Dive Bar Girl and The Hubs have been married 72 days.  This mile marker in their relationship meant it was time to celebrate their Kim Kardashian/Kris Humphries Anniversary. So they took drive down River Road to Café Burnside inside Houmas House Plantation for a proper lunch.

They entered through gift shop and each paid the $10 entrance fee that granted them access to the plantation’s gardens for the entire day.  In return, the clerk gave them a $20 dining credit at Café Burnside.  They took a stroll under the oaks and eventually reached chef Jeremy Langlois’s restaurant.  The meal started with a breadbasket and Houmas House’s homemade butter with infused with Steen’s cane syrup and pecans. A piano played while they dined on massive hand cut onion rings and poboys that overflowed with shrimp and oysters.  The Hubs knew the place was all class because they had their own signature china.

After the meal, they continued to roam the grounds.  They sat in the sun by the fountain and then visited Houmas House’s artist in residence and groundskeeper, Craig Black’s studio.  They even stumbled upon a secret garden.  It was a good day.

The Hubs Speaks about Houmas House:
“Gentlemen, if you want to take your special lady on a nice afternoon date, Houmas House is the way to go. It’s a nice drive, so there’s plenty of time to talk, the setting is romantic and the prices are very good for the quality and amount of food you get. It’s a hell of a lot more special than taking her to eat at TGI McApplebees and then going to see the latest movie adaptation of a Nicholas Sparks novel. (And far, far less painful)”  

DBG’s and The Hubs will celebrate their Nicolas Cage/Lisa Marie Presley Anniversary after 107 days of marriage. What shall they do?
