We had been hoping to go to last night's regional game LSU vs Baylor. Last year we showed up at the stadium ticket-less. After waiting in line a while, some nice guy walked up to us and gave us two tickets for free. So we were hoping to have it happen again this year. Unfortunately on our walk to the baseball stadium we passed several people with their fingers up showing the number of tickets they were looking for. Not a good sign. We finally got to the ticket line, which had around 40 or 50 people in it. And this was around 2 hours before the game.
So instead of waiting for 2 hours in a line and not getting tickets we decided to walk across the street and watch the game at Walk-Ons. We get there, and put our name on the list. They told us it would probably be about an hour, and they took our cell phone number so they could call us if need be. Of course it was so crowed that every time they tried to seat a table the yelled the name a couple times. And it looked like each time they tried calling them on their cell phones. Some people did get seated, but overall they were not met with a lot of success. We were were smart and sat right next to the hostess stand. And after trying to seat a table and not being able to find 6 different parties (phone calls and all), I'm pretty sure the hostesses gave a little cheer when they called our name and finally had someone to seat.
Wasting Time While Waiting to be Seated
Fried Mozzarella at Walk-Ons
For my main course I went with stuffed shrimp. Although it wasn't real descriptive of the name. They we pieces of shrimp wrapped with more shrimp and crab and fried. So maybe coated shrimp would be a better name? Either way they were good, but not as good as the cheese.
Again, since we were there for several hours, we felt a bit obligated to order dessert. I present you with a messy martini...
This was my first time eating at Walk-Ons and overall I was pretty happy with it. I have technically been there before. Once for drinks and another standing in the bar watching an LSU football game. It can be a little expensive (especially if you're ordering both an appetizer and dessert). But either way its fun, and the fried mozzarella is pretty good.

P.S. While my computer was on hiatus, Jennifer at Crazy Shenanigans gave me a Mender of Broken Hearts Award. She's almost always the first one to comment on any of my entries, and said some of the sweetest things about me. If you aren't reading her I suggest you check her out!
With that being said I can't find any official rules for the Mender of Broken Hearts Award. But luckily, I haven't needed anyone to mend my own broker heart, and hopefully won't in a while. If I ever did here's a few girls who I'm sure would come to my rescue:
Amber at A Little Pink in the Cornfields
Amber at the new Girl with the Red Hair (Think of it as a blog-warming present!)
Carissa at The Lovely Dove
Anais at Through Green Eyes
CeeCee at Ceecee's Cozy e*home
And if you wanted to know, LSU is currently up 5-0!
