Things To Do In Baton Rouge
New: May, 2013
A personal guide and information source from a person who lives in Louisiana's
capitol city. Its been helpful to alot of people as there isn't a whole lot of
reason for people to write real yet easy to find by search engine information on
the Capitol city. Why? Because most Louisiana natives mustn't have done alot of
Internet advertising work or don't care to write this sort of thing in their
spare time.(what can I say sometimes I get bored) Here you'll find things to do
in Baton Rouge, bars in Baton Rouge and Baton Rouge restaurants. I try to update
at least once a month based on what I've heard is happening around town.|
Best of Baton Rouge is a
new website I've developed to give people in or coming to Baton Rouge a great
resource on live entertainment, businesses, live music, restaurants, bars and
more. I've put a lot of work in to this site and know visitors will love it.
Click here to check out the Best of Baton Rouge.
Baton Rouge Information:
- LSU Guide - General
information and links to Louisiana State University. General information about
LSU and a few pictures. I had to do a little something on my Alma Mater.
- Bar Guide - Description
of local area bars and clubs here in Baton Rouge. This has proven to be very
useful for people coming in from out of town for football games. Baton Rouge can
be a difficult place to find anything so I'm glad to help. What do we all want
to do when we're really bored right?
- Restaurant Guide
- Places to eat that I like that are for the most part unique to the Baton Rouge
- Baton Rouge Night Clubs
- Places to go dancing or see live music at night.
- Hotels In
Baton Rouge - I wrote down the best locations to stay in Baton Rouge if you
- Wine Guide - I have a wine
guide that I wrote for the sake of keeping up with some wine and just adding a
little more to this site. I've been putting up information on what stores in
Baton Rouge are offering as far as wine tastings. A good read and you'll find
something to do
- Jerry's Recipes - I've
started putting up recipes that I like as a reference. I lose anything thats on
paper so it seems to make sense. Jambalaya, Sauce Picante, BBQ Recipes and more.
New: June, 2011
I've been working on a air conditioning repair company's website. A local company a friend of mine put me on to. It's been going well.
New: September, 2010
- It's hard to believe that I haven't updated this in nearly a year. I've been so busy with Best of Baton Rouge and My Beer Brewing Software
that I have neglected some parts of jerryodom.com a little.(which has also changed it's primary source over to a wordpress) I've also been working on a Louisiana wetland mitigation banking
website. So I've been all over the place! In any event Louisiana is expanding all over the Internet
and I'm helping with it!
New: August, 2010
- They're building a new bar called The Londoner over in the same shopping center as Hunan's. Looks like it might be awesome given
the number of contractors I've seen in/out of there. Additionally I just helped a great Baton Rouge Margarita Shop rental company
get started online.
New: February, 2009
- It's been about a year since the last time I edited this page. Not suprising since I spend
most of my Baton Rouge time editing Best of Baton Rouge. However I have been working
a bit on a Baton Rouge Wedding Video company's website.
New: September, 2008
- I've been working with a phenomenal
wedding photographer in Baton Rouge to improve her website. She has many
excellent examples of her work which is shows off true and unique artistic
ability. Additionally I've continued to work with Best of Baton Rouge.
New: May, 2008
- What a busy year for me so far. I've continued to work hard at improving my
Best of Baton Rouge website and it's come really well. I'd also like to
share my experience with a
Baton Rouge plumbing service that I had to call. Maybe help my fellow
residents with some of my information.
New: August, 2007
- I've decided to spend a little more time in 2008 updating my Baton Rouge
page. Unfortunately on Best of Baton Rouge I can't rant like I would like to.
For example I've been trying to
buy a lot in Baton Rouge or Prairieville with not a whole lot of luck at
all. It's really been a pain with the price of real estate being so wild. In
addition I'd like to take time to mention a great local business The V Shop.
It's the best place to
Buy a Volvo or Volkswagen in Baton Rouge or have a vehicle repaired or
New: March, 2007
- Of course I haven't been updating this section much since I've worked on
Best Of Baton Rouge when I can. Remember LSU football season is starting soon,
Live After Five for the fall and probably a half dozen other things I'm
forgetting. If you like live music then go see
Hydrovibe & The Operation Rock Tour at Clicks on August 31st.
New: February, 2007
- Checked out the
Zapp's BeerFest. Absolutely wonderful time and definitely on the yearly

New: July, 2006
- I've been very busy lately and spending some time building
Best of Baton Rouge. A website that I will use to add more structure to my
Baton Rouge information.
New: June, 2006
- Another month has come and gone around Baton Rouge. July is hot as hell but
it reminds me of first moving around LSU. I wrote a little about my experience
in renting an
apartments in Baton Rouge.
New: May, 2006
- Baton Rouge fun for
June or at least what I've been up to. its been too hot to do anything
besides exercise in the evenings and go out at night.
New: April, 2006
New: March, 2006
- I haven't put together what I've got going on in May except
The Jambalaya Festival is taking place the last weekend of May. Its almost
summer time and I'll be spending alot of time working out, jogging and enjoying
the weather. I'd consider going to the LSU Lakes to enjoy the wonderful area
near LSU campus. Its crawfish season now and alot of people are having crawfish
boils as are restaurants. I also wrote about my
massage treatment I had for my birthday. It was great.
New: February, 2006
- Well LSU basketball season has come to an end and so has Mardi Gras.
Unfortunately I was sick during Mardi Gras and only made a Ball. March Madness
is upon us and both LSU teams have won their SEC championships so I'll be
watching alot of basketball. Going watch the LSU mens baseball team is always a
great weekend option around Baton Rouge. I am planning to go check out some of
the cool light shows at the
Pennington Planetarium & Theatre. Every Saturday until June 24th they'll be
running a big dome digital light show of Pink Floyd's The Wall and that sounds
awesome! They're also running a Bug's: Rainforest show in March that sounds like
it would be cool.
- Ok lets not forget that
St Patricks day parade that we have in Baton Rouge every March.
New: December/January, 2006
- I wrote a about two good sources for events around Baton Rouge in a brief
Baton Rouge event news article just because it was difficult for me to find
these two sources when I needed them. Hope it makes it easier for everyone else.
- Finally checked out Rasputin/Rasputen's?(spelling) It was an ok place to sit
down and have a drink. Did see the staff rather unprofessionally throw a guy out
who wasn't really doing that much wrong in my opinion.(this sort of staff
behavior is always present in most Baton Rouge clubs) I liked it better when it
was Marazil's but if you're 25-35 years old and you like a trendy kind of bar
this is for you. Mardi Gras is in effect even though things are slow due to the
hurricane Katrina incident. I came up with a
Mardi Gras parade and ball guide for people looking for things to do. There
are many other events going on than these but these are the ones I've hard about
New: December, 2005
- Really if you're complaining about nothing to do in Baton Rouge and you're
not going watch some of the
LSU Mens & Womens basketball games you need to open your eyes. This is a
great time for not alot of money and there are always tickets available. I don't
care if you don't understand whats going on in a basketball game this is fun.
They have entertainers, music and basketball is an entertaining action sport.
Best of all since they don't sell out you can always get tickets for LSU
basketball games! If you're looking for a different bar scene there is now a
place on Third Street called Rasputin's.(actually it was Marazil's) Its a Vodka
New: Nov 14, 2005
- Football season is over and LSU football is the primary entertainment around
here up until December so now people are sort of looking around. I'm going to go
check out mens & womens basketball because LSU has some young & exciting
basketball teams. Ice Skating is also you may consider at the Centroplex until
New: Nov 2, 2005
- The Chimes East opened today on
Coursey and I gave it a look. A really nice new place with the same great menu
of the original by LSU. They have a huge bar with at least 30 beers on tap which
makes it the only great bar on this side of town.
New: October 21, 2005
- Its a bummer that the Live after Five events are over. I was sitting around
the other night thinking about what things I like to do in the evenings as far
as drinking and socializing go. I came up with some of the places I like to go
that I always like to go to. Here is my
City of Baton Rouge day by day guide for any given weekday.
New: September/October, 2005
- Went out to check out
Downtown Live After Five concert and it was a very nice event. Right next to
the Shaw Center for the arts allowing easy access to the Casinos, Capitol City
Grill and Tsunamis its definitely something worth doing on Friday afternoons.
New: August, 2005
- Lately the best place to go on Tuesday evenings is
Tsunami's. They feature great drink specials and the best view in all of
Baton Rouge. A big hit with the ladies and with this cool fall weather you'd
have to love their patio. Tuesday is also a great night at Champp's bar for
- Thursday night has gone from Superior grill to Sullivan's ringside. $5
martini's and a great atmosphere. Check it out.
- Rumor is that there's a new place downtown called Dante's Inferno(?). I
believe its the new club scene and I can't really tell you much on it because
I've been busy with football season. ;)
- Oktoberfest 2005
is taking place right down the road in Gonzales the weekend of the 21st.
- The new Chimes restaurant on Coursey blvd is nearing completion and it looks
like they'll definitely be open for the first of the year.
Well I've been looking for a place to find some sort of Baton Rouge live
music listings easily. Apparently everyone keeps tabs on where to go but not
what is going on where. Why? Because its time consuming I suppose and you
can throw a quick guide up with no real details fairly easily. Well I
stumbled upon The Advocate's Calendar section Friday. In it you'll find
Baton Rouge Live Music
thats probably not appropriately labeled "Shows
to watch". Anyway I thought I'd post it and make it easier for all of you
out there wanting some live music and not able to find listings of whats
actually going on this week. It probably doesn't have everything but hey its
a start and it helped me. A friend of mine who plays in a local band has
also suggested I start a local band section being that alot of local bands
need all the help they can get to get going. I'm with the idea as alot of
local bands put on great quality shows. Look for that in the near future.

place in Baton Rouge for a hair style or hair color.
