HOUMA: Booze whisperer Laura McKnight provides the 5 things you need to know before hitting Houma on November 15 for the 2nd Bayou Beer Festival, which includes the news that festival sponsor Mudbug Brewing will not be open in time to pour beer for the festival, although they had had high hopes they'd be able to do so when they signed on as a sponsor this past spring.

UPTOWN: Brett Anderson dives headfirst into a bowl of queso (and that just barely escapes literal truth) in his semi-regular ode to day-to-day dishes he's digging on, "The Best Thing I Ate in New Orleans." He sings the praises of Del Fuego Taqueria's queso fundido, saying, "Cutting through the brown top-crust to lift portions onto warmed tortillas, the fundido looked more like south-of-the-border moussaka - or a spicy, pasta-less lasagna - than a dip. I was impressed by the tacos that followed, but I would have been just as happy eating another round of Wright's unexpectedly elegant take on cheesy Mexican comfort food." [NOLA.com]

BAYOU ST. JOHN: Thanksgiving poor boy/po-boy fans, it's finally that time of year again: Parkway is serving its Thanksgiving poor boy - which is composed of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and gravy - every Wednesday in November starting tomorrow. [Eaterwire]
