Anyone interested in having a message board party for the crew who live in New Orleans & in the other southern areas? I e-mailed Randy about the idea & he's game. If he comes down here he said we can plan to set something up. We need to keep up with the New Yorkers!

Hey, save up for Mardi Gras. We know they will be playing here in March, just waiting on the official date. The location is downtown already so, you can easily crawl to the show.

Are we looking to do this indoor's or out? In other words, at someones house or at a neutral ground, like a park or club? With weather a factor, it might have to be indoors, unless you think otherwise. Maybe we should have planned this out. I mean they are playing in Slidell for new years, and again in March.

It's your call, I know I've got a few old Zebra friends that would be happy to attend. The live out in Slidell, so if it doesn't pan out, that we can't swing something, I'm sure they will be going to the show for new years. I might even ask Randy permission to record that one too.

What's your thoughts?

Big Sun

If everyone here on the board can make the New Years Eve bash that will be great. If we can get Randy to do an acoustic show for us that would be a bonus.

It's kinda of late in the year and this make a take a while to plan with Randy's schedule so I think we should shoot for next Spring to be sure that everyone has plenty of time to make arrangements.

If anyone has an ideal setup in their backyard (lots of space etc.) let us know. I think a BBQ like the guys in N.Y. pulled off would be nice except we can make it a crawfish boil!

Our house has this really huge oak tree in the backyard that unforunately keeps grass from growing, so our backyard wouldn't cut it.

I know a few people with sports-club type bars who may be willing to host Randy and all us folks, if not inside then outside in the lot a la Randy's N.O. Daquiri's acoustic show...!

WHEN IS THE UNOFFICIAL 1ST DAY OF MARDI GRAS!!!

I think it would be great if we could have Randy squeeze in an acoutic show in before new years, but with the holidays it may be to hectic & rushed. I think Big Sun's idea about a crawfish boil next spring would be ideal, & we can have it at a park like yleekiyote suggested.
ZebraFreak: everyday is Mardi Gras around here! I know Mardi Gras is March 4th. Try this link it gives parade schedules & more info about mardi gras:

It looks like there will not be a crawfish boil afterall. Randy is totally against the idea of boiling crawfish alive.

Reading his email made me think more about what actually goes on when the poor little guys are boiled alive. I have never boiled crawfish myself nor have I ever seen them boiled alive so I guess I never really thought about it before. Growing up in N.O. and still living in the area all I have become accustomed to eating crawfish without ever really thinking about the boiling process.

I can totally understand why Randy would not want to play a show while crawfish are being boiled alive as he is performing.

I knew Randy was a vegetarian but I guess I just thought of a crawfish boil since the NY folks had a BBQ.

I have also always known that Bears is an anti-hunting song and I do not hunt even though my entire family it seems enjoys hunting. I always preferred to record music (such as my Wait Until The Summer's gone cover) on my multi-track recorder during the Thanksgiving Holidays rather than go hunting.

My wife Zebragirl has taught me to repsect animals and I not only would I not enjoy hunting, I could never kill an animal for sport.

I hope we didn't insult Randy by inviting him to play for us @ a crawfish boil. We don't really need any food or @ least I don't as long as we have Randy perform for us I'll be happy with chips & dip!

Being from New Olreans, I'm sure he has eaten them before. I've boiled them before, it is a sad day, but you got to think why GOD put them here. Each time I pass a McDonalds or any fast food joint, I think of that movie "Faces of Death", where they show them slaughtering the cows. It turns my stomach to see it and I always have that vision in my head, but again, they are here for us. I have nothing against vegitarians, except when they are blocking me from making my choice, and not criticize me for my decision.

I guess we can do vegitable plates, and various dips.

zebragirl
11-02-2002, 10:44 PM
I think we need to respect Randy's choices. There is nothing wrong with having salads, pasta dishes, & chips & dip. I e-mailed him this evening to let him know I understand & respect his feelings about the crawfish boil. He thanked me & we are still having the party, just veggie style! I'll keep everyone posted as soon as a date is set.

WE HAD PLENTY OF NON-VEGGIE DISHES HERE...
BUT WE DIDN'T KILL ANYTHING WHILE HE WAS HERE!!!

how long did the New York BBQ take from idea to actually happening?
Wouldn't that be just a crazy thing if the new CD came out before we got a chance to have this shindig?

zebragirl
11-03-2002, 01:39 PM

I already asked Randy & he wants to have the party. It's up to him when the party will happen, because of his schedule.

MrBungle
11-04-2002, 12:57 AM
lol...we've been a month jockeying the location/time around! har de har...

zg, did Randy say a ballpark time frame? It's going to be crazy come Thanksgiving then approaching XMas, 'though he might be in before the New Year's show. Then it'll be crazy for Mardi Gras and in March (I'm guessing here) 'round the Howling Wolf show because of the (and I say this lightly) timing of the new CD, I'm sure they'll be wanting to strike up the live dates to support it.

Is RJ a vegetarian or true vegan? I had a friend that we had some nifty BBQ recipes for (grilled corn ears, yada yada yada) that was a true vegan.

zebragirl
11-04-2002, 03:04 AM
from what i know a true vegan, those recipes would be cool. I will talk to him soon so we can definately decide WHEN it will happpen.

zebragirl
11-04-2002, 02:55 PM
Randy e-mailed me today, he will be here Dec 27th - Jan 3rd, & then he thinks in March after that. Give me some input when everyone wants to have this party. Then we'll go from there.

OU812,
Didn't you say you lived in Reserve or something? I was kind of hoping that maybe we could have the Randy party someplace central to everyone.
It's rough enough that I will have to drive out to Slidell to make the New Year's Eve show (if I can afford not to work).

How about we have it someplace like City Park?

How long does it take to get from the airport to your place? And do you take Airline or the I-10?

Maybe it will not be so far afterall.
