If your job covers all of Louisiana Cenla is the right place to park your truck: In past two weeks have been to New Orleans, Lafayette, and Baton Rouge and what our listeners want to hear about is recommended restaurants:


Lafayette: French Press for breakfast and Palmardao (where they run the bulls) for dinner

Baton Rouge: Mansours on Corporate and Acme Oyster House and Perkins

New Orleans: Take you grandchildren to Mothers on Poydras


Every Deal has a Tale / Tail:

I believe this is the corner of Esler Field and 28 East but not certain. I was wrong this is corner of Rice Loop and Tioga High Road near industrial park.

Matt Ritchie has sales side; Maurice Hebert had the list side.
