Syracuse Game
I know we are a couple weeks away from the game, but as a visiting fan just looking for some friendly advice. More specifically cant miss places to eat, any good golf courses around LSU, best bars, and any other things I should check out while we are visiting. Not expecting a win after watching your BYU performance, but truly excited to check out Tiger stadium and the tailgate scene..... Hopefully a night game!!

Do you have a hotel room booked yet? Where are you staying? When are you flying in/out?

Just wear your Orange, get on campus and enjoy. Don't overplan anything. Enjoyed Syracuse a couple years ago and it'll be a fun atmosphere.

There is a good chance it'll be hot as hell (95F and 100% humidity) . Be ready for that .

Syracuse looked decent last week. This could end up being an ESPN night game.

Never mind. They just play cupcakes until the LSU game. I wish they had an ACC matchup before hand.

re: Syracuse Game
If you are looking for a tailgate to set up shop all day email me and we would love to host you. The owner of a bar in Syracuse took such good care of us last year I feel like I owe it to the fan base to return the favor. We hoped the bar owner was going to make the trip but just found out he couldn't. Cwebb3@bellsouth.net

Parrain's on Perkins Road for some good Cajun food. Get at least one seafood platter, it'll feed two and has it all.

re: Syracuse Game
Seafood:

Chimes: is a great place right off of campus. Awesome beer selection, I think they keep 30 or so on tap. Easily the best LSU bar atmosphere in Baton Rouge. Stuffed mushroom appetizer is a must. Full of crabmeat, cheese, and buttery goodness. Never had a bad meal here, I usually mix up what I get, typically I get whatever their special is for that evening.

Parrans: (Pah-rans) is my go to spot for awesome seafood. I moved to Texas 2 years ago and when I come home I head straight to Parrans. Appetizer, I order their crawfish and crab au gratin (aw-grah-tin). It's basically a crawfish, crab, cheese, onion type casserole thats baked and loaded with butter and heavy cream. It comes with toasted french bread slices for dipping/scooping. It is amazing! For my entree', I typically get the andouille encrusted fish, which is black drum, and it comes topped with a crawfish mushroom cream sauce. Every now and again they have a special I'll get. I've also had other fish dishes there that are superb but the andouille one is my favorite. My dad gets the one thats pan seared fish topped with lump crab meat, capers, and a creamy lemon buttery sauce. If you want to really get spoiled, order chargrilled oysters too. They're good enough to make you want to pack your bags and move to LA!

Lousiana Lagniappe: (Lan-yap) is an expensive place with a fine dining atmosphere. Their food is awesome also. I only ate their twice and do not remember what I ordered but I remember liking it.

I hope this helps. Welcome to Baton Rouge and The Real Death Valley. Enjoy!

re: Syracuse Game
I suppose it depends on if you are staying in Baton Rouge or New Orleans. The following assumes you will be in BR:

Golf Course: University Club - It's about 5 miles from the LSU campus. Flat, long, with a good bit of water. It's the LSU golf team's home course and probably the best course in BR that's open to the public.

Restaurants: I would hang around the Perkins Rd. Overpass area for convenience and variety. It's about 5 minutes from the LSU campus. There you will have a good bit of variety within 3-4 miles.

George's (a "dive" type place with burgers, Po-Boys, fried seafood);
Kalurah Street Grill (a little more upscale with a southern fusion menu);
City Pork (good lunch spot with smoked meat sandwiches and charcuterie);
Digiulio brothers (Good neighborhood Italian spot. It's small, so get their early);
The Overpass Merchant (Gastropub. decent, but limited menu. Nice patio to grab a drink)
Parrain's - Seafood. Consistently good

(These are all in the same block)

If you want to drive a mile or two from the "Overpass" you have the following:

Acme Oyster House (a chain, but you can get raw oysters, po boys, and fish bowls of beer)
Galatoire's Bistro (pricey but decent, Louisiana cuisine. A spin-off of the famous Burbon St. restaurant)
Juban's (a little more upscale with Louisiana classics)

If you want to stick around on campus, then "The Chimes" has good food and a large beer selection (An LSU classic); Walk-On's - Good place to hang out before/after the game. Food is average (at best) but there are plenty of TV's and beer.

re: Syracuse Game
LSU has its own golf course, which I'm not a huge fan of, but there is a 9 hole, about half par 3s, public course around the corner called City Park. The scenary is pretty and considering your green fee and cart fee will be under $20 total, it seems like it'd be a cool little stop in a short weekend in town.
