Visitor Tips and News About Frog Statue - Frog Capital of the World
Gotta stop off I-10 in Rayne, LA, to view the frog murals all over town. Saturn automobiles filmed a commercial here several years ago (Sat-run, as the locals called it) and put the murals more or less on the map. Just outside of town is my favorite daiquiri shack in all of La Louisianne, sits in a sugarcane field with a little swamp of it's own in front. Tell 'em Joe sent ya! I ain't Joe, by the way, and they won't care who sent you, but you'll fit right in if you act kind of silly. Anyone with a designated driver can make a tour of daiquiri shacks across the whole state, there are daiquiri shacks in Rayne, Breux Bridge, Lafayette, heck, just about everywhere. Always get the medium sized blue ones, they're just the right size to get from one daiquiri shack to the next without chronic 'brainfreeze'. And let me tell you, there is nothing quite like a heap o' blue daiquiri's to make you crave fried food and loud loud music...just the pick-me-up required to really enjoy the Sportsman's Paradise.[Carl Huffman, 06/09/1999]
