For nearly two years, I’ve hosted #JavanDoesBatonRouge right here on my website. But now as a broadcaster, it only made sense to bring the blog to video, something I’ll call a “community broadcast.” Same theme, same purpose, #JDBR remains my own little way of exploring my home of ten years–a booming city I long overlooked. I have an endless list of places to feature–some stores, some restaurants…some well-known, some not-so-much. For this first broadcast, we go the The Roux House for Red Beans & Rice Mondays with The Michael Foster Project.
#RBRM runs from 6 – 9pm every Monday, with a rotation of chefs serving a buffet of the Louisiana tradition. Sometimes, Michael Foster even cooks them himself! The Roux House is located on 3rd Street, right next to the Manship Theater/Shaw Center in Downtown Baton Rouge. Just look for the mural; you can’t miss it.
As a producer and designer in the Baton Rouge media market, I invite you to check out the new virtual set I created for ‘MyScene TV,’ a local lifestyle show returning to WAFB/WBHX 16 very soon. In addition, I produced segments for ‘BRCC Today,’ a talk show airing Fridays at 5pm on Metro21. Episodes are available for both on the linked YouTube pages. Please read my other blogs, follow me on Twitter and check out my work on here, YouTube and SoundCloud.
