My 8 Favorite Memories of the Louisiana Boardwalk in Honor of Its 8th Anniversary

So, a birdie told me that this year will be the eighth anniversary of the Bossier City shopping center that we all know and love, the Louisiana Boardwalk. I’m happy to present to you with my eight favorite experiences that have happened at that shopping center.

Watching Fight Nights at Restaurants

 
 

My buddy Shawn will always call me up the night of a big fight and say "Hey lets go down to the boardwalk and watch the fight!" To which I'll say "Heck yeah!"

Normally, we get there after the restaurants are full, so we usually end up standing outside the restaurant and eating pretzels from the pretzel joint around the corner. Your legs get tired sure, but man is it fun.

The Top Down View

 
 

If you're a resident of Shreveport-Bossier but have never walked over the Texas Street bridge, you need to do that as soon as you can. There's something exhilarating about the perspective of walking over a heavily-trafficked bridge where you have maybe three feet between traffic driving 40 mph and a 75 foot drop. Which is only more intense when someone walks by!

But the view...totally worth it. Looking over the river on the north side of the Texas St. bridge is amazing around sunset. And you get a great view of people just going about their day shopping in the boardwalk to.

Next time you say "Man I'm bored. This town has nothing to do," go for a walk over the Texas St. bridge.

Bass Pro Shop, Or I'm an Idiot

 
 

Freshly back from a fishing trip with my dad, we ran to Bass Pro Shop and I wanted to price out a rod and reel set. I found a reel I really liked, only to realize it was $150. I test cast it only to see it go flying! I apologized profusely to the nice guy behind the counter who obviously had enough of my handling of the merchandise. I walked away feeling like a moron.

I should go back and buy that reel.

Christmas Time

 
 

From the year they had a snow machine to the ubiquitous Christmas tree, it's not Christmastime unless you've been down to the boardwalk.

Monkey Brains

 
 

You read that correctly. Monkey Brains. It's not what you think. Sushiko on the Boardwalk serves up this amazing treat. One day I went there feeling adventurous and asked the waiter, "What should I try?" He said "Oh, the Monkey Brains, no doubt."

Well, much like everybody I've ever told to try monkey brains, I had my doubts. But check it: it has spicy tuna (I think) and crab meat shoved inside half an avocado, all fried and covered in eel sauce and spicy mayo. Amazing.

Hooters

 
 

Once upon a time I worked for another radio station (here in the building) and my lunch time sponsor was Hooters. To *ahem* show my support for them sponsoring my show I went there. Daily. For months. I made a great friend there who was just a bartender back then but now a days is a full-fledged manager. Amber Montono. I can't think about the Boardwalk without thinking about Hooters.

Midnight Movie Premieres

 
 

When there is a huge midnight movie release, we're there. In as many theaters as we can be, anyway.

We know you love great movies. So we want to share that moment with you. From the time we gave away almost a whole movie theater's worth of tickets to "The Hunger Games," to the complete insanity that was "Twilight: Breaking Dawn Parts 1 and 2."

Being there with you guys at those moments is what makes my job so cool.

K945 Listener Lounge Events

 
 

Another one of those 'man, I've got a cool job!' feelings comes from hosting K945's free concerts, or as we like to call them Listener Lounges. Off the top of my head, we've brought Kelly Rowland and Olly Murs.

When we do shows, we do them big and we know you are okay with seeing some of the biggest names giving you a free show. You keep coming to them we'll do our best to keep putting them on!
