Benefit for Mr. Okra

Mr. Okra

May 20, 2010
6-10 pm
at d.b.a. (618 Frenchman St., NOLA)

A well-known presence in New Orleans, Mr. Okra sells fresh fruits and vegetables with sing-song announcements over loud speakers from his truck.  His selling-style reminds of us days when vendors roamed the streets of New Orleans and filled Congo Square with their goods, chanting advertisements for coffee and calas.

Mr. Okra's truck, as identifiable as Mr. Okra in bright slogans ans colorful decorations, has reached the end of its wandering days.  Help him raise money to buy a new truck by coming out to d.b.a. on Thursday to hear Morning 40 Federation. Happy Talk Band, Guitar Lightnin' Lee, King James and Mr Graveyard Jaw.  Attendees can make a tax-deuctible donation to Mr. Okra by writing a check to the Southern Food and Beverage Museum with "Mr. Okra" in the memo line.
