00 pm, at the Acadiana Realtor's Association, Gumbo Cook Off.There were lots of different kinds of gumbo, with 24 booths to choose from!! Of course, I tried the seafood gumbo first. When I tell you that this was some of the best seafood gumbo that I have ever eaten, then you'd better believe it, cher! Cest bon! Then, there was duck and sausage, shrimp and okra, chicken and sausage, crab and oyster.... etc. Are you starting to get the idea? Le bon mange'!
And what's a gumbo feast without a little Cajun/Zydeco music? Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie entertained the crowd and sent the dancers into Zydeco overdive! My camera was having issues, so I couldn't get a video, but here is a clip that I took, this summer, of Geno Delafose and French Rockin' Boogie, at Whiskey River, on the beautiful Atchaflaya Basin. Just to give you an idea of how this band can rock a crowd. Oh, the life of a Cajun, is oh, so good!!
