Music Of Treme News Roundup – May 20, 2010

The significant other and I headed over to Cafe Reconcile today for lunch. If you are ever in the New Orleans area you need to do lunch, it is great food and helps a worthy cause. I had the White Beans and Shrimp, Mary had the Smothered Chicken, shared Blueberry Cobbler.  Meant to take pics but I was…uhhh…. hungry.
