Seasonal Language

Booze for the battles

Sara Essex Bradley Photograph

There is a language to every season. The lingo of the holidays gives way to Carnival, which takes us to Festival – all different. Idioms and phrases of each season are really not heard within the other times.

In September, the language is dotted with Geaux Tigers and Who Dat! Everyone wants to be “In That Number” on Saturday night in Tiger Stadium, comprising Louisiana’s fifth largest city at the time, or in the air conditioned confines of the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Sunday afternoon.

To bring additional woe to those unfortunate foes that invade Tiger Stadium, the assembled faithful rain down the taunts of “Tiger Bait” throughout the contest. The game plan, for those who can’t make the trip to Baton Rouge or obtain tickets for the Sunday Who Dat Beat Down, will be accompanied by a proper beverage, both as created and served at big-screen-TV-rich Bayou Burger, a sports bar and restaurant in the middle of the French Quarter.
