LOUISIANA (NBC33) — EAST BATON ROUGE PARISH - Some big stars are in town, and Wednesday MSN's Appetite For Life with Andrew Zimmern will film a jambalaya cook-off in downtown Baton Rouge's new town square. Jambalaya chefs Tee Wayne Abshire and Carlos Braud will be dishing out the goods. You can buy jambalaya for $5 a plate, and all the proceeds will go to the Capitol Area United Way. You'll also see quite a few Baton Rouge "food trucks" in the area.
WEST BATON ROUGE PARISH - People packing the Hilton Inn Express in Port Allen, all to see if their forgotten family treasures could be worth a fortune. It's all part of the Ohio Valley Gold and Silver Refinery Traveling Show. Starting today, event organizers will evaluate and make offers on valuable antiques, collectibles, and jewelry. Admission to the event is free. You can bring in your treasures to the Holiday Inn Express from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Friday or Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
TANGIPAHOA PARISH - A Hammond woman says she's been crying since she got out of the hospital. Jeanne Davis says her two precious cats, Mittens and Snowball, were given away while she was in the hospital. We're told a family member mistakenly gave the cats away, thinking Davis would stay in the hospital and not be able to care for the cats. Davis is hoping the person who has her cats will bring them back to be with her. She says she's devastated.
LAFAYETTE PARISH - Police in Scott are asking for your help tonight, looking for a man wanted for a home invasion. Scott police say the man they're looking for is white with an olive complexion between 23 and 30 years old. If you recognize this man, contact police.
