Editorial Review

Best reason to eat out

Is there such a thing as picnicker's remorse? If you pack a basket for the Swamp Romp at Wolf Trap, you may regret the decision after glancing at the menu boards touting chicken gumbo with rice, Cajun crawfish, muffulettas, pecan pralines and other Louisiana treats. It's a pitch-perfect complement to an afternoon of concerts headlined by the renowned New Orleans singer, pianist and composer Allen Toussaint. Also appearing are Big Sam's Funky Nation and the always crowd-stirring, calorie-burning Dirty Dozen Brass Band. Count on a parade -- or two.
