VRC has always been an organization that thinks out of the box, especially when it comes to fundraising.  So when we were given the opportunity to literally jump in and take over a failing bar business….we said BOTTOMS UP!  "Back in the day", Tia ran a very well known and successful country western bar for many years so this was like "getting back up on the horse".
THE TAHYO TAVERN is located in Chalmette, LA (minutes from New Orleans) where our motto is:  "You drink, they eat" and in a town where drinking, parties and parades are an everyday thing…we just thought it fit right in.  Now you're probably wondering what a "tahyo" is…'s a Cajun word for "a big, hungry dog" and we sure got lots of them in our care! 
So if you're planning on visiting VRC or even the City of New Orleans, make sure to stop by The Tahyo even if it's just to buy a t-shirt or take pics of the coolest bar in the state…okay maybe even the country. 🙂    For more info go to
