Lagniappe Weekend Rundown: May 9-11, 2014

If you’re making weekend plans, there are lots of fun things happening on the Gulf Coast. Rob Holbert, co-editor of the Lagniappe, stopped by Studio 10 to give us his “Top 5”. 

Check them out here:

  • If you’re a big fan of local seafood and great music, Friday night at the temple downtown may be just your thing. The Alabama Coastal Federation is hosting The Coastal Seafood Craze, which will be chock full of great seafood dishes from various local restaurants and caterers. You’ll also be entertained by one of the hottest bands around — The Mulligan Brothers. The fun starts at 5 p.m., coinciding with the First Friday Artwalk downtown and tickets are just $25.
  • The undead will walk and drink their way through downtown Mobile Saturday night with the third annual Zombie Pub Crawl that begins at 3 p.m. Aimlessly amble over to The Bar and get started with drink and food specials from The Royal Scam and Heroes. The Zombie Ball will start at 7 p.m. at The Brickyard. Tickets are $25.
  • Saturday is also Stamp out Hunger Day, hosted by the National Association of Letter Carriers, Bay Area Food Bank, United Way of Southwest Alabama and the AFL-CIO. To participate, place non-perishable food items in the bag left by your letter carriers beside your mailbox Saturday morning. If you haven’t received a bag, you can deliver food directly to Bay Area Food Bank.
  • Saturday is also a great day to add a member to your family. The Haven animal shelter is having a pet adoption at Petsmart at the Eastern Shore Plaza. The Haven will be on site to help potential adopters. The animals have been pulled from shelters across Baldwin County and the event starts at 11 a.m. and goes until 3 p.m.
  • And over in the Pensacola area the Palafox Wine Walk will take place Saturday evening from 4 – 7. This is an opportunity to sample newly released wines from boutique vendors while strolling between some of the best shops on Palafox. It’s also an opportunity to pre-order some of the wines you like. It takes place at 41 North Jefferson St. in downtown Pensacola. Tickets are $40.
