Then, Lunch at Burger King!
The people who live in northeast Louisiana are a proud bunch, especially when it comes to food.
They just sent out an e-mail blast inviting food and travel writers to come along for a guided tour of the region’s delicacies.
“As a travel writer/editor, I am sure you have tasted many great foods,” the e-mail from the tourist bureau opens. “But I bet none are as great as what we are serving up here in Shreveport-Bossier City, Louisiana!”
I’ll take that bet, you might be thinking.

But then feast your eyes on the very first stop on the culinary tour, the Grand Opener that sets the table for things to come:
9:15 a.m.: Southern Maid Donuts in the Municipal Auditorium
Do tell. Nothing says “Shreveport-Bossier City cuisine” like a bunch of Southern Maid donuts, we guess.
We did learn two facts, though. One, the Municipal Auditorium “is known as the Cradle of the Stars,” and two, Southern Maid donuts are “the only product that Elvis Presley ever publicly endorsed throughout his entire career.”
Still, it’s one trip we think we’ll take a pass on, thanks. -- Richard Connelly
