Top Chef NOLA Gala

This evening, in the Lindy C. Boggs International Conference Center at the University of New Orleans, Maximo’s own head chef, Thomas Woods, along with two other noted local chefs, will be participating in Top Chef NOLA, a cook-off fundraiser benefiting New Beginnings School Foundation. Their mission is to raise awareness about the dangers of childhood obesity by promoting healthy eating all while supporting public education. Chefs will be preparing dishes of classic school lunch meals with an added gourmet twist. Earlier this week, Chef Woods was featured on channel 4 news to promote the event and performed an on-air cooking demonstration where he prepared his signature Chili Glazed Scallops.
We couldn’t be prouder…go get ‘em chef!

On Wednesday, July 28, a production will be filming at the corner of Decatur and Barracks. Parking along parts of those blocks will be restricted from noon to midnight. There may also be intermittent traffic closures on those blocks.

That’s the corner by Cafe Envie and the U.S. Mint. Does anyone know what they are filming?

Thanks to the VCPORA Weekly update email for the tip.
