Porch Concert Series Presented By The Tigermen Den
We know in these times live music is medicine for the soul. We are excited to put on an outdoor, safe, socially distance, mask wearing moment for live local musicians to show you there are still alive and kicking.
We invite Bywater neighborhood folks to join while respecting others by wearing a mask and only sitting with your pod. We sometimes post these dates on Facebook or IG. We always send out a newsletter so those on the list will always be in the know.
Cajun Brunch Brings Fais Do Do to the Bywater
UPDATE- Fall 2020 - I can't think of any thing more anti COVID than getting in a crowded room and dancing close with a lot of strangers for a few hours-- so you can imagine that we do not see Cajun Brunch resuming any time soon. We might be seeing you all in late 2021 or 2022! Cross our finger. And know we miss the bands, the dancers, the cute dogs and smiling toddlers. In the mean time join us one our newsletter to find out about our outdoor socially distancing porch concerts.
And for those who have yet to attend here is the deal... My name is Leesaw Anne and I am the host of Cajun Brunch and Dance, a traditional fais do do, featuring live music from every corner of Cajun Country, held right in the heart of New Orleans! I was not born in Louisiana nor did I grown up here so I am what they call a transplant. When I hit my first cajun dance in Breaux Bridge over 10 years ago I was hooked! It is my honor to support the Cajun community of dancers and musicians of today by being the host of this event.
Cajun Brunch at The Tigermen Den kicked off in April 2012. A purely Louisiana tradition going back 100's of years, these parties are named for 'the gentle command - fais do do (go to sleep) which young mothers offered bawling infants' as they nursed not only their own children, but concern that their men may be dancing with another at the local after church social.
We usually offer up a beginners cajun 2 step partner dance lesson around 12pm and intermediate around 130pm. Full Brunch is served up this season by Bywater Bakery with a rotating menu of home grown favorites. Visiting our Facebook page to see the menu posted closer to the date of the event.
