Thank you Bernie's Southern Bistro for hosting the Mysti Krewe of Nimbus yesterday for our TV segments on Good Day Oregon On the Go With Joe bright and early! Bernie's is supplying a taste of delicious Cajun cooking at the Ball Saturday Feb 9th, 2013. We have the segments captured off the TV here on YouTube. And they are correct, even at 5AM we know how to throw a good party. So come join us at the Ball this Saturday!
