We had a semi-active New Orleans thread on the dead forum. So I figured we need one here too, just more inclusive to the other beautiful cities in our state!

So hit the drive-thru daq shop, grab a tray of crawfish and post about Louisiana life! Laissez les bons temps rouler!

As long as you’re passionate about the discussion of inspection sticker vs brake tag
I had my mechanic lined up to "bribe" every renewal period. Cause my car was old as eff and wouldn't have passed otherwise.

It amuses me that a very big part of mechanic's income was from people in my same situation.

In my home town, we got ours at a gun shop. He never inspected anything. Handed those suckers out like candy.

Probably the guns too, if I had to guess...

I'll never forget my righteous indignation the first time a friend told me I had to slip the mechanic a bit extra. I WOULD NEVER! That is against the law! Lol.

Ah, to be young and blissfully unaware again.

Shiiiii Lol in Los Angeles you gotta have your shady mechanic on call. Man I remember I owned a 1986 Toyota Corolla G-TS and the very year my car would have hit the exemption on the Emiisions test, they decided to force me to get a emissions test every single year after 2006. Anyway I found this stuff that I swear even though my car would fail the Nos emissions, I put this stuff if my oil, Then run it 30 miles and then go straight to the tester, it passed every single time and this wasn’t on the same vehicles. I think it was called blue sky engine treatment.

Has anyone in the Baton Rouge area been to Mid City Ballroom?
yep. been to a couple of shows. very small, intimate venue. I don’t know for sure, but it seems like a gutted out church (assumption based solely on the stained glass)

parking can be a little tricky depending on the show, but it’s on a main street and easy to get to.

I went last night. Super cool venue. The owner is the worst. I’m really bummed because it’s a great place to see a show.
