As mentioned on the Y&H food events calendar yesterday, Cajunator food truck operator Lloyd Blanchard is teaming up with his home state’s Louisiana Seafood Promotion & Marketing Board on a free oyster po’boy giveaway at lunchtime today outside the Navy Yard Metro station. Anyone purchasing gumbo or red beans and rice is entitled to a half fried-mollusk sandwich at no additional charge. As a bonus, you also get some Mardi Gras beads. The promo runs from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.
