Travel Channel: Man v. Food/Nawlins [Moved from New Orleans Board]
Did anyone watch this show 1/28/09 (Wednesday). The host visited Deanie's (I'm glad they're still there post-K) where he enjoyed his bbq shrimp in the kitchen because he couldn't wait to chow down, Mother's for a Fergie & lesson in debris preparation. Finally, off to Acme where he joined the 15 dozen club - now that was something to watch! Has anyone attended/participated in one of these "initiations"?
As a friend of the family that owns Deanie's, I have eaten there way too many times to count, so I'm part of the bbq'd shrimp club there. I have also had the Fergie at Mother's, but I think there are better sandwiches out there, mother's is waaaay overrated in my opinion. I would never attempt to eat 15 dozen oysters in one sitting, he had like an hour to do it correct? I much prefer to sit at the oyster bar on a lazy afternoon at Acme and talk to the shucker and befriend him, that way you get quite a few freebies while he is shucking for others.
