The first-ever Saint Street Inn Hot Dogit Cook-off is a definite departure from a standard backyard barbecue.
As a send-off for summer, the Saint Street Inn is hosting a hot dog cook-off a week from today, but not with standard your Oscar Meyer wieners.
Instead, three local cooks will set up their own hog dog stands on the Inn’s porch and compete for the title of best (homemade) hot dog. Those competing are Greg Walls of Johnson’s Boucaniere, Russell Hiltz of The Grateful Dawg hot dog cart and Saint Street Inn’s own Kelsey Leger, who will be creating a vegetarian hot dog — but all are welcome to try it.
Whole Damn Town will play on the alley stage that night, and the crowd will determine whose hot dog sets itself apart. Just show up Thursday, Sept. 20, between 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. at the Inn, located at 407 Brook Ave.
Frank’s Casing Crew, now doing business as Frank’s International, will make its final appearance on ABiz’s list of the Top 50 Privately Held Companies in Acadiana this year, and once again it will likely be at the top with more than $1 billion in annual revenues. The 75-year-old company specializing in tubular fabrication and installation services to the oil and gas industry plans to offer shares of its stock to the public for the first time.
The defeat, or rather highjacking of House Bill 420 in the final days of this year's Legislative Session, say Reps. Vincent Pierre and Terry Landry, is the result of the propaganda spread by one unidentified local media outlet and an unnamed former state Representative, but nothing to do with the original legislation's lack of checks, balances or details.
