Man, does Friends of City Park really know how to throw a great party! And the best part about it is that it raises money for City Park capital improvements…specifically a new food truck for the Park. Have you ever been in a remote part of the Park without food or beverage and thought, “Boy, I sure could use something to eat or drink!” Well, the Park hears you! The Park is purchasing a food truck and will name it 'Parker's Express' (named after the Park's mascot Parker the Raccoon). This great addition to the Park will be paid for in part with funds raised from this year’s Martini Madness. Martini Madness is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year on September 20, 2014, in the Park's Arbor Room at Popp Fountain from 7 to 11 pm. The event is going to be red hot! Over the years the event has grown in popularity and we want you and your friends there! With over 30 kinds of martinis and delectable bites served up by 20 New Orleans restaurants, Martini Madness is sure to please everyone. Get your tickets now: http://www.friendsofcitypark.com/Events/martinimadness.htm and we'll see you there!
