Pableaux Johnson’s Red Beans & Rice Pop-up Suppers Are Coming to San Antonio & Dallas, Texas!

Get your tickets now to “pass a good time” Louisiana style with Pableaux Johnson at his famous Red Beans Road Show Pop-up Suppers, now on their way to Texas. Pableaux serves a traditional Louisiana Monday night meal of Red Beans and Rice – inviting diners to break cornbread and make memories with friends and strangers alike. And it’s all for a good cause! A portion of the evening’s proceeds support a great local charity.

“When you sit around Johnson’s table… you’re not supposed to fiddle with your phone. You talk. You meet people. You drink. You eat. You remember what it’s like to connect with strangers over a meal.” –  The Washington Post

Pableaux Johnson leads the “shenanigans” and serves his guests Red Beans & Rice made with Camellia Brand Red Kidney Beans.

Good, Simple Food & New Friends

Louisiana food writer, photographer and “general n’er-do-well” Pableaux Johnson meets up with local restaurant chefs in each town or city he visits, to host an informal, family-style feast featuring “good, simple food, camaraderie and appropriate misbehavior.” 

Pableaux Is a Hoot!

Buy your tickets and show up to eat, drink and shoot the breeze with culinary and culture enthusiasts. As ringleader and organizer of the shenanigans, Pableaux gives a short presentation on Louisiana foodways that will leave you hankering for all things Louisiana, and then it’s a fun night of breaking bread (Pableaux’s grandpa’s skillet cornbread, that is), eating down-home, delicious food and drinking a cold beer with a roomful of friendly strangers. 

Local Chefs Are in on It

Pableaux cooks his signature Red Beans & Rice made with Camellia Brand Red Kidney Beans, and his local chef partners serve up a simple starter (like deviled eggs or hand pies) and a dessert (like bread pudding or homemade pie).
