Goner Message Board / ???? / What's in Baton Rouge?
Posted: Apr 26, 2011 12:05 pm
 
I'm going to visit my wife in Louisiana a couple times over the next month and a half...What's cool in Baton Rouge? and What's in New Orleans around May 28-June 5th? I don't wanna be bored on the bayou? It's been 15+ years since my last visit.

Hmmmm, Baton Rouge is pretty lame. There are a couple of bars, the Red Star and Spanish Moon that have shows and are supposedly cool. However, there is a lot of neat stuff in that area if you are able to drive maybe 30-60 minutes in any direction. Cajun stuff, and southern oddities mostly. Lots of good festivals this time of year.

Guitar Wolf is playing NOLA on June 6th. Whoops!

Yeah, there are some decent thrift stores on Florida Blvd heading east. Oh and this Frostop downtown looked pretty nice, I just went to a conference by there last month.

State capitol building. Huey P. Long is buried there. Bullet holes still visible in wall where he got capped.

The old state capitol aka The Castle is nice too.

I am planning to make it to this sometime soon:

http://www.hrsa.gov/hansens/museum/

National leprosy museum on the site of one of the world's last leper colonies (closed in 1998). In Carville, LA (hometown of James Carville, and named for his grandfather), which is midway between Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

There's a bunch of plantations and shit around there too.

National leprosy museum

Been there twice. It's a nice drive up River Road. The HD Museum gets very few visitors so they're eager to give a guided tour gratis. A small graveyard is out back with the headstones of many patients from all over the world.

The old corner general store of James Carville's grandfather is just down the road from the museum. Got some good fixins.

I'll be in NOLA for the spits at siberia.

Anyone going?
