African Jazz Supper Club
Imagine yourself in a candlelit West African speakeasy. Delicious home-cooked small plates are being served from the tiny kitchen in the back. A rockin’ band performs in the corner. You sip your cold rooibos iced tea as you tap your foot. A fresh Tamarind Pineapple Rum cocktail arrives at your table. You don’t have to get on a transatlantic flight to experience such a night!
Join us for our first indoor event of 2021.
The evening will transport you to a different time, a different land, and a different culture.

Cajun Brunch Brings Fais Do Do to the Bywater

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 with a rotating menu of home grown favorites. Visiting our Facebook page to see the menu posted closer to the date of the event.
