Happy birthday, Lucy! Babalu Tacos & Tapas will celebrate what would have been Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday on August 6. The day-long party will include a costume contest and feature specials on food and drinks. A portion of proceeds will benefit the Mustard Seed.
Opened in December 2010, the restaurant takes its name from the fictional Club Babalu owned by Ricky Ricardo in the 1950’s CBS television show I Love Lucy. Reruns of the show are projected onto the wall of the industrial-Cuban themed Fondren hotspot.
