What’s Happening in the Red Stick? HALLOWEEN EDITION

The October edition of “WHIRS” is dedicated to the 3L’s. Since we are the only ones refusing to be hermits in the library yet #3LOL. Don’t fret my fellow classmates, we still have time for a “Monster Mash” before finals crunch time. I have scoured all the Baton Rouge social calendars to come up with a list you’ll enjoy, and I hope you check out some of these fun events before your 3-2-1’s kick in.



Dr. Love, M.D.

For this edition of The Civilian, Dr. Love didn’t wait for questions—instead, we gathered a few tips on dating a law student with the help of a PMH couple. Names have been changed to protect anonymity. (more…)

Dismissed with Prejudice: Halloween Edition

The HaLAWeen party is not one to be missed; however, party-goers should be warned that not everything is truly how it seems at this annual hullabaloo. I can still recall an eerie encounter I experienced my 1L year. After walking into the party and making my way though the many costumed people, I was able to find a spot to stand at the bar. The entire venue was packed from wall to wall so ordering a drink was obviously going to be an ordeal, but I didn’t mind the wait. I mean, seriously, who doesn’t pre-game for the HaLAWeen party? Regardless, I was enjoying scoping out all of the different costumes that these young professionals had managed to put together.


Lunchin’ & Brunchin’

By: Angelina Valuri and Prof. Jeff Brooks

IMG_0671 (1)After two months of having brunch together, Professor Brooks finally uttered those three words my heart has been waiting to hear: “Time for lunch.”
For our first Lunchin’ outing, we decided to kick it old-school and experience a meal at the oldest downtown restaurant in Baton Rouge. Located one block from the Mississippi River, Poor Boy Lloyd’s has been serving breakfast, their famous po’ boy sandwiches, steaks, and seafood for over forty years. Live music is also available on Friday nights. (201 Florida St. 225-387-2271)
If you are looking for a slice of Louisiana culinary history at a historical location, Poor Boy Lloyd’s is the place for you. Although finding a parking spot close to the restaurant may be difficult during the lunch hour, a short walk usually does a body good. At first glance, Poor Boy Lloyd’s hits the mark on every angle of the “must try” lunch trifecta: 1. Historical 2. Family-Owned and 3. Hole-in-the-Wall Location
As a reminder, every month Professor Brooks and I, along with a rotating “mystery diner” guest will order three separate lunch/brunch dishes from restaurants that are not only affordable, but are a little bit off the beaten path. All restaurants will receive an overall rating between 1-5 gavels, with a 1 gavel rating being “poor” and a 5 gavels rating being “excellent.”
If you have a lunch or brunch location you would like to see reviewed, please feel free to e-mail your suggestion to avalur1@lsu.edu or jeffbrooks@lsu.edu.
