I'll be back there in late Feb for the tourney. Good times to say the very least!
This happens when LSU plays Florida. . http://www.endlesssimmer.com/wp-content/uploads… My fraternity served a gator sauce piquante (like a bisque)
Alligators aren't exactly common, but you can find them in South-central to southwest Louisiana. People don't hunt them for sport here. Ever. They are used for food, and their skins are used for boots, bags, etc. To further address a stereotype, they'll take the gator to business to process the meats, the skins, and to make the apparel. It's very uncommon to make your own clothes and food. Most gator is purchased and served at restaurants (my favorites: The Chimes, Walk-Ons Bistraux, Ralph and Kacoos). In other words, it's not like the Waterboy where whatever falls off the bug zapper is whats for dinner.]]>
