BP oil spill money used to lure Bravo’s Top Chef to New Orleans

How should BP pay to help the Gulf Coast recover? Cleaning up beaches is one thing, but should we be using BP money to bring Top Chef to New Orleans?

The city and state tourism folks paid Bravo $375,000 to have season 11 filmed here with $200,000 of that money coming from BP. Here’s the reaction we’re getting on our WGNO Facebook page:

Rob says, “Food job, Louisiana! You spent money appropriately and wisely.”

Jamie adds, “I love Top Chef, but we shouldn’t waste money this state needs on a TV show.”

And Jennifer says, “If they highlight Gulf seafood, then it’s cool.”
