Craft cocktail bar Cure and Pableaux Johnson are teaming up to cook red beans to benefit the American Red Cross of Houston to help with immediate disaster needs this Saturday, September 2, 2017 from noon to 3 p.m at Cure.

“Watching Houston and the other affected areas of Texas go through Harvey really feels like we're watching Katrina happen again. Except this time it's happening to our neighbors in Texas. New Orleanians will be forever grateful to all those who helped us at our darkest hour and we want to make sure that we can do our small part. Pableaux Johnson invites different people into his home for red beans and rice almost every Monday night (he's also been known to cook for his friends on the road too). I make drinks. Together we hope that we can use our modest talents to raise a little money for the Houston Red Cross by showing that a little community goes a long way," said Neal Bodenheimer, co-owner at Cure.

The concept is simple. Red beans and rice afficianado Pableaux Johnson will cook red beans and cornbread for 120 people (seating is limited, FYI). Cure will serve up the some incredible cocktails. The family-friendly event costs $20 at the door, with discounted pricing for children and no charge for children under the age of 5 years.

Johnson, known for his Red Beans Road Show, was recently included on Epicurious' recent 100 Greatest Home Cooks of All Time list.

Cure NOLA expects this to be the first in a series to help out with the rebuilding.
