Chefs Donald Link and Stephen Stryjewski are throwing a Tchouptoberfest all-ages, German-themed block party outside Cochon restaurant, complete with authentic German food, local beer, German wines, and a bunch of Indie rock bands, on Sunday, October 1 from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The music line-up includes Polish Pete and the Polkas, Rik Slave’s Country Persuasion, Conor Donohue, Midriff, Motel Radio, and Sexy Dex and the Fresh. The food line-up is all about the brats, beer, schnitzel, and pretzels.
The family-friendly event is the second in a series of new, more affordable dinners benefitting the Link Stryjewski Foundation, which in turn aims to “address the persistent cycle of violence and poverty as well as the lack of quality education and job training opportunities available to young people in New Orleans.” The first event in the series — a Champagne, fried chicken, pie, sides, and bourbon dinner at Cochon — sold out quickly.
Tickets are $20, with food available for purchase. A limited number of Bratz passes are available for $100 and include entry to Cochon Butcher for air-conditioned seating, complimentary snacks, beer, wine, and access to a full cash bar. Tickets are available in advance at www.linkstryjewski.org and at the door on October 1st.
Stay tuned for info on a dim sum dinner coming to Calcasieu on Tuesday, November 7.
