The Free Man celebrates its third anniversary tonight in grand style. The notorious house band, the Freeloaders will play from 7 to 10pm, followed by Roomsounds from 10pm until 2am. John Jay Myers just updated his menu a bit adding some interesting plays on his usual family Cajun recipes.

Standouts on the new menu items include several extremely tasty pasta dishes with one very exceptional vegetarian version, a sandwich with slow cooked brisket and a surprise fried egg center, and these amazing brisket sliders set atop the very best cornbread you will ever taste.  Then there is the new dessert.
