Hungry partygoers to decide who wears the Chowdown Crown: LRA Northshore Chapter presents “Northshore Chowdown: Taco Takeover”
The Louisiana Restaurant Association (LRA) Northshore Chapter is excited to present the inaugural event, “Northshore Chowdown: Taco Takeover,” which will be held Thursday, September 20, 2018 at Maison Lafitte, 402 Lafitte Street in Mandeville from 6-9 p.m.
Northshore Chowdown, which is featuring a taco battle in its first year, 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.
“This new event will be the ‘taco-f’ of the town,” said LRA Northshore Chapter President Craig Smith. “We are encouraging all of our restaurants to give it all they’ve ‘guac’ to present the best dish of the night to those lucky enough to attend!”
Time to ‘taco’ about some of the restaurants competing: The Lakehouse Restaurant, The Shack, Benedict’s Plantation, Old Rail Brewing Company, Bacobar, N’Tini’s and The Rusty Pelican, just to name a few.
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.
