November Sweet Baton Rouge Insider Scoop

Staying true to our Sweet Baton Rouge Insider roots, we’ve compiled a list of What To Do, Where To Go, What To Eat, and how to Don’t Stop Just Geaux all month long! 

What To Do 

November is a month full of gratitude, preparation for the season, and simply being home for the holidays! With that in mind, we’ve gathered a few of our favorite things to do around Sweet Baton Rouge for you to enjoy:

Live After Five @ Downtown Baton Rouge – Wrap up the season with Sierra Green and the Soul Machine. Get ready for a unique and exciting show from this New Orleans band! A little bit of everything from funk to rock, blues, soul, reggae, country, latin grooves and popular covers!

Perkins Rowe – Whether you’re in need of some Black Friday shopping or want to bring the kiddos to a family-friendly Wild Day at the Rowe event, Perkins Rowe has you covered! You can even keep the whole family occupied with $2 Tuesdays at Cinemark during the holidays!

Post Office – In the spirit of gratitude, take a quick trip to your local post office to spread some holiday cheer! We recommend a sweet card or gift from one of our Lagniappe Box vendors, Magnolia Creative Co or a Lagniappe Box itself!

What To Eat 

Whether you’re looking for a local restaurant to cater your Thanksgiving festivities or simply want some seasonal dishes, there’s always a little lagniappe to go around in Sweet Baton Rouge’s culinary community.

Elsie’s Plate & Pie – The cooler weather makes us want to belly up to some good ole Louisiana comfort food, and Elsie’s doesn’t disappoint! A few of our recommendations are the Fried Chicken & Red Beans, Seafood Pot Pie, and Cajun Crawfish Queso!

Bistro Byronz – From their Pot Roast Creole dinner to their seasonal Frozen Sangria Cider, Bistro Byronz always has something for the whole family to enjoy! They also offer catering at their Government Street location!

BRQ – We’ve been told that BRQ’s catering might just tempt your taste buds even more than their daily menu! Their homemade turkey gravy will have you gobblin’ for more!
