BATON ROUGE, LA (NBC33) — Tomorrow night our Tammi Arender will step away from the anchor desk and onto the stage at Ralph and Kackoo's on Bluebonnet for an event called “Meanwhile Back at Cafe Du Monde”.
Today, our camera crews caught up with the show's producer as she gets ready for the big event.
"Meanwhile Back at Cafe Du Monde" is an event centered around one of the most important parts of Louisiana culture, our food.
The event is the brain-child of Peggy Sweeney-McDonald and her partner Jay Basist. Sweeney McDonald got the idea while living in New Orleans and visiting with friends.
The event's Friday night at Ralph and Kackoo's and there's an encore performance on Saturday. The tickets are $25 and it includes a buffet.
So far "Meanwhile Back at Cafe Du Monde" has been held in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and the show's producers are preparing for a run in Los Angeles.
