The iconic bra line at the Flora-Bama collapsed last weekend

Happy Nappies! I can’t believe I have been the gossip hag at this rag for 19 years. Time flies when you are having this much fun! But I am really getting too old for this gig. All the kids in the clubs look at me like they think their mother is spying on them. And I am old enough to be their mother, so I see why they think that. Sigh.
But I’ll keep on, keepin’ on just for you, my gossip lovin’ fiends. And of course, next week I will have all of the scandalicious gossip from the Nappie Awards.
But until then, have a heaping helping of this week’s Boozie news. Enjoy!
The iconic “bra line” that has hung inside the Flora-Bama for years apparently broke last weekend — I told you this was “breaking” news. The line has been the home for the bras of local ladies and visiting ones alike who have thrown them up after a few too many Bushwhackers (presumably).
We are not sure if a DDD finally put it over the top or if the line had “structural damage,” but we did hear this occurred during Mobile native and singer-songwriter Wes Loper’s show. No word on if they plan to rehang the bras — nearly 1,000 of them — or if they will start fresh. If it’s the former, gloves are highly recommended for the person with that job.
You can see the full video of the “Great Bra Incident of 2021” on Wes Loper’s YouTube channel.
Panini Pete on DDD and GGG
This week’s Nappie Awards cover model, “Panini Pete” Blohme, was featured not once but twice on the Food Network this past weekend. These were reruns, but still, two appearances on national television in one weekend is pretty, pretty good.
First, Guy Fieri visited him at Sunset Pointe in Fairhope, where Pete served him up some delicious seafood stew and snapper throats for Guy’s show, “Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.” Then Pete was spotted in Flavortown Market, where he competed in “Guy’s Grocery Games” for a tailgate challenge. Should be a slam dunk from a chef from Alabama, right? We know all the things about tailgating, of course.
Wrong! Though Pete’s duck and shrimp dishes looked absolutely scrumptious, the judges complained they weren’t portable enough for a tailgate. Boo! I throw a flag on these judges.
You were robbed, Pete! But can you please send Boozie that duck recipe!
Well, kids, that’s all I have this week. Just remember, whether rain or shine, dramatic or scandalous or a plain ol’ bra avalanche, I will be there. Ciao!
