Friday gets all indigenous in downtown Lafayette as Bach Lunch features the two steps and waltzes of popular female-centric Cajun band BonSoir, Catin and Downtown Alive! goes “et toi” on our ass with Grammy-nominated zydeco artists Corey Ledet & His Zydeco Band. Praise God and pass the chaudin!
Bach Lunch begins at noon at Parc Sans Souci. Lunches — $6 for general public, $5 for Lafayette Science Museum members — will be provided by Bailey’s Seafood & Grill, Roly Poly and Zea’s Rotisserie & Grill.
Concession sales for Downtown Alive! begin at 5:30 at Parc International; the music cranks up at 6. Both events are free and food/drink sales help keep it that way so please leave ice chests at home. Below are the remaining spring 2013 schedules for these awesome downtown events.
Bach Lunch is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year and to mark the occasion the Lafayette Science Museum Foundation will be raffling off a piece of artwork by popular local artist Kelly Guidry. “Musique” is a mixed media sculpture designed to hang on a wall. Tickets for the raffle are $5 apiece and can be purchased at the Lafayette Science Museum as well as at both Bach Lunch and Downtown Alive! concerts during March and April. The winner will be announced at the April 26 Bach Lunch. For details, call (337) 291-5544.

NOV 24 Because of a town ordinance, the police will come to a disabled girl's home this week to take away her service dog and kill him. Sound like a bad Lifetime movie? Nope - it's real life in Moreauville, blogger Lamar White Jr. tells us in this post. The dog's crime? Being born a pit bull. What's the reason for this ordinance? Well, the town fathers are a little vague on that one. Maybe Obama?
NOV 24 Columnist Stephanie Grace is writing about Bobby Jindal's continuing refusal to accept federal funding for the expansion of Medicaid. It's purely an attempt to benefit him politically, meaning the decision is "cruel, short-sighted and remarkably self-centered." Well, yeah. Have you met him?
NOV 24 The New York Times editorial board is writing about the 40 years that Albert Woodfox has spent in solitary confinement in this post, calling it "barbaric beyond measure." Since Richard Nixon was president, the man has been in solitary in Angola Plantation Penitentiary. How is that OK with us?
NOV 24 The GOP has a boogie-man for anybody thinking about voting for Mary Landrieu: President Obama. But the Dems have one for Bill Cassidy, too, Melinda Deslatte writes in this AP post on The Reading Eagle -- and his name is Governor Jindal.
NOV 24 Blogger Bob Mann is blogging about race and the Senate campaign in this post. Sure, everybody knows that Mary Landrieu doesn't do too well with white folks, but how come the GOP can't get arrested in the black community? Bob is asking.
NOV 24 Early voting for the December election began Saturday, and this post on NOLA Defender tells us what Mary and Bill were up to. The polls and the pundits have their opinions, but none of that can replace actual voting, NODEF says.
NOV 24 Blogger Tom Aswell tells us about Bruce Greenstein's grand jury testimony in this post. The former state health secretary testified in an investigation into the lucrative contract Louisiana awarded to his former employer. Apparently, Mr. Greenstein has a bit of the C.R.S. disease.
NOV 24 Last week, an SUV carrying a blended Texas family overturned on the Interstate near Shreveport, killing the parents and three of their kids, and seriously injuring two other kids. According to this story in the Dallas Morning News, the DA has exercised some compassion and dismissed the ticket given to the teen who was driving.
NOV 21 One (possible) positive from Hurricane Katrina is a comprehensive zoning ordinance for New Orleans. Nine years later, we're getting closer to that being finalized, but the current version has some problems. Here's the latest in a series of posts on The Lens in which residents give their views of the draft; this one is more amusing than most.
NOV 21 The end of the term has come for the grand jury investigating a lucrative Medicaid contract and a former state health official's ties to the company that won it, the Advocate reports here, but that doesn't mean the investigation into this stinkiness is over. There are still some things to look into, the lead prosecutor says.
NOV 21 Bobby Jindal is headed to Iowa again, the Des Moines Register reports here. The paper outlines what's going on with Bobby's non-campaign for president, and there's a lot of stuff here -- too bad none of it sounds like somebody running Louisiana. Hey, wasn't that the job he wanted?
