Austin's San Jose Hotel Helps with Gulf Clean-up

Austin's premiere boutique hotel, the San Jose Hotel, is pitching in to help their neighbors on the Third Coast.  On Friday July, 23rd they will be hosting a fund raiser in the form of a good old fashioned Gulf Coast shrimp boil.  There will also be live music by Louisiana native and Austin resident Papa Mali and Cajun revivalists and Grammy nominees the Lost Bayou Ramblers and shrimp plates are just $10 each.  Their stated goal for the event is to raise $30,000 in donations to the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

According to the web site
Liz Lambert (Bunkhouse MGMT), Steve Wertheimer (Continental Club) and Larry McGuire (Perla’s/Lambert’s) are hosting a day of food, music and education to raise awareness and money for the Gulf Coast via the Greater New Orleans Foundation Oil Spill Fund and the Gulf Restoration Network.

The event will take place at the Hotel San Jose/Jo’s Coffee parking lot on Friday, July 23 from 6 to 10:30 p.m.  The event is free to attend and will include live music by the Lost Bayou Ramblers, speakers from the Environmental Defense Fund  and a for-purchase shrimp boil dinner by Perla’s Seafood. All proceeds will benefit those affected by the oil spill.
