Tipitina's to send Creole Catering Truck to Texas St for Music Co-op Office Grand Jete' Th, June 30
Tip's is one of the success stories of New Orleans. Somehow it has managed to beat the numerous curses that bonk businesses in the Crescent City.
Today Tip's has spawned a Foundation, and a Music Co-op. And of course they built a giant catering truck. Life in Louisiana might well become intolerable without Creole cooking.
Thursday, June 30, a bit of New Orleans comes to Shreveport via that catering truck, called Big Blue. It will serve diners out side of 700 Texas St, Shreveport's Tipitina's Foundation Music Office Co-op. It's the grand plie' of Tip's Co-op Shreveport.
Dan Garner, executive chef for the local office, promises free food and beverages, live music, and tours of the facility starting about 2:30 pm.
Tipitina’s Music Office Co-Op is a business
development and job skills training program for musicians, filmmakers, and other digital media professionals, says Todd Souvignier, Tip's NO-to-Spt bagman. Memberships are $10 per month.
