We all but knew it — a soiree at the Acadiana Center for Arts was announced last week — but now it’s official: Lafayette has won Southern Living magazine’s “South’s Tastiest Town” competition, edging out Louisville, Ky., by about 35,000 votes. Lafayette received nearly 200,000 votes in the on-line competition held earlier this year. Also in the running were Birmingham, Ala., Houston, Raleigh, NC, Decatur, Ga., Charleston, SC, New Orleans, Charlottesville, Virg., and Baltimore. In all more than a half a million people voted in the competition.

A reception during which much eating, drinking and self-congratulating will take place happens tonight at the AcA.
