Hey, you know me: I’m always looking for an extra helping or two … or maybe three. Well imagine eating out at a restaurant where each helping – every dish you order – contributes to a good cause. That’s what’s happening for the week from February 1st through the 8th at Z’Tejas in the Gateway.
Next week Z’Tejas will kick off their “Bayou Bash,” a celebration of Cajun cooking and Mardi Gras featuring a special menu filled with Cajun-Creole cuisine from New Orleans. And during Z’Tejas’ Bayou Bash they’ll be contributing one dollar for every item ordered from their menu to Share Our Strength whose local beneficiaries include Utahns Against Hunger and the Utah Food Bank. So order an appetizer, entrée, and dessert and that’s three bucks going to feed the needy.
According to Z’Tejas Corporate Chef and all-around nice guy Jack Gilmore, “The Bayou Bash is all about celebrating our Louisiana roots during the Mardi Gras festival and helping the hungry while enjoying some good Cajun food.” Sounds like a perfect plan to me!
Among the Cajun cuisine offered up during the Bayou Bash at Z’Tejas will be a zippy crawfish popper salad, Big Easy seafood gumbo, blackened catfish, Big Daddy’s Voodoo steak, and Queen K’s jambalaya. Then you can wrap up your Bayou Bash with Rachel’s bread pudding or my single favorite dessert: bananas Foster.
In addition to helping the hungry during Bayou Bash customers can also enter to win a trip to New Orleans from Southwest Airlines. The Bayou Bash at Z’Tejas kicks off on Fat Tuesday, February 1st.
