The Drive Home
After watching LSU add another tally to their win column, we met up with some of the boy's college friends at Freebirds.
For anyone from Louisiana, Freebirds is basically the original Izzo's. I beleive the owner of Izzo's even went to A&M, and came to Louisiana to open a startlingly similar franchise. Although Freebirds did have a few other burrito options, and was just as delicious as Izzos.
Sunday morning far too early, we were on the road back to Louisiana. Although first we had to make a detour at Panera. Hopefully the long awaited Baton Rouge Panera will be opening in the next year or so, but until that I have to have it whenever I have the chance.
While I'm a much bigger fan of lunch at Panera, given the time we were on the road, I made the best out of an already positive situation and enjoyed a sausage and gouda souffle, french toast bagel, and pumpkin spice latte before getting back on the road. Thankfully for this trip traffic was much more normal, and we were welcomed back to Louisiana and Baton Rouge by early afternoon.
Do you have a Panera near you? (If so I'm insanely jealous!) And any guesses on how long it will take to FINALLY have a Panera in Baton Rouge?
