Easy to get to, here’s a map.  https://www.yellowpages.com/listings/504059315/directions

For those that were planning on staying at the park it’s not far so that’ll still work out fine.

Everyone pitches in to make the day something to remember.

Great company, good food, door prizes.

When you’re pretty sure you’ll be coming post on this topic.  If you plan on bringing anything to eat and/or door prizes I’ll list those as well. That way folks can see approx. how many coming, what folks are bringing and what’s needed.

  Nancy and I will attend again this year and will bring food and door prizes.


   I haven't been around much lately but will be dropping in more soon.  Work, family and some illness has been slowing me down and keeping me unfocused.  Soon  that will be not the case.   ;)

Opportunity is missed by most because it comes dressed in overalls and looks like work.

  I always miss this after years of making it my everyday stop.  I am working hard to get back to it.  I miss too many people and things going on when I am not here.   ;)

  Anything from Papa Bourque's  is fine with me. One of my favorite stops on my way down to New Orleans.  I even go out my way through Port Barre just to stop there!     ;D

Looking for new ideas/activities for the "get together".  Any input would be appreciated.

Like last year we’ll probably meet up and go eat out Friday night.  I have a different place in mind, The Crawfish Barn http://www.crawfishbarn.com/index.html

I'm coming too, not sure what I'm bringing yet.

Do ya'll want to cook a Pastalaya or Jambalaya?  I'll cook and bring the set up. The cooker is an old cast iron kettle about 18 gallons so we can feed 40 people easy and if you haven't tried pastalaya yet then you're missing out. We can cook anything we want in it so the options are there for gumbo, etoufee, sauce Piquant. We can even do cracklins if ya'll want to go that far.

Rob I was thinking along the same lines as this. so people can bring items instead of a dish.. I can volunteer the sausage.. also my first choice would be a normal Jambalaya, I'm a rice kind of guy not into noodles or pasta. but I would go with what the people want. You could even hang tight until it gets closer to see if its Jambalaya or Gumbo weather and act accordingly.

Michelle (Cajuntransplant) and Ronald will be there, God willing. Always enjoy attending. It's like a family reunion every year. Not sure what we will bring, but for sure a door prize and some type of food item.

This weekend Mary and I went to the Crawfish Barn in Vidrine to test the food and to make sure it’s still good.  That’s where we’re planning on going the evening before the get together.  I was not disappointed.  Very few restaurants have me craving their food the next day, this is one of em.  The grilled catfish and shrimp couldn’t have been any better.  It’s a big place but you still have to go early.

It's about 20 minutes from Chicot Park.
