At Joey's it's always fresh... and what a fresh idea... grass fed beef. Yum! Now first, let me tell you about their upcoming events.
October 6 (7pm) will be Joey’s 30th Anniversary Italian Wine Dinner with a special guest who’s an Italian Wine Specialist. This event will require reservations.
On October 8 Joey’s for sampling of local grass fed beef which has become a hot item for them. So if you are in the market for grass fed beef, but do not know where to purchase – go to Joey’s. As you already know, Joey’s has provided Lafayette with some of the best selection of prime and choice steaks, Cajun specialty meats and fresh seafood since 1981. Not sure if you realize it, but Joey’s receives fresh seafood daily. Oh and I love their prepared foods, imagine a potluck dinner with your friends and no time to cook. Go to Joey’s. I can taste the shrimp stuffed eggplant.
Then Joey’s will have their Holiday Food and Wine Extravaganza on October 27 from 6 – 8pm. They’ll be sampling over 80 types of wine and spirits. I’m especially excited about this event because we are selling raffle tickets for 7 cases of wine ( I of each sampled that evening) with all benefits of the raffle going to Hospice of Acadiana.
Joey’s is located at 503 Bertrand Drive. For more information go to their website: www.joeyslafayette.com
