EatLafayette officially begins Monday, June 17, and INDEats has been busy preparing for our Dish of the Day features for the course of the campaign. As foodies and supporters of local business, we assure you it’s going to be a tasty summer.
We are working hard to keep readers informed on what’s happening at participating restaurants and capturing food that looks as delicious as it tastes. Every week the dishes will have a theme and will begin with a week devoted to the heart of Lafayette (and The IND), downtown Lafayette. Get ready to dine around town — come hungry, leave full and share your experience with others. Celebrate the culinary delights that fuel the Hub City.
On June 19 EatLafayette hosts A Taste of Lafayette, a kickoff event featuring samples from 44 of the participating restaurants, live music by Chubby Carrier, and drinks provided by Bayou Teche Brewery, Sweet Crude Rum and Coca-Cola. Travel Machine will also be present to help guests sign up to win a four-day cruise.
This event is an annual crowd-pleaser, but it’s not open to the public. INDEats wants you to be one of the lucky ones to attend. If you or someone you know loves to eat and loves Lafayette, be sure to participate in our giveaway for two passes to Wednesday night’s event.
