  1. I wish they were making the Oysters with Bleu Cheese and the BBQ oysters.

    I always liked the oyster shucker at Uglesich's. Is he working in another restaurant?

      A couple of years ago, my wife and I were at Felix's and chatted up the shucker.

      He introduced himself as Mike and indicated that he had been at Uglesich's until it closed. Looked in the Uggie cookbook and, sure enough, there was Mike. Got him to sign my Felix's t-shirt.

      That said, can't say he's still at Felix's.

    2. WOW, I really miss Uggie's. Maybe they'll consider opening a place in the future.

      1. Anyone else planning to come next weekend? I am looking forward to the beignet eating contest between the fire and police department.

            I'm sad I'll be missing this, but it's the same day as the Freret Street Festival, which I'll be vending for.

              Well, it doesn't look like many people on the forum went to the event, but I really enjoyed Ugelisich, Louie Mueller and the many other vendors. Looking forward to participating next year.

            2. I went and everything I ate was good, but did I miss something--I don't recall seeing a few of these places represented (Tucson Tamale, Tony Luke's, Middendorf's)?
