On Tuesday, November 8th, 6-10 PM Newly-Opened South Kitchen & Wine Bar is hosting a "New Orleans Style" Fundraiser. TICKETS $25 Visit southkitchenbar.com for information.

Hurricane Katrina and Rita have forever changed New Orleans and the Gulf Region. Indeed, America will never be the same. It appears the worst is over, however, for many there is no home to return to, and there is no hope of rebuilding.

With the Thanksgiving Holiday fast approaching--a time when families and friends gather to give thanks--we pause to remember our friends in the Gulf Region who have lost their homes and in some cases been foreced to separate from their families. This event is dedicated to their ongoing needs.

All proceeds will go directly to the American Red Cross.

On the evening of November 8th, a Tuesday, from 6--10 PM, Newly-Opened South Kitchen & Wine Bar along with local community members, to include, Janice Connolly-Laubenstein "Mayor of Southie," is hosting an evening to remember. SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY & A GOOD TIME!!

Chef Jerome Watkins will create a Southern Regional Menu. Jerome teamed up with Lydia Shire at Excelsior and was matched with Mario Batali and David Pasternack at World-Renowned Esca in New York City. "South" will also present a dessert table. Sous Chef, Oji Scurry graduated from the Art Institue of New York with a Pastry Degree. The wine and beverage director Joe Kelly is working with Ruby Wines to provide a wine tasting menu to give "You All" an opportunity to try some of the restaurant's special selections.

Appetizers, deserts, and wine--ON US! Joe Kelly is also planning to serve "Southern Cocktails" and will hand some Mardi Gras Beads on you with a cocktail purchase. The entertainment will be Hakem Law and David Ehle Quartet who were featured at the Beantown Jazz Festival. Hakem played Keyboard for many Motown Groups including the
