Louisiana

Cajun weekendToday I’m kicking off Cajun Week for no other reason Cajun wedding weekendthan this past weekend some friends and I drove a looooonngg way to Cajun country for the wedding of another friend’s daughter — and had such a blast we’d turn around and do it again in a second, despite the seemingly endless marathon of driving on the Natchez Trace. Since I still can hear the zydeco music and taste the andouille sausage, I’m sharing with you all. First, can you guess where we were? This is the view out of our eighth-story casino-hotel window, looking toward the lake for which this town is named — or maybe it’s the other way around. Anyway, the restaurant pictured is a very cool and tasty downtown eatery just around the corner from the breathtakingly beautiful Catholic church where the wedding was held. Sadly, I don’t have any Cajun prizes to give away to the winner, but you’ll have the satisfaction of proving you know your Louisiana geography. And please come back all week — I’ve got upcoming posts on Cajun food, decorating and wedding styles along with all the gambling tips I picked up in my (brief) career as a high-roller. You don’t want to miss it!

  1. Lovely view out you hotel window. I always get stuck with the parking lot or worse. I’m looking forward to the rest of the week.

  2. Lake Charles is correct! Good job, M Denise C! The view out of the window was so lovely, although we apparently were getting outer bands of a tropical disturbance and it rained all weekend. But nothing can dampen that Cajun spirit! Thanks to all for playing along.

  3. P.S. And the restaurant was Pujo’s, a great place in downtown Lake Charles that was cool and funky and had delicious fresh-tasting sandwiches and seafood. Highly recommended.
