Next B.R.A.M. Meeting Wednesday October 1st, 2014

The next B.R.A.M.  meeting will be Jones Creek Cafe & Oyster Bar (225-755-3550) located at 15005 Market Street in Baton Rouge. This is near the intersection of Coursey and Jones Creek. If you are coming from Jones Creek the restaurant is behind the Outback Steakhouse and if you are coming from Coursey the restaurant is behind Raisin’ Cane. We will be in the dining room on the right after you come through the front door. Members will begin to arrive around 6PM and the meeting starts at 7PM. Those that wish to order meals typically arrive earlier. The parking lot for the One Hour air conditioning repair facility next door can be used by club members because that business closes at 5PM and the restaurant has a good working relationship with them.

B.R.A.M. August 2014 Event

On Sunday, August 17th, we will be bowling at All Star Lanes which is located on Airline Highway between Old Hammond and I-12. We have this event on Sunday because that is when we can have normal bowling without any special effects. Everyone who is bowling should plan to arrive at the bowling alley for 4:30 PM and the fee for each bowler is $10.00. The fee includes two hours of bowling (5-7 PM), shoe rental, a pitcher of soft drink for each lane, and bag of popcorn for each lane. There will typically be 4-6 bowlers per lane. Bowling balls are available at the alley or members can bring their own equipment. Bowling is not restricted to BRAM members and we encourage whole families to come bowl. 

Please ask people coming to bowl to bring cash or check made out to BR Mustangers for the fee. All Star is handling this like a birthday party and will not be handling individual transactions. The club will take care of paying the alley fee and that is why we cannot process any credit card payments. We want to have everything settled with All Star and bowlers ready to start bowling at 5PM so that we maximize our bowling time. 

 After the bowling, those who want to grab a bite to eat will decide on a local restaurant and head there. This is completely optional. Last year we had about 8 people going together to DeAngelo’s for pizza and some much needed rest.

 This is our 3rd or 4th year having a bowling event and it is always a lot of fun! Everyone is there to have a good time. We don’t care is anyone bowls a score of 15 or 150 – it is all in good fun. I will be needing a preliminary headcount at our meeting Wednesday or through email responses at


Cruise to Crawfish Town on Saturday, July 19th

The Baton Rouge Mustangers will head West on a cruise to Crawfish Town Restaurant on Saturday, July 19th. Anyone who would like to join the group should meet at  the Holiday Inn South parking lot located near the intersection of Airline Highway and I-12 at 2PM. We will leave from there at 2:15PM and head West on I-10/I-12 towards Lafayette. If the weather cooperates, a stop is planned at the Whiskey Bay rest area around 3PM to take a group picture with our Mustangs. Crawfish Town is located at 2815 Grand Point Highway, Henderson, LA 70517. Their telephone number is 337-667-6148. The cruisers expect to arrive at the restaurant just before 4PM. We would also like to invite any of our friends in the Acadiana Ford & Mustang Club to join us at this event. It has been a couple of years since we’ve been about to share a meal and visit for a spell.

Since the weather does not look to be the best, please check back here or on BRAM’s Facebook page for updates if the weather forecast turns severe. You can also call Jim at 225-328-5925. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that the weathermen got the forecast wrong like they did earlier this week!

Cruise to Middendorf’s on Pass Manchac – Saturday, June 21

On Saturday, June 21st, club members will be cruising over to Middendorf’s Restaurant for some of their famous fried catfish (or anything else on their terrific menu). The group will gather at 2:30PM in the parking lot for the Ochsner Hospital near the I-12 interchange at O’Neal Lane. The convoy will leave there at 2:45PM and expect to arrive at Middendorf’s a little around 3:30PM. It would be nice (but not necessary) to send an email containing the total number of people in your party to if you plan on going. The email is especially helpful to know how many people may be driving directly to Middendorf’s and, therefore, would not be part of the convoy from Baton Rouge.

Weather looks like it will be good for this event. Unfortunately, Debbie & I won’t be able to make it this time due to a conflicting event with family so someone each some thin-fried catfish for me!
