Irma Thomas waited tables at New Orleans Pimlico Club back in the late 50s-early 60s. She had four kids and needed the dough to keep food on the table for all the hungry mouths.
She was a teenager.
Nowadays her work status is a mite different as she is the reigning queen of Southern Soul. Others may claim Aretha Franklin holds the title but here in Louisiana we know who the real boss is.
Tomorrow, November 11th 2014, you can boss Thomas around just like you do all the other waitresses in New Orleans as the Queen will be schlepping chow to the tables at the Hyatt Regency on Loyola Avenue in the CBD.
$75 is the tariff.
