In partnership with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Hospitality Management
METAIRIE, La.—The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) Acadiana Chapter is excited to partner with the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Hospitality Management Program for the inaugural event, “Acadiana Food & Wine Soirée,” which will be held Wednesday, October 11, 2017 at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Alumni House, 600 E. St. Mary Blvd. in Lafayette from 6-9 p.m.
Kicking off Lafayette’s annual “Festivals Acadiens et Créoles” weekend, Acadiana Food & Wine Soirée will have wine and tasty cuisine from 20 different area restaurants. There will be a commemorative wine glass for every guest, and the opportunity to purchase the featured bottles of wine onsite.
Open to the public, partygoers should bring their appetites, as they will be able to enjoy signature dishes from such restaurants as Bon Temps Grill, The Petroleum Club, POUR Restaurant & Bar, Romacelli Bistro e Vino and Zea Rotisserie & Grill, to name a few.
A portion of the proceeds from Acadiana Food & Wine Soirée will benefit the Louisiana Restaurant Association Education Foundation (LRAEF) and the University of Louisiana at Lafayette Hospitality Management Program. The LRAEF, in turn, will use monies raised to further promote the restaurant industry as a career choice through its restaurant management and culinary arts program, ProStart®, offered at eight Acadiana schools and its scholarship program.
Thank you to our Acadiana Food & Wine Soirée Sponsors: Waitr, Republic National Distributing Company, Romacelli Bistro e Vino, City Club at River Ranch and POUR Restaurant & Bar.
