Jazz Fest '09

This year marks the 40th Anniversary of Jazz Fest. Like you needed another reason to go? The weather outlook for this weekend is very optimistic, so take to the Fairgrounds and revel in the greatest celebration of our unique culture. Not sure which acts to see or what to eat? Pickup a free copy of the Jazz Fest Bible at the gates. This pocket sized guide is the handy dandy work of our editor over at offBeat, complete with the our rundown of the food vendors. There are too many to list here. But no worries because no matter what you decide to eat, for some reason it always tastes better at Jazz Fest.

Tomorrow Chef Donald Link will be in the Book Tent from 2:00-3:00 signing copies of his new book Real Cajun: Rustic Home Cooking from Donald Link's Louisiana. On a related note, Calcasieu, Chef Link's new private event facility, will be serving dinner this weekend and next. Checkout the menu on the right hand side of the page under the heading "Stay Current."

Besides Jazz Fest there is also the Zurich Classic over at TPC (where the food in the Champion's Tent has been pretty good in my past experiences), and also the Hornets come home for Game 3 tomorrow at noon.

I still beelieve.
