Martinis 2016 is a fun way to celebrate the work of Healing House; Hope for Grieving Children support their mission to provide grief support for Acadiana children who have experienced the death of a parent or sibling. All services are provided free of charge to the children and families in Acadiana.

Join CJ and Debbie Ray on Monday mornings as they visit with all the participating restaurants and sample their martinis. Then on Tuesday, you can cast your vote for Lafayette’s ABSOLUT Best Martini. $1 = 1 Vote! The money is your way of donating to Healing House – vote often and as many times as you want either at healing-house.org or at each restaurant.

This week, Shannon from Walk Ons visited with CJ and Debbie Ray and made their Martinis 2016 contest cocktail, the Candy Store Martini!

In addition to the Final Showdown taking place August 20, 2016 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, patrons of the ‘Tini Tuesday Tour will receive a complimentary signature martini with the purchase of an entrée at each Tuesday tour spot. Martini vouchers can be printed here.
