Flight attendants and pilots greeted guests at the EatLafayette Kickoff party at Acadiana Center for the Arts. Sponsored by the New Fly Lafayette Club and new sponsor Robert Mondavi Winery, this year’s EatLafayette event featured 40 local restaurants that showed off their delectable cuisine, including smoked seafood crepes from iMonelli, mojitos from Café Habana City, poboys from Old Tyme Grocery, grillades and grits from French Press, lobster BLTs from Café Vermilionville, duck and andouille sausage gumbo from Charley G’s — so much food, so little time. More than 60 restaurants are participating in this year’s eighth annual campaign, which is designed to encourage dining locally. So take a break from cooking and try their incredible, mouth-watering specials, running through Aug. 15.

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.
