After a few months of renovations, after taking a heavy hit from Hurricane Gustav, Whiskey River Landing is back in business. Better than ever, with it's great bands and dancers. Tonight's band, Horace Trahan and The Huval- Doucet Band , rocked the crowd with it's traditional and sometimes not so traditional,Cajun music. A perfect blend of Cajun and Zydeco tunes, with an occasional waltz ,thrown in for good measure. The crowd was lively and spanned multiple generations, everyone being between 18 and 80 years young. It was so good to see old friends and of course, to dance with them. The only thing missing were the barbequed hamburgers, so treasured by the end of the night, by the patrons.
So, we headed up the Levee Road and decided to stop at Pat's Fisherman Wharf Restaurant for a little seafood, where the seafood is "to die for". Delectable Crawfish Etoufee and Fried Oysters with Grilled Shrimp Salad topped off a great evening. There was a band playing in Pat's nightclub,The Atchafalaya Club, adjacent to the dining room. When I realized that it was one of my favorites, Kevin Naqain and The Ossun Playboys, that meant another hour of dancing. Just a typical fun Sunday on the Basin. Check it out, you'll be so glad you did.
