(1) Young Wayne Toups, Plays At “Cowgirls” In The Mid 1980’s

A step back in time, another nostalgic memory. “Young” Wayne Toups just starting out at a club called “Cowgirls” located in Scott, Louisiana. Although the club is no more, my transcribed VHS of Wayne Toups music (back in the mid 1980’s) still goes on. Of interest to all that love music, to enjoy and for some to reminisce. Keep in mind we did not have the technology that is current of today’s times.

I’m a very proud Louisianian, and I am just curious to know what non-Louisianians think of Louisiana?

I’m very proud of my state’s beauty and culture. Sometimes the way Louisiana is portrayed on the big screen is irritating but funny at times, such as ‘ Water Boy ‘. But as far as that, Louisiana has unique foods (Crawfish , boudin, Gumbos,very big on seafood, Love lots of flavor and spice, One of the national famous Louisiana Hot sauces is manufactured in Avery Island,30 mins from my residence ,etc) , Culture (Cajun & Creole French culture, Acadian) , Festivities (Festival International, Mardi Gras, etc)
Beautiful Sceneries, such as the Bayous, Swamps, Cypress trees, historic houses and towns ex., New orleans, New Iberia,etc.
Just to give you a little mental tour, but I would love to know what others think! : ) !

laissez les bons temps roulez !! Let the good time roll!!
Yes I want honest answers, as someone asked earlier. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I asked the question, so answer it. This little detail is just to the people who thinks they’re offending me. I take the igonorance with the intelligence : )

I’m from NJ originally (don’t live there now) my wife is from LA,and I like it. Though I can’t go there in the summer because of the red bugs.What I like best are the people there.We’ll be going down there in Feb or March.

what is French Creole culture of Louisiana?

When visiting New Orleans a few years ago, I took a food tour through the French Quarter, our guide was a local. She explained to us the basics of Nola cuisine and what makes this region so awesome!
French Creole to my understanding represents the fusion of French cuisine being created with locally grown goods. The original recipes may have called for specific produce that was not available in the New Orleans regions, so substitutions were made.

People from/have been to Louisiana?

I am writing a book about Louisiana and I would love to hear about the climate, culture, and general ambiance of southwestern Louisiana, around Beauregard. Is there a lot of French influence in this area? What about the native american reservations?
Any info about Lousiana from people who have lived or visited there would be appreciated.

sorry, i dont live there, but i know that it gets hits by huricanes alot. and it gets very very very crowded on mardi-graw day.
