Hungry partygoers to decide who wears the Chowdown Crown: LRA Northshore Chapter hosts its “Northshore Chowdown: Taco Takeover”
The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) Northshore Chapter is excited to present the second annual event, “Northshore Chowdown: Taco Takeover,” which will be held Thursday, September 19, 2019 at Benedict’s Plantation, 1144 N. Causeway Blvd. in Mandeville from 6-9 p.m.
Northshore Chowdown, which is featuring a taco battle between the participating chefs, will feature LRA member restaurants’ taco-inspired dishes, margaritas, raffles and more. The public is invited to taste their way through the evening and vote on their favorite to receive the Chowdown Crown.
“Last year’s event was such a success, we have decided to host the second-annual Taco Takeover event for the Northshore Chapter at the beautiful Benedict’s Plantation in Mandeville,” said LRA Northshore Chapter President Jake Palmer. “We hope you can join us on September 19 for an evening of delicious tacos, cold margaritas, and a little friendly competition!”
A few of the competing restaurants are: The Shack, Benedict’s Plantation, Acme Oyster House, Old Rail Brewing Company, Half Shell Oyster House, The Rusty Pelican and St. Ann Wine Bar.
A portion of the proceeds from Northshore Chowdown: Taco Takeover will benefit the Louisiana Restaurant Association Education Foundation (LRAEF). 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 seven Northshore Louisiana schools.
