Shreveport All Stars at the former Freeman & Harris Restaurant on Sat, Jan 2, noon to 1 pm

Shreveport All Stars
Originally uploaded by trudeau
At least the ghosts of Pete Harris and his staff, family and friends have a place to visit; the site of Freeman's in Allendale has not been destroyed. Today it is called Hospitality House. On Sat, Jan 2, Dan Garner and gang invade the premises - insert memories of Freeman's gumbo here - with guitars, mics and tunes. From noon to 1 pm.

If anyone you know has a cache of photos left over from Freeman's active years, I would be interested in scanning them and producing a Freeman & Harris blog. Former waitress Jessie Singletary and I have often talked about putting those memories online. That's a part of Shreveport history that touched people coast to coast with a distinctly Louisiana vibe. Creating a Freeman's blog might lead to a festival or historic display or who knows what. Email
