March has an "R" in it buddy, choke down some raw slimers. Where is the adventure if they are cooked?

The whole R thing only has to do with the reproductive cycles of oysters. Most are farm raised now so they are safe to eat

Only thing about BR that interested me was the levees holding back the Mississippi. Take a hike up one!

I grew up in SWLA. Love the food.

Since its business I assume you will get to expense it so go to Louisiana Lagniappe or Ruffinos. Lagniappe has awesome chargrilled oysters. Ruffinos probably has better food IMO and they have crabmeat cheesecake. Mike Andersons has good oysters also and its a bit nicer place. Jubans is also really good.

If you want something more casual just head to the Chimes. Hard to beat, also acme isn't bad either.

And as its mentioned above you can get oysters pretty much all year in Louisiana. If you are down there in a month you'll be hitting prime time crawfish season. Its been slow so far with all of the cold weather they aren't coming out of their holes.

Last I was in BR was for the St Patricks day parade and a crawfish boil/feast. Everyone should experience that once in their lives.

My mother-in-law is from Chauvin, LA. She was up here last week and made us a huge pot of seafood gumbo. Freezer is stocked for the next couple of months. Y'all don't know what you're missing with the raw oysters. Try to get ahold of some WA state, BC, or Alaska cold water oysters. They're much smaller and have a sweet taste to them. Much more delicious than Gulf Coast oysters, though I love those, too.

Shoot me a PM. I live in BR. Maybe I can track down another Rover guy who got transferred to here and we can all get together.

The St. Patrick's Day parade is by far the best day here.

I'm from BR and I agree with the above. Except the most interesting thing are the coeds. Go to the chimes and get plowed and enjoy the scenery. Parrains is good food too. St Pattys day is awesome, especially if the weathers good. You should defiantly hook up with one of the local boys and get down.
