Followed this thread - mostly salivating at thought of the great food and rooting you on during rough times.    Just donated so those close to you can enjoy a meal.   Keep up the great work!

Done.  I just spent the last month at Ochsner.  I'm more than happy to chip in to feed those guys.  It's getting bad over there, so anyone still hanging in there is deserving of whatever kindness they can get.  Thanks for doing it Tipsy.

We are doing this under the guise of my BBQ team called Deswine intervention... We are associated with the men's club from school / Church.   Normally our efforts go towards Hogs for the cause which raises money for families dealing with pediatric brain cancer that have chipped at our focus in the short-term .

Tipsy,

A long, long while ago you sold rubs here, I bought and they were fantastic. I would, and I’d think many here would, be willing to pay up for some rub. Some goes to charity, some to staff that may have been layed off, however you see fit. Just an idea for us far away to help support things and I get it if it’s too much with everything that’s going on.

800 meals.

  Haven't gotten a very good hard number out of my team captain yet but we have raised a bunch of money.  And I know a bunch of them of come from this community pay some some of the names he's spouted off.   You guys rock.

They take Paypal.  That speeds things up.

(Even if you are serving poisonous food.  I'm allergic to catfish.  Weird, huh?)

Things are tight here at the moment Tipsy, but what you're doing is amazing.  Donated what I felt I could.  Keep it up.  ANd in a few weeks, sell us some rub!

ETA: Forgot to put a note so you'd know it was from fbg, but "cook" is part of my handle.

y'all are awesome!   love this community.

 

50 # of redbeans cooking today for the start of next week....driving the brewery folks nuts with the smell.

Then 40 gallons of Jambalaya for the hospital and a bunch of kids trapped at one of the colleges with no way to go home.

 

Tomorrow we are selling plates of catfish or crawfish to help the fundraising efforts.....250 pounds of crawfish and 75 plates of catfish sold so far.   #killingit

Keep up the great work GB.  Don't check in here much anymore (though likely will be in the baseball forum), but wanted to chime in cause you are indeed a friend - of mine, and most of all, the N.O. community. 

Next week I'll send a another donation (gotta get to the next billing cycle! should have received on a week or so back, not sure just when).

1900 meals done.   

Yesterday we sold crawfish and catfish plates and raised about $2500 more for the effort after costs.   

Really wish i didn't have to be profit driven as a restaurant. Feeding people for charity is much more fulfilling.

At least 3k from you guys, possibly closer to 4k but hard to tell with some of the names.   Fantastic work y'all. 

Thank you.   Fully funded for at least another two weeks.  

100 tonight going out to UMC.   Smoked & Glazed Chicken with Jambalaya & Cole Slaw + Girl Scout Cookies.
