    Louisiana has an open container law (meaning that you can't have an open container of an alcoholic beverage in the front seat of a vehicle) to discourage drinking and driving. Yet scattered throughout Monroe are these drive-through liquor places. They get around the law by leaving the end of the straw covered with paper. Yep. That would certainly make me wait until I got home before I took a drink. All you need is a drivers license to prove you are over 21 (if you are the driver) and around four dollars (for a small drink - around 8 ounces).

    This custom doesn't make sense to me. But when in Monroe...

    Lots of people (most) have guns. You will see guns in trucks, Walmart, bank giveaways, belts, etc.....just get over it if you find it strange. I'm sure Monroe would find a "dykes on bikes" parade (here in Seattle) a bit strange too!
