Stop Pussyfootin' Around and Start Readin'
Chapter 11 - Churros and Smart Casual “Anyone who believes what a cat tells him deserves all he gets.”> Neil Gaiman, British author
Hobnobbing with celebrities was not our purpose in choosing Clancy’s. We would not be shocked to see a recognizable face but that was not our reason for going there. Alice and I fully expected the restaurant to live up to its reputation as the Creole bistro that started the New Orleans Creole dining scene. We would be surprised if the Fried Oysters and Brie or Smoked, Soft-Shell Crab didn’t live up to its fame. We had another reason - a more personal reason for choosing Clancy’s. We were going to have a contest.
"In 1814 we took a little trip,
Along with Colonel Jackson down the mighty Mississip',
We took a little bacon, And we took a little beans,
And we caught the bloody British in the town of New Orleans."
Follow along in Chapter 10 and find out who really won the Battle of New Orleans. Be aware - this is the only place in the story where the Name of the Restaurant has been changed.
