He and She Said:
According to a carefully chosen panel of experts, what’s the best King Cake in town?
Who the hell cares?
Experts? We don’t need no stinkin’ experts. We need you.
For the second year in a row, we are crowdsourcing the vote for the best King Cake in NOLA. If you’re a native, you’ve been eating them all your life, right? And if you’re a transplant, we know you remember the first time you were smacked upside the head with Carnival pastry goodness.
You know what good is, so come out and prove it.
Here’s the deal:
Place: Thursday, February 2nd, 7pm sharp at the fabulous Patrick’s Bar Vin in the French Quarter. Haven’t been there yet? Here’s your chance to check out the Quarter’s newest wine bar and meet bon vivant extraordinaire Patrick van Hoorebeek. Click on this link for more info about Bar Vin.
Price of admission: Your opinion.
Bill of fare: A murderer’s row of confectionery bliss including cakes from the defending champion Cake Cafe and Bakery, Sucre, La Divina Gelateria, Rouses, Maple Street Patisserie, La Dolce NOLA, and a few more as we work this week to complete the list of contenders. By the time you stumble out in a sugar-induced coma, you’ll have sampled the best the city has to offer and passed judgement upon them all.
Bar Vin will be complementing the cakes with everything they have to offer, including drink specials on bubbly by the glass and king cake flavored vodka.
That’s not a misprint: king. cake. vodka.
So mark your calendar and make plans to come out, meet your humble correspondents, and let your voice be heard next Thursday!
*Disclaimer: While no one has actually, like, died during the death match (so far) He Said/She Said NOLA and Patrick’s Bar Vin take no responsibility for the effects of ridiculous sugar intake upon your system. The gloves are off for this pastry cage match, so eat at your own risk.
