It's not actually in Shreveport, Alpine.....
It's in a little town called Gilliam north of here up at the dragstrip:

Import FaceOff @ Red River Raceway (http://www.sputnikfx.com/hosted/ifo/ifos/home.html)

That info shows March 20th, not the 12th?!?



If I can get off of work I'll be there to have a look around (not to compete or anything, though...)

Sometimes - it depends on how the inventory is running at the restaurant and how busy Fri and Sat night were.

It isn't often that I have to make a run down south on a Sunday but it isn't an impossibility, either. This early in the season, however, the odds are pretty slim. :)

You know where Haughton, LA is? (Immediately east of Bossier City - out past Louisiana Downs racetrack)

Little place called Crawfish Palace (if you watch late-night cable TV you've seen the awful advertisements most likely......) out there on US Hwy 80.

"got enough fans to blow your hair"

*sigh* That would be the one.

I've been working for them for 5+ years now. The guy that does that voiceover in the ad is one of the owners and decidedly not cajun by any means (it's a married couple that own the place - the Asian woman seen in the commercial, she's from Thailand, is the wife)

Actually, on the rare occasions that I have bothered to take the time to sit down and have a meal there when I felt the inclination after I was done and tried to pay they've never accepted my $$$ so I guess the easy answer to your question is Yes.

I'm a bit burnt out on crawfish, though, after seeing it (literally!) tons at a time - in the height of the season the restaurant moves anywhere from 12 to 20 tons (no, not an exaggeration) of crawfish through there in a week's time. As it is ME going and getting all that product from south Louisiana after loading it, looking at it, and smelling like it all freggin day it's a pretty rare thing that I have a craving for crawfish, shrimp, and/or crabs anymore.
