Countdown to “Cooking” – Cooking in Central Next Friday and Saturday

By  | 


    Arguably Central's largest Crawfish Boil happens at Cooking in Central next Friday night, March 23, starting at 5 PM.  The Navy Brass Band will be playing until 7 PM followed by dancing to the music of Carbon Copy Band from 7-9 PM.  The food and fun pick back up Saturday from 10-3 featuring Central's biggest cook-off, live, silent and progressive auctions, and live entertainment by local schools and groups.
    This year's event is at the Village at Magnolia Square on Lovett Road and will feature a few changes.  Anyone can use their meal ticket Saturday to enjoy the great cooking under the tent, but you now have the option of trading in your meal ticket for a bracelet that is your pass to mingle among the cooks and sample their food right in the cooking area.  Another change this year is that due to the serving of food and out of respect for other patrons who may fear dogs, no pets are allowed.
