Labor Day weekend — Louisiana-style!

John and Nina Arico of Zest Catering are hosting a super Dining On Air Party to benefit WSLR 96.5 LPFM radio this coming Saturday, September 5th at 7:00 p.m. I think the restaurant is located in the Gulf Gate area on Superior Ave. The Arico’s are serving up a fabulous New Orleans-themed dinner with yummy crab cakes, chicken and sausage gumbo, blackened fish with corn relish and mirliton (what the heck is that!?) Wine, beer, ice tea and sparkling water are included.

John Osgood — the radio host of WSLR’s popular Sunday night Louisiana Gumbo show (which airs every Sunday from 7 to 9 pm) — is creating a special mix of Louisiana-flavored music to complement the cuisine and will be dining with guests and answering any questions about zydeco, blues, Louisiana music, and lots more ….

A free after party is planned at Arts Center Sarasota with LIVE music by Los Rumberos and scrumptious desserts donated by local businesses including Pastry Arts, Carr’s Corner, Ben and Jerry’s and more.

The price is $50 per person — not too bad considering you’re getting a four-course specially-prepared gourmet meal and drinks, music and good conversation AND DESSERT! (I’m so there!) And though WSLR’s website and publicity about the event doesn’t say how much of the ticket price goes back to WSLR and doesn’t tell whether or not any portion of the ticket price is tax-deductible, you might be able to find out by calling the station; at the very least, you’ll be getting great cuisine and supporting local radio.
