Farm to Fork Fondo

Farm to Fork Foundation is an organized bicycle ride where riders get to choose the distance best for them and stop for chef-prepared bites at farms along the way. Its mission is to highlight and support the symbiotic relationship between cyclists, farmers, and beautiful landscapes. The rides promote physical activity in a fun and supportive environment, create achievable challenges for people of all ages and abilities, and result in social good.

The Farm to Fork Fondo rides are held throughout the spring, summer, and fall in eight locations throughout the country. Belle Grove is delighted to warmly welcome them back for 2019.

Cha Wa – NOLA-ed Up Shrimp Boil

They’re back, and ready for another funky good time here at Sweet NOLA’s. Join us July 23rd for Cha Wa, delivering the sounds and aesthetics of the Mardi Gras Indians with the funk infused show that is guaranteed to have you funked up by the end of the night.

Cha Wa’s debut, “Funk N Feathers”, explored contemporary riffs on the traditional music Boudreaux grew up singing along side his grandfather, Big Chief Monk Boudreaux, in the Golden Eagles Mardi Gras Indian tribe. Now “Spyboy” ups the ante by digging deeper into the sound of New Orleans culture and giving it a modern twist. The disc’s largely orginal material takes advantage of the band’s new horn section to highlight the musicians’ personal ties to the street music of their hometown. “We wanted to take the roots of what we love about New Orleans brass band music and Mardi Gras Indian music and then voice it in our own way,” says the group’s drummer and founder, Joe Gelini.

Madame Cheryl will be cooking up shrimp with all the fixin’s for this low country boil. Event rail or shine. Wear those dancing shoes and be prepared to cut some rugs, that is if you can still move after stuffing your face with handfuls of delicious shrimp.

Show 6pm to ??
All you can eat $49.95
