New Web Series from Visit Baton Rouge stops at Restaurant IPO

So funny story... back in the day when I served as the Public Address Announcer for the LSU Soccer team I had the pleasure of meeting Mo Isom. Actually, I knew about her from the year before because she was one of the top recruited goalkeepers in the country coming out of high school and at the time I was dating the starting goalie for the team. Needless to say my girlfriend didn't feel too great about her job security. I was actually in the PA booth calling the game when Mo scored a goal from 90 yards out in 2008. Once the ball goes in, if you listen for the announcer yelling "GOOOOOOOOOOOOAL," that's me!


These days Mo is traveling the world doing motivational speaking and many other great things. This summer, Visit Baton Rouge put together a web series exploring places that stand out in Baton Rouge's cultural landscape. Everything from arts, entertainment, museums, dining, plantations, and more are uncovered, and Mo is the host that takes us through the journey. Of particular interest to me is the dining portion which brings Mo to Restaurant IPO to get in the kitchen with my good friend Chef Chris Wadsworth. Check them out here making the signature Bayou Eggs dish and being pretty funny. Bon Apetit.
