Laundry Day and The Shed Barbeque and Blues Joint

March 02, 2010.
It was a cold, windy gloomy day.  Temperatures were in the 40’s but the wind was wicked.  Maggie was comfortable snuggling in her crate.

Joyce went into town to do the laundry and once again I stayed home with Maggie and Rico. I stayed inside most of the day and worked a bit on my Campsite Review Page and returned some e-mails.  Rico was wanting to go outside.

Later I took the dogs for a long walk, but it was still very windy and cold. We just can't seem to catch a break with the weather!  I did some minor preparations for our travel day tomorrow.    
We plan to travel to Fontainebleau State Park in Mandeville, La.  My brother and his family live in the area and so we plan to visit with them this weekend.
After Joyce got back from doing the laundry, we decided to try the highly recommended restaurant, The Shed Barbeque and Blues Joint.  

The front door, almost makes you think twice about entering!

The outside certainly doesn’t look inviting.  I noticed they had plastic up to cover the open areas from the foul weather.  They have a small outdoor stage on the other side of this mess!

The inside wasn’t very impressive either.  More of a junkyard atmosphere.  The menu claims that the owner is infamous for dumpster diving for junk!

However, the barbecue was spectacular!  Perhaps a bit pricey given the lack of ambience and the fact that the meals are served in a to-go styrofoam container with a plastic fork.  $31 for the two of us!  It appears a famous food critic , Guy Fieri from the Food Network cable T.V. show, Diners, Drive-ins and Dives was at The Shed in 2008.

Across the dirt parking lot is an RV park that we decided to check out.  The friendly clerk opened the gate for us and allowed us to take a quick look around.  Definitely not our type of park!  I’ll leave it at that.
