There is a special anniversary coming up on Sunday. Don's Seafood and Steakhouse, in downtown Lafayette, is celebrating their 75th anniversary! It was a tradition in my family to go out to Sunday dinner, at our favorite restaurant in Lafayette. Every Sunday, after church, we would travel to Lafayette (20 miles) to eat a sinfully delicious dinner at Don's. My dear mother cooked 6 days a week and Sunday was her well deserved day off. We would always sit at the same table and the food was always divine!
My darling daughter and I had lunch at Don's, only yesterday and this is an actual photo that she took of her Broiled Seafood Salad! "To die for", cher! I just love their stuffed shrimp and crabs , seafood gumbo, and the seafood platter is fabulous! But I ordered the Seafood Stuffed Eggplant and after one bite, I thought I was in heaven! Happy 75th Don's, we love you!
It was a glorious cool day in Cajun Country and the T.G.I.F. block party, at Downtown Alive, was packed to the gills for an excellent and exciting performance by Sonny Landreth and his highly seasoned Southern Rock/Blues band. They were on a very high frequency and really rocked the high spirited crowd into oblivion! Sonny is an old friend of mine from the college days. That is another post entirely! It was a fantastic show and a everyone passed a good time!
After the concert the massive crowd headed over to different downtown restaurants and clubs, for a little refreshment. The Harley gang was parked in front of Stan's Downtown, as usual. There was such an excitement in the air that was so invigorating! It feels as if Fall is finally here and we are getting some nice weather.
Lots of Cajuns having fun and enjoying life! The music, the food, the dancing, everyone just having a blast! The weekend is going to be packed with fun with the 73rd Annual Rice Festival in Crowley,( go here for a complete schedule of events), and don't forget the Boudin Cook Off on Saturday, in downtown Lafayette. Hope you all have a blast over the weekend! Let the good times roll, cher! Cheers ya'll!
