Yats owner Yon Davis sells a lot of Cajun-style deep-fried turkeys for Thanksgiving, even hosting an "open fryer" setup for people to fry their own birds in, the culinary equivalent of operating a shooting range ― a safe, controlled environment to help customers achieve one of America's most dangerous culinary feats.

This Easter (April 4), Davis is selling deep-fried turkeys again. For $99, you can purchase a turkey platter that should serve at least six ― a 15-pound bird (it's not free-range, sorry), marinated in Creole spices and then fried, as well as smothered okra, dirty rice, and corn bread. You can also buy just the turkey for $54, or add on New Orleans classics like red beans and rice, gumbo, or bread pudding.

The deadline to order a meal is Good Friday, April 2. Check Yats' Easter catering menu for details and prices, or call Davis at (504) 231-8612.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
