Sitting on the Porch with Googi and Mojo

A Special Pre-Treat to the Retreat: Must Register by May 1

Googi—aka Karen Kennedy—and Mister Mojo host this one-of-a-kind get together for anyone who registers on or before May 1. Join these Louisiana-rooted folk and dedicated NAPAMA members as they adopt a "laissez faire" slant, sharing the traditions, sounds, tastes, and culture of New Orleans and Southwest Louisiana. Your hosts will offer up some down-home recipes and beverages suggestions in advance to prepare fxor the soirée. Eat, drink, talk, listen, meet, and maybe even dance a bit; and do feel free to join with a Mardi Gras flare. Prizes will be awarded!
