Alabama Shrimp Cook-off

Mark your calendars for May 14th so you can attend the 8th annual Shrimp Cook-off which will be held in Bienville Square in Mobile. It’s a major fundraiser for HandsOn South Alabama, an organization that promotes volunteerism. Tickets are $10 and you can get them at any Bankcorp South location or the HandsOn South Alabama Office on Government Street. Call 251-433-4456 for more info.
This is a great festival to celebrate all of those who volunteer along the Gulf Coast including people who put in endless hours during and after the oil spill last year. It’s also a celebration of shrimp; a staple food and livelihood for many Gulf Coast residents. You gotta love Gulf shrimp.
It should be a great event this year and promises to feature over 30 different shrimp dishes. Wonder if Forrest Gump will be there.
