Red Beans

Ian McNulty

Here’s one thing you can rely on in New Orleans: The result of a Saints game sways the mood of this town. Here’s another: On Monday, people are eating red beans and rice. This Saints season, I decided to join the two together.

On this week's show, we head down to the Fairgrounds for some Jazz Fest fun! 

We begin by sampling red beans and rice with longtime vendors Judy Burks and Morris Douglas. Judy's Red Beans booth has been woven into the very fabric of Jazz Fest over the 40 years that she's been stirring the pot at the Fairgrounds.
