That would have been either Axemoor or Seleone (Gulfport, Miss.), though it certainly sounds like something Axemoor's baron would have done. <G> Southern Hospitality-You Will Get Fed Here. 
I no longer reside in Axemoor. I am now in the Barony of Iron Mountain (Birmingham, Al) We are a Barony of Cooks, Brewers?and Dancers. I fence...with occasional delusions of being able to cook for hundreds. 
If the cards finally read right and all goes as planned, I will be at Gulf Wars. With Rain gear. <GRIN> 
I'm a Vet of Gulf Wars VIII-Engulf Wars. 
Since we camp on the otherside of Axemoor from y'all, it should be easy enough to find each other. If I'm not there, there are?3 other places I will be-Fencing Field, Artisian's Row or shopping....

Helen described "South Louisiana" coffee:?
<<< I grew up in Metarie, just two blocks away from New Orleans Parish.?
Cafe Du Monde has a hot chocolate that will spoil you for ANY of the boxed stuff. Rich, creamy and chocolatey, we are talking Serious Hot Chocolate, here. >>>?
ohhhh. Sounds wonderful.?
<<< Just imagine, if you will...hot, fresh fried beignets, covered in powdered sugar, and hot, rich, wonderful chocolate. What else do you need on a cold January evening, right after watching the Sugar Bowl? >>>?
Ah, something exciting and wonderful, after something boring and dull. :-)?
<<< I think South Louisiana is where I learned to Not Drink the Coffee-unless you like the thought of not sleeping for the next three days! <LOL> >>>.?
Sounds like something useful for Pennsic! or Gulf Wars. Are you going to the upcoming Gulf Wars? My barony camps next to the Barony of Axe Mor, the group from New Orleans. It would be nice to meet you or some of the other folks from there. Perhaps even try some of this coffee. I've had regular coffee three times in my life and I thought all of it was rather bland and thin and diluted. I did try a Coffee Latte(?) for the first time two years ago at one of the Pennsic coffee houses and several times at a coffee house here in Austin where a friend sings. *That* I like. Coffee but with chocolate and some whipped cream.?
Gulf War I or II, some group from Louisiana or at least Meridies brought crawfish and had a crawfish boil. This was the first time I had more than one or two. What I ate would have probably cost a small fortune at a restaurant. :-) It was wonderful! I have seen crawfish start to show up in my local grocery stores at what sound like reasonable prices. Until you realize you throw more than half of the crawfish away. I think I've seen frozen crawfish tail meat too, but I don't remember the price on that.?
