The operators deem the event — 6 p.m. Wednesday at the club at 8200 Willow Street — an opportunity to introduce themselves personally, to discuss the plans for the club, “to address concerns and answer any questions,” according to the invitation. Club owner Jimmy Anselmo said he also hopes it will be a forum for neighbors to show their support or perhaps sign a petition, as well as discuss the club’s operations.
In addition to neighbors and members of the surrounding Carrollton-Riverbend Neighborhood Association, City Councilwoman Susan Guidry has also been invited. The event is open to the public, Anselmo said.
Jambalaya and drinks will be served.
