Super Bowl Sunday found me exactly where I thought I’d be–near the buffet and in an arms distance from the skull shaped beer bong. I knew New Orleans was going to pull it off just as I knew there’d be good eating to be had. The fete at Van & Kelly’s, the King and Queen of Southern food and the best hosts ever (remember the homemade pizza party?), as usual, did not disappoint. Both teams were superbly represented: Abita beer on tap, popcorn flown in from Indiana, seafood gumbo, red beans and rice (made with beans flown in from Indy), homemade biscuits and homemade French bread not to mention the two stars of the show–the Indianapolis Pork Cutlet Biscuit Sandwich and the Naw’lins Braised Beef n’ Gravy Debris Po’boy. Which do you think won?
Notice our homemade hot sauce made it into the mix!
