Justin Kennedy of Parkway in New Orleans will be making a 100-foot shrimp po-boy Saturday for the Biloxi Seafood Festival.
"Making it as long as my grandfather's shrimp boat," Justin said on Facebook.
Gee, I used to think the 3-footers back in the day at George's in Biloxi were enormous.
Justin is an occasional guest host for Tom Fitzmorris on "The Food Show" on 3WL Radio in New Orleans and I've heard him give shoutouts to people in Biloxi.
Never miss a local story.
This got me curious about why a New Orleans guy would do this, so I got in contact with him through Facebook last week.
"I was born and raised in Biloxi," he said. "If you know any Kennedys around there, I'm related to them."
It just so happens I did go to school in Biloxi with some Kennedys in the 1960s.
Now that Justin is making a 100-foot po-boy for the Biloxi Seafood Festival, I'm wondering if next time he could make a 100-foot surf and turf with extra cheese, pickles and mayo, and Cliff Kirkland wonders if Justin would open an East Parkway in Biloxi.
I wish I could make it to see the 100-foot shrimp po-boy, but I plan to go to the New Orleans Po-Boy Fest in November and then head right to Parkway for one of the restaurant's po-boys.
