2015 New Orleans Wine and Food Experience off to rainy start

NEW ORLEANS--Nothing stops a party in the Vieux Carre, and that proved to be the case when a downpour showed up, just like clockwork, at the annual Royal Street Stroll that was the inaugural event of the 2015 New Orleans Wine and Food Experience. More than 400 hearty souls, donning rain slickers and toting umbrellas, braved the wind and rain to slog through the rain soaked cobble stone streets of the French Quarter to scoop up Shrimp 'Martinis', Crawfish Beignets, Catfish Sliders and Lobster Mac 'N Cheese, all washed down with copious amounts of Barefoot Wine and Hendricks Gin Pimm's Cups.
