Don’t Blame Me I would Have Voted For Bernie – Happy Hour – It’s New Orleans
Although the country voted for Donald Trump for President, New Orleans went 80% for Hillary. To try and drown our sorrows we assembled 3 of the most upbeat New Orleanians we could convince to come have free drinks with Grant at Happy Hour.
Stasia Cymes is the #1 clutter clearing queen of New Orleans, crowned by no less an authority than Angie’s List. Stasia cried all morning about the state of the nation but after 3 hours of clearing clutter and two stiff drinks she’s back on top.
Vocka Redu is a super star little known in his own back yard. Blending styles from P-funk to Southern bounce, Vocka entertains across the country and around the world. Today he lets loose at the table, freestyling an introduction to himself. He also tells the tale of dealing with the untimely death of his mom who was run down by a car, crossing the street, just a couple of weeks ago. His new album, Mama’s Boy, is due out any day.
Stokley Gray gave up a life working with developmentally challenged adults, with Downs’ Syndrome, to open a lighting company in New Orleans. As you might expect he has a compassionate perspctive on partying and presidential politics.
If you voted for President Trump and you’re already happy you won’t be any less happy after this Happy Hour. But if you’re worrying about the future of the country, this conversation will make you feel a lot better. Suggested use: consume with alcohol of choice.
