After my hair styling session, we headed to Lafayette and settled into our hotel. Our hosts David (who Mase does some work with) and Kelly, his wife, were the sweetest, most fun couple! They took us to a mexican restaurant, La Fonda's, that they claimed had awful food but great margaritas. It was definitely the Lafayette hot spot! We had to wait nearly an hour to get a table, but the margs and chit chat helped us pass the time! And yes, the food was awful, besides the fried rabbit appetizer that we ate that was actually quite delish!
Saturday was game day! We loaded the car and headed to Baton Rouge! They had quite the tailgate set-up when we arrived and they introduced us to a little concoction they like to call "Tiger Juice" also nicknamed, "The Creep":Looks delicious right!? Ha, um no! But it def amped up our tailgating experience! ;)
After a few cups of Creep, Mason and I walked around campus for a bit and saw some of the sights...
The stadium:Mike the Tiger Mascot statue:Anyway, we went to watch the game after 6 hours of tailgating/tiger juicing...yikes! It was a pretty uneventful game. The Tigers didn't play very well and it was a low-scoring game (13-3), so not much action! The highlight was when our row, for whatever reason (maybe the tiger juice? ;), was awarded the rowdiest row in the stadium and we all got $25 gas cards! Awesome! :) After the game, we were so exhausted and by the time we made it back to Lafayette we went straight back to our hotel and crashed out.
This morning we checked out of our hotel and went to the Blue Dog Cafe in Lafayette for brunch, on David and Kelly's recommendation.
I am so glad we went! It was the best
Anyway, so we're back home now, with satisfied tummies! Super big thanks to David & Kelly for being great hosts! :) Trying to go to bed early tonight, we have a fun-filled week ahead of us, but more on that tomorrow! Nighty night!
