If just the announcement of a whole festival dedicated to fried chicken got you excited, then we’re positive you’re gonna bust with excitement now that the vendors have been announced for the first annual Fried Chicken Festival at Lafayette Square on Sunday, September 25!
 
In total, you’ll have 25…yes, 25 vendors to choose from. Whether you’re looking for your traditional chicken from The Original Fiorellas Café or McHardy’s Chicken & Fixin’, chicken and waffles from Milkfish or Atlanta-based Nana G.’s Chicken & Waffles, wings from Bayou Hot Wings or Koreole, or fried chicken with a twist from The Company Burger or Roux Bistro at the Sheraton New Orleans, the Fried Chicken Festival has got you covered!

It’s Friday, New Orleans, and we’re already looking forward to celebrating a ‘happier hour’! Here are our top picks (and a little lagniappe, of course) if you’re trying to get happier, too!


 
Mizado Cocina (5080 Pontchartrain Blvd.)
$0.10 margaritas (frozen or on the rocks) from 11:00am-2:00pm Monday-Friday. Now, you are limited to two and they must be purchased with an entrée (we HIGHLY suggest the beef tacos!), but hell, you can’t beat $0.10 for some lunch margaritas!







 
Lüke (333 St. Charles Ave.)
$0.75 FRESH oysters and half off wines, house liquors, and draft beers from 3:00pm-6:00pm EVERYDAY! If you’re an oyster lover, these are clean and come on a fresh, soft bed of ice. Can one eat too many oysters?!




 



 
Johnny Sanchez (940 Poydras St.)
Here’s another happy hour that you can enjoy seven days a week from 3:00pm-6:00pm! $5 street tacos (get the pork carnitas) and half off draft beer, house wines, well mixed drinks, and margarita pitchers. Tacos and a pitcher of margarita…is it 3:00 yet?!



 



 
The Columns Hotel (3811 St. Charles Ave.)
Don’t be fooled by The Columns’ fancy exterior…it’s just as chill as it is majestic. When the weather’s good, we love sitting on the porch and enjoying one of their $5 well drinks or wines (get some parmesan fries, too) from 5:00pm-7:00pm Monday-Friday.




 



 
And for a little lagniappe…
 
The Company Burger (4600 Freret St. and 611 O’Keefe Ave.)
We love The Company Burger because we just love to have a good burger once in a while. With Lent, The Company Burger even has a huge fried oyster sandwich for those of you abstaining from meat. From 3:00pm-6:00pm, enjoy your burger or sandwich with a half off draft beer or wine to wash it all down!

So, we’ve put together a list of our top Christmas gifts from those we’ve highlighted on IntheNOLA throughout the year:

The Native’s Guide has been your inside source to some great things lately: Temperature Lunch at the Palace Café and the Heat Index Dinner at Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse.
 
Well, last Friday, after the heavens opened and tried to cleanse the city, we were in the mood for a good burger. You know when you get those cravings and no matter what (hell or high water – and the water was really high last Friday), you won’t be satisfied til you get it. So we made the trek from Gentilly through Mid-City to Uptown to try out The Company Burger on Freret, one of the many burger places that have sprouted up in New Orleans in the past year. New Orleans, we had to ask ourselves why were we just now trying The Company Burger for the first time!
 
Let us explain…you know how ya mama or auntie or whoever makes them homemade patties and homemade French fries? And when you eat them, you get this indescribable feeling that neither McDonald’s nor Burger King can EVER give you? Well, we got that feeling at The Company Burger. We had “The Company Burger” (the classic American cheeseburger - two patties, bread & butter pickles, American cheese, and red onions), “The Single” (bread and butter pickles, American cheese, and red onions), “Lamb Burger” (feta, house basil mayonnaise, red onions, chili mint glaze), “The Company fries,” some “Cane Sugar Coca-Cola” in a bottle, and a can of Abita Amber. And so the journey began…
 
New Orleans, please don’t tell our mama or our auntie, but these might be the best damn burgers and fries in the whole city! Locally baked buns, antibiotic- and hormone-free beef, local produce (tomatoes, okra, etc.) when available, and a condiment bar to make you go a little crazy, it’s truly a shame that there’s not a Company Burger closer to the IntheNOLA offices in Mid-City (hey, maybe you guys wanna look into that :) ).  
 
Company Burger Fridays seems like a good tradition to start. Think they’ll make an IntheNOLA Burger…hey, stranger things have happened…
