Santa’s Visit to Calandro’s – Wed. 12/6 | 5p-6p | Perkins Road & Sat. 12/16 | 1p-2p | Mid-City

San-ta-Claus-is-com-ing-to-Town!  December 6th, 2017 & December 16th, 2017 will be extra special days for us at Calandro’s.  Because we are participating in the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank’s “Share The Magic” Food Drive, Santa Claus has seen to it to make plans to stop by Calandro’s Supermarket on Perkins Road on Wednesday, December 6th from 5p-6p and Curbside Burgers right next to Calandro’s Mid-City on Saturday, December 16th from 12p-4p and visit to check in on our progress for Christmas food donations.  But he’s also coming in his big, Christmas-lit Coca-Cola #HolidaysAreComing 18-Wheeler Sleigh to hear about all the kiddos (and adults) wish lists for Christmas Day!  And if you’re solidly on his “Nice List” for 2017, Santa’s even going to be taking pictures with his big, beautiful, diesel Coca-Cola Sleigh, so bring your cameras when you come! Again - the Christmas-y details for Santa’s Stops: When?  Santa will be @ Calandro’s Perkins from 5pm to 6pm on Wednesday, December 6th, 2017 & @ Calandro’s Mid-City on Saturday, December 16th, 2017 from 12p-4p Where?  Santa’s bringing his big Christmas-lit Coca-Cola #HolidaysAreComing 18-Wheeler Sleigh to both Calandro’s locations Why?  To support the Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank’s “Share The Magic 2017” Food Drive, for which Calandro’s is selling $10 Holiday Food Donation Bags in the store So drop by either location, purchase one of our bright red “Share The Magic 2017” donation bags, and then let Santa know you did (while you take some great pictures with him) so he can chalk that up for you on his “Nice List” just in time for...
2017 Calandro’s King Cake Information Roundup!

2017 Calandro’s King Cake Information Roundup!

  It’s Mardi Gras.  And that means KING CAKE! The celebration between the Epiphany and Fat Tuesday (the day before Lent starts) when Justice, Faith, and Power is represented by Purple, Green, and Gold (respectively).  When carnivals, parades, balls, and just general partying of all sorts occurs in Louisiana - especially South Louisiana.  When the Louisiana national pastime of French Creole drinks and eats is magnified into just a few short months of the year.  And what most embodies this special season, Louisiana’s amazingly unique and wonderful food, and our penchant here for eating that food than… King Cake! And there’s lots of it…everywhere.  In 2015, we saw home bakeries, commercial bakeries, local grocery stores, big chain stores (ugh), donut shops, cupcake bakers, etc. all getting into the mix of making their own versions, styles, and takeoffs of the Louisiana Mardi Gras delicacy: King Cakes.  In fact, in the last few years NOLA.com put together an interactive 2015 King Cake Guide and Map for Baton Rouge where you can check out all that our area has to offer in the way of King Cakes (Check out our video from NOLA.com’s guide below.) And in 2016 and 2017 - its only gotten more creative and competitive out there.  As the sheer amount and creativity of Mardi Gras King Cakes in Baton Rouge evolves and grows, its actually good for us and GREAT for you.  It forces Calandro’s to stay ahead, up our game, and generally just ROCK with King Cakes even more than in the past.  So check out below for all of the details on Calandro’s King Cakes, and just how we’ve upped...
