Baton Rouge is burning, and it's not the usual genital burning associated with the after effects of a late night LSU party.
The Caterie, as well as Claitor's Law Books and some other businesses on the corner of Acadian and Perkins, burned down on Friday.
We heard about the fire at the Caterie on Friday during the day, but we actually saw firefighters still trying to put out the fire on Saturday around 10 am. We were heading to Varsity Sports on Perkins to buy some new running shoes, but had to detour at the underpass on Acadian because the road was blocked off. We stopped in the Outback parking lot and took pictures of firefighters trying to control the fire.
Here are some pictures from Saturday:
When we left Varsity Sports we had to detour again, and we were able to get a glimpse at the front of the building. The front actually looks OK.
I hadn't been to the Caterie in years, but it's still sad to see it burn. I saw the Molly Ringwalls there, and of course everyone saw Allison Collins there. I also think I saw two girls make out there once.
The people who own the Caterie plan to rebuild. But it won't be the same... unless the Molly Ringwalls are playing while two girls make out. Then it will kind of be the same.
