Where do N'Awlins folk go for real Cajun food? The Bayou Steakhouse in Monett, Missouriana, of course. These guests from Gretna, La., not only stopped in for some authentic down-on-the-Bayou cooking, but stayed to celebrate an ancient French Catholic tradition, Mardi Gras on Tuesday night. The celebrations are part of the basis of the famous New Orleans slogan, "Laissez les bons temps rouler," or "Let the good times roll." The Bayou hosted a day-long celebration on Fat Tuesday with food, drink and fun. "Today was busier than even Valentine's Day," said restaurant owner Darren Indovina. Pictured above are just a few of the guests attending the celebration. From left, are: Cera and D.J. Longino, Indovina, and Kacy Longino. Last Tuesday's event was so popular with local diners that the wait staff ran out of beads to dispense among the happy guests. [Times Photo by Melonie Roberts] [Order this photo]
