Way too early in the morning--but worth it!

For all you SCCLL techies out there, here’s a great opportunity to experience a hearty New Orleans breakfast in the company of like-minded colleagues (and a not-so-subtle attempt at attracting new committee members). Join the SCCLL Technology Committee at Mother’s on Monday, July 16, 2007 at 7AM.

Info from the LAC Dining Guide (http://www.lb5.uscourts.gov/AALL/conventionctrdining.pdf) about Mother’s:

401 Poydras
Hours: 7 days a week: 7am-10pm
Cost: $

After more than a half century, the daily queue that forms at Mother's sandwich counter is no doubt as long as ever. To many tourists and convention-goers, Mother's is the quintessential source of po' boy sandwiches, jambalaya, gumbo and hefty breakfasts with a side of home-style biscuits. You'll find considerable disagreement among locals, especially those who remember Mother's in its true glory days two or three decades ago, when the eggs and grits were never cold, as they sometimes are these days. Still, few would challenge the goodness of today's po' boys, made with beef and ham cooked on the premises and laden with shredded cabbage and, in the case of the roast beef, the meat shreds and pan drippings known as debris. The chicken gumbo is a winner, as well. As for the methodology of getting served, order somehow triumphs over chaos, and everyone apparently finds a seat, although it may be a stool at the shallow counter along the wall.

So, if you want a great breakfast, and are willing to meet at the unearthly hour of 7AM on Monday, July 16, add this to your busy, busy AALL schedule!
