    So, SU is doing their thing in NOLA Friday night from 7-10pm. Sounds awesome, but my group is heading to BR sometime Friday.

    If there's interest, I'll find a good spot to reserve for a little Friday night get-together.

    CajunCuse hooked us up with a list of solid bars, and I'll check each of them out today, but if anyone has a favorite, or see's one they think will work best, let me know!

    TJ Ribs - locations in Baton Rouge and Prairieville (just down Interstate 10 from Baton Rouge
    Ruffino's, 18811 Highland Rd, Baton Rouge
    Parrain's Seafood, Perkins Rd
    The Chimes (just off campus) & The Chimes East (Coursey Blvd)
    Mark Anderson's Seafood, West Lee Dr
    Ralph & Kacoo's (Bluebonnet Blvd)
    Sammy's Grill (Highland Rd)
    Galatoire's Bistro (Perkins Rd)
    Acme Oyster House (Perkins Rd)
    Walk-On's Bistreaux & Bar

    I'll edit this list with Links later today.

    Was thinking 7-10pm, Friday night, but again, open to suggestions.

    So here's what I need from you...
    If you're interested in meeting up, let me know so I can get an idea of how much room we need
    Let me know if you have a preference on location (walk-on's has pretty ladies)
    Need a different time?
    Any other questions or concerns you may have.

    We're in for 2. Looked at a few of these and The Chimes looked pretty good.

    Sent emails to The Chimes, and Walk On's. We'll see what I hear back.

    Told them we were thinking 20-50 people?

    Could be a pretty solid group of my friends in the area that would be interested. bnoro is always looking for new bars to be kicked out of.

    Absolutely. I'll send a text to the group tonight and figure out everyone's timing. I know my girlfriend and I are driving from NO to BR Friday mid-day so the two of us will most likely be in.

    Appears we posted almost simultaneously, and we are no where near each other.

    I visited the LSU board a couple months ago and introduced myself, and the overwhelmingly consensus was that Chimes is awesome.

    Someone on the LSU board just mentioned this:

    "Not sure what time you will be getting into your casino hotel Friday afternoon, but on Fridays, the downtown has free outdoor concerts a couple of blocks from where you will be staying called Live After Five. I think the bands usually play from about 5 to around 7 or 8. Beer and vendor trucks set up nearby. Nice oyster bar nearby, Jolie Pearl. Decent sushi restaurant at the top of the building housing the Manship Theater and art museum called Tsunami. Nice rooftop bar up there where you can have a drink or two and watch the sun set over the Mississippi River. Can see TigerStadium from there and they light it up at night. Some good restaurants downtown like Stroube's, etc. Hotel people can give you some recommendations and directions. "

    What if we all met down there? Hit up some beer trucks, some dancing (The band that night plays 70s funk, me and my girl are coming to twist) , and maybe some rooftop bar action?

    My only concern is finding a place that won't mind 20-30 of us all rolling in at once. I heard back from Chimes, they thought I wanted to rent their wine tasting room, which is closed due to construction. Swamped at work, but planning on calling a few places this week.

    If we did this outdoorsie thing, we wouldnt have to worry about space?

    I'm pretty sure no matter where we all end up meeting, Ol Cusetroop and his lady will be at Live after Five until the meetup.

    This is your sister - Parrain's is my favorite but you can't beat The Chimes' crabcake sandwich & beer variety. Also, I messed up . . . it's Mike Anderson's, not Mark (must have been thinking of you.) Have a great time in our old hometown!!

    Well maybe we will have to do Parrain's Thursday night and The Chimes on Friday. Tailgate Saturday and Deanie's in NOLA on Sunday. Don't tell my doctor!

    Is there a tailgate planned for Saturday?

    My 8-year-old son and I will be driving into BR late Friday afternoon. Are we looking at a bar proper for Friday night, or a sit-down? Not sure my son is OK for a full-fledged bar.

    Hoping that there is some tailgate planned. If not, we'll probably walk up to an LSU tailgate with beer in hand and talk football for a couple hours with the enemy.
