The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

One of the topics in the national debate these days is trade. Meaning imports and exports.
Onn Out to lunch, Pater and his guests take a look at two of the most obscure imports into the United States, and New Orleans. One from Britain, the other from Italy.
Francis Palumbo joins Peter to talk about the British import. Francis is a member of the board of The Crescent City Blues Rugby Football club.
T.J. Stranova is an authority on the Italian import. T.J is President of the Italian American Bocce Club of Greater New Orleans.
Yes, while the rest of the business community is talking about free trade, NAFTA, The TPP, and tariffs, Out to Lunch is taking a break from all that to talk about imported ball games. Rugby. And Bocce.
