Al Copeland Party in St Pete!!!

I talked to Big Al yesterday and he will be attempting to sponsor one of his Famous New Awlin's get togethers in St Pete for the Worlds. As the founder of Popeyes Race Team (and my best friend) he feels as though the tradition should continue. Although we have many obstacles to cross as 90% of his New Orleans restaurants were virtually destroyed as were his hotels, and his Commissaries, as he said " The Show must Go On!!" For those of you who have never been to one of his shin - dings Go!!
The food is to die for and he always has some great entertainment. As is his tradition if he can pull this off, he brings a rolling Boat/Car/Toy show to town. Always the Gentleman ever the Showman He brings a lot of Offshore tradition to the table and I want him to know publicly how much I appreciate this effort especially under the adverse conditions Katrina created.
