Cajun '80s Halloween invades New Orleans
New Orleans is a town that nobody really needs an excuse to visit. Before the recession hit, I used to visit NOLA yearly for two reasons: ACME Oyster House and three-for-one drinks (and free souvenir plastic cups) at the Bourbon Blues Club. It's been about three years since my last visit -- and my lone remaining BBC cup is looking mighty faded.
So perhaps it's a wise idea to circle Oct. 20 on the calendar, because that's Cajun '80s Halloween in New Orleans. According to the official Facebook page, it features A Flock of Seagulls, When in Rome UK and The Motels. Not too shabby.
If I don't make it, someone save me a cup?
