Let’s be friends

So I have joined forces with the dark side thanks to Leslie of NOLA Eats (yes she is a bad influence across the board) and have started a Twitter account. Does that officially make me a twit? You can follow me at and don’t forget to become a fan on Facebook. Or you can just represent old school and get a Slow Southern Style NOLA neck tattoo in Old English.
