ENTERTAINMENT CELEBRITIES LAUNCH “CATFISH ALLEY” RESTAURANT AT THE HAWAIIAN MARKETPLACE ON THE LAS VEGAS STRIP

Music legends Mr. LaMonte McLemore, founder of the world famous singing group, “The 5th Dimension”, Mr. Bubba Knight of “Gladys Knight and the Pips”, Mr. Jackie Jackson of the “Jackson 5”, have joined actor Richard Roundtree of the Movie “Shaft”, and a team of business and entertainment pioneers for the Grand Opening of the new Catfish Alley restaurant on Saturday, November 26, 2011 at the Hawaiian Marketplace.

And it’s open to the public!

“No matter whether your taste in music is country, jazz, or soul, everyone is going to go crazy when they get their first bite of our southern catfish” said Otis Williams one of the original members of the super group of “The Temptations” and one of the eight celebrity co-owners of Catfish Alley. “We decided that it made no sense that the best catfish in the country wasn’t available on the Las Vegas strip. So we brought the best catfish chef in the country, Ken Browder, and his Catfish Alley restaurant to the strip and told him to do his thing!”

Catfish Alley Restaurant was awarded the “2010 Best Seafood Restaurant in Las Vegas” by the “Las Vegas Review Journal Newspaper”.

Bubba Knight, says that “after traveling all over the U.S. eating southern food, that he’s happy to be involved with the new Catfish Alley restaurant, because when it comes to good food, you don’t have to “take a midnight train to Georgia” to get some fabulous catfish. In Las Vegas “you get the right thing baby at Catfish Alley!”

Other partners in this sizzling new venture include J.D. Nicholas of “The Commodores”. Clarence Collins of “Little Anthony and the Imperials, Sonny Charles of “The Checkmates”,

Concert Promoter, David Gest, Pastor C.W. Noble of the 8-million member National Baptist Convention USA, and Mr. Maurice Barksdale, Real Estate Manager and Developer, and others shown on the list of Investors who also invested in the expansion.

The original Catfish Alley restaurant was opened in 2006, by Ken Browder, his wife Ruth, and their son Chris, and now operates in the “Fresh and Easy Shopping Center location at Silverado Ranch and Bermuda.

And this new second location will open on the Las Vegas Strip on November 26, 2011 in the Hawaiian Marketplace at 3743 Las Vegas Blvd, S.

The opening will be highlighted with a live remote radio broadcast by 105.7 FM “The Oasis” between the hours of 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m.

LaMonte and his partner, Mr. Roderick Gaines, a retired corporate executive formerly with J.P. Morgan Chase Bank, Cendant Corporation, Trans World Airlines, and the originator of the highly successful “Georgia Brown’s” Restaurant concept in Washington, DC, formed the Restaurants Investments USA,LLC that raised the required capital to finance the new venture.

Gaines says “we want everyone to say… “A Vegas trip ain’t complete without a Catfish Alley dining treat!”
