Eating Alligator

BATON ROUGE-- As I close out my memorable trip here to Louisiana's state capital, I do so in grand style. Cajun cuisine was on the menu tonight as I joined a small contingent of Southwest Symposium attendees for the farewell dinner at Boutin's.

As an appetizer, I thought I would brave and try this thing called fried alligator. Well, it was pretty good.

The grilled catfish, my main entree was also good.

I'm still not sure this place beats Mike Anderson's, where I had dinner with my parents the last time I was in baton Rouge. But, it's a close second.

What makes Boutin's so different is the live Cajun music and dancing that was going on.

I got a t-shirt to remember this Cajun cuisine experience.
