frame presents  Mardi Gras, A Louisiana Creole Dinner  with Lula’s Louisiana Cookhouse 
When the words Crawfish Etoufee and Pecan Whiskey Sauce run in the same sentence, you already know the night’s a winner. In perfect time to celebrate Mardi Gras, we bring you creole and southern cuisine from a Michigan hidden gem, in the unexpected tiny cool town of Owosso in Shiawassee County (population 15,000). Meet Lula’s Louisiana Cookhouse, work of executive chef John Beilfuss and his wife Morgan – who collectively have one goal – to bring from scratch creole, cajun and southern comforts – to the dining scene, serving imaginative dishes like  Andouille Jambalya, Fried CatFish Po’ Boys and Banana Foster Waffles. As we said, Owosso? An unusual location for such a thoroughly modern destination for “deep, lavish southern flavours” with such heart and soul. Born out of frame’s love to collaborate for celebratory pleasure, we’re curating a feast with the Lula team, before Lent season begins. Full of chaotic charm, we’re quite confident you can skip booking a flight to The French Quarter this year. The French call it Mardi Gras; the Brazilian and Caribbean cultures call it, Carnival. For us, this is the custom of power-loading our gluttonous behavior before Ash Wednesday. Plan on innovative imbibing : our beverage team will be slinging New Orleans’ famed Sazerac’s, Vieux Carré cocktails and The Ramos Gin Fizz as well as a live blues jazz band, whooping it up inside frame to keep the spirit alive. Indulge! Let us throw a few strands of colorful beads around your neck. Might as well get ahead of the game, Fat Tuesday will be coming quick.
