It is a small hole-in-the-wall, but to us it's almost like our second home.
Just about every night, I round up some of the boys, and we hang out at Pete's Place. It isn't that far from where we live, and if we want to get away from screaming kids, nagging wives, or just the worries of work and every day life, we get together and we go to Pete's Place.
We first heard about it from a co-worker. The guy said that Pete's Place could put more reputable, established places to shame. They always have fresh beer (or any other drink you can imagine) on stock, their waitresses are some of the best lookin' gals in town, and the atmosphere is casual and friendly. They have local Cajun bands playing there just about every night, and on Friday nights, they have karaoke, where patrons can try to sing and win prizes.
Well, a few months back we decided to check the joint out. It was everything Big Mouth said it was... and more. So now we have a regular hangout and we always look forward to our time spent at Pete's Place.
The owner, Pete Prudhomme, is very laid back, an easy going kind of guy: he knows all the best jokes, he can whip up any drink you wish right in front of your eyes (ever had a "Fuzzy Nipple"? There is actually a drink with that crazy name; when I first heard about it, I cracked up laughing! Still makes me smile whenever I hear the name! LOL), and he is very sympathetic and caring as you pour out your problems to him. He is very good at giving advice. We all really like Pete. He's a good egg.
We do get a bit drunk at times, but we've never had any trouble getting home. If any one out of our group is three sheets to the wind, we have a "car-pool system": we drive the drunken member of our contigent home; don't need to worry about him getting into a wreck, thus causing more problems. Having a nice cold one sliding down our throat on a hot, humid Louisiana day always feels so darned good!! Ahhhh!!
We just might end up bringing our women with us one night. Then they will see why we think so highly of Pete's Place. I think they would really enjoy themselves. I just hope one thing: I hope Pete's Place never loses its charm because if a place gets famous, it somehow loses something and it ain't the same any more.
