Bayou Classic & French Quarter
The State Farm Bayou Classic is the annual college football game between the Grambling State University Tigers and the Southern University Jaguars, first held under that name in 1974 at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, Louisiana, although the series itself actually began in 1936. Since 1978 the game has been held the final Saturday in November (i.e., the Saturday after Thanksgiving) at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The French Quarter, also known as the Vieux Carré, is the oldest neighborhood in the city of New Orleans. /5
This evening Colonel Edmonson welcomed over thirty Troopers assigned to New Orleans to support the New Orleans Police Department throughout the 2014 Bayou Classic weekend. Troopers will be patrolling the French Quarter as well as surrounding areas of the city during the 41st annual Bayou Classic to be held tomorrow in the Louisiana Super Dome. Troopers urge everyone to have a safe time and if they are joining the Bayou Classic festivities please have a plan in place for a safe ride home and responsible celebrations. Always wear a seat belt, never drive distracted, and never drive impaired or ride with an impaired driver.

"In 1874 as many as twelve thousand spectators, both black and white, swarmed to the shores of Lake Pontchartrain to catch a glimpse of Marie Laveau II performing her legendary rites on St. John's Eve (June 23–24)." Early life Marie was believed to have been born free in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana, about 1794, the daughter of a white planter and a free Creole woman of color. On August 4, 1819, she married Jacques (or Santiago, in other records) Paris, a free person of color who had emigrated from Haiti. Their marriage certificate is preserved in St. Lo ...
When the third bartender tells you to LEAVE the French Quarter, you should LEAVE. Bayou Classic weekend is not intended for pale faces. Magazine Street we will visit you tomorrow...pinky promise.

The locals warned us about staying out too late. I can't believe that there is not better security during these events, but apparently it is dangerous. Where's my posse when I need them. Oh well, let's see what happens.
