Over 3,000 people have RSVP'd on NOLA Brewing Taphouse's Facebook page that they'll be attending today's Grand Opening. Ian McNulty is salivating over the combination of NOLA's beer, Neil McClure's BBQ, and views of the Mississippi. Get there early, 'cause as Tap Room management nervously noted, capacity for the building is 1200. Free entrance, live music, BBQ, beer. [Facebook, The Advocate]

The Southern Food and Beverage Museum (SoFAB) will start offering cooking demonstrations/classes on Monday afternoons beginning on June 29. Forty bucks gets you a meal of tomato salad, jambalaya, and bananas Foster, plus the ability to make it all at home. [Eaterwire]

Chilled Magazine named local distillery Donner Peltier's Rougaroux Full Moon rum as one of its picks as 8 Rums For Right Now, focusing on escaping to tropical paradise in a glass. "It's made with a blend of locally grown blackstrap molasses and raw sugar, with no added ingredients. This one's a fine sipper for those who prefer a heavier style with a sweet finish."

New Press Street Station chef James Cullen announced an all day breakfast menu at the non-profit cafe that supports the New Orleans Center for the Creative Arts (NOCCA) which includes dishes like "a sweet potato brioche French toast served with a blueberry fruit compote and Steen's Cane Syrup butter. A take on eggs Benedict includes boudin and grilled summer squash topped with poached eggs and a sauce choron," according the Gambit food maven Helen Freund. [Gambit]
