The Deets

Chefs from Avondale Common House, Post Office Pies, Saw’s Soul Kitchen and MELT will make a menu item that will be a part of a proper Sunday dinner.

Sounds like a good time for a good cause. The music should be fun, too.

Gospel choirs will start the day’s entertainment before handing off to the blues, rock and soul collective known as Bourbon ‘n Bleach.

“Like blues you can dance to? Like The Dead? Like getting home with sore feet but without bleeding ears? You gonna like this.”
