Who’s Got the Baby?

Bread Winners” celebrates Mardi Gras with King Cakes and other bakery treats
Bread Winners King Cake

The king cake has its roots in medieval France and Spain. In colonial Louisiana, Creoles celebrated this time of year with the bal du roi (king’s ball), where they served a fancy cake with a bean placed inside. The person who found the bean in his or her piece of cake became the king or queen of the next ball, creating a series of balls that would culminate with the final grand event on Mardi Gras evening. Over the years, the practice spread beyond Mardi Gras royalty. The person who received the prize — which instead of a bean could be a nut, a coin or even a ring — would be king or queen for the day and in charge of hosting the next party or supplying the next king cake, a tradition that remains today. The most common token used today is a small plastic baby.

Mardi Craw at “The Rustic” this Fat Tuesday

Cajun crawfish boil, live music and more on tap for Mardi Gras, Feb. 9

The Rustic Mardi Gras Poster

The Rustic is celebrating Mardi Gras bayou-style this year with an authentic Cajun crawfish boil all day on Tuesday, Feb. 9. But this is The Rustic, so you know they’ll be serving up a lot more than Louisiana’s best spicy crawfish, sold by the pound with potatoes and corn, along with plenty of Andouille and chicken jambalaya.
In addition to their full menu of farm-fresh, homestyle dishes, The Rustic will offer face painting and a photo bus from 4 – 8 p.m. and feature live music on stage with R&B/soul artist Tameca Jones beginning at 5 p.m. Tameca has been called the “Queen of Austin Soul” for her captivating voice and crowd-pleasing performances at such venues as the 2015 Austin City Limits Festival.
“Fat Tuesday is a day to let the good times roll, so we’re going to throw a party that will make you glad you didn’t make the trip to New Orleans this year,” said Kyle Noonan, co-owner of FreeRange Concepts, creator of The Rustic. “We’ll be boiling up a ton of crawfish with all the fixins, just like the Cajuns do, and we’ll have plenty of great music and fun activities that everyone will enjoy.”
In addition, starting Feb. 8, The Rustic will now feature live music every night of the week, extending its previous five-day schedule to Mondays and Tuesdays. Thanks to its new climate-controlled, covered patio, live performances can be enjoyed at The Rustic rain or shine, regardless of the temperature outside.
With its casual atmosphere, live musical acts and unique, full-service dining experience featuring farm-fresh, homestyle dishes and a Texas-sized selection of wines, spirits and 40 beers on tap, The Rustic has carved a distinctive niche among Dallas restaurants. The concept is the brainchild of Noonan, Sepkowitz and Texas country artist Pat Green, whose love of the outdoors and live music helped bring The Rustic to life. The result is a fun and relaxing concert and dining experience from a phenomenal patio, all under the big Texas sky.
