Fearless Finds: The Sloppy Taco  0

Fearless Finds: The Sloppy Taco | bonveillercher.com

Is it Taco Tuesday yet?! Well it’s only Monday, but we have tacos to share with you today! The new rage right now in Lake Charles is the Sloppy Taco food truck, and I was lucky enough to be working in Iowa, Louisiana, when they made a stop there last month!Fearless Finds: The Sloppy Taco | bonveillercher.com

The Sloppy Taco food truck drives and parks around Lake Charles and surrounding areas to sell their delicious foods, and when I saw them they were attending a fundraiser for a local cheerleading team. Since it was our first time to try it, my boyfriend and I ordered a few different items to try. I absolutely loved the Chicken Tacos! The Sloppy Tacos and Ribeye Roll were tough to beat too! There’s so much stuff on the tacos, and the sauces are delicious! For all the food you get, the prices are definitely reasonable.

The Sloppy Taco’s Headquarters is 2500 Kirkman St, Lake Charles, Louisiana, but to see where they’re parked you can go to their website, sloppytacotruck.com, where they have a tentative monthly schedule. Also follow them on Facebook to find out where they’ll be and when!Fearless Finds: The Sloppy Taco | bonveillercher.com

So if you happen to see the Sloppy Taco Truck around town, make an effort to stop and try them out! You won’t be disappointed!

Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: Bowtie Marina's Pirate Gator | bonveillercher.com

 

It wouldn’t be Lake Charles without a few pirate Gators on the Geaux, and we found our first one at Bowtie Marina! Although he appears to be missing his headpiece, he still has his weapons in his pockets! This Gator on the Geaux stands on the deck to keep watch over the marina and welcome all boats that arrive!

Look at those lips! Senator Gator is definitely dressed to impress and gain some supporters. She’s just outside the Magnolia Building in downtown Lake Charles with the lake to her back. With her campaign in mind, I’m sure she’d be up for any future photo ops!Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: Senator Gator |Lake Charles, Louisiana | bonveillercher.com

Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: All-American Gator | bonveillercher.com

Happy Independence Day!! This patriotic gator is just missing a hat! No really, where did his hat go? My mom is pretty sure she remembers him wearing an Uncle Sam hat in the past, and we can see there definitely used to be something on his head. Regardless he’s still beautiful!Huntin' Gators on the Geaux: All-American Gator | bonveillercher.com

He can be found outside an insurance business at 1700 East Prien Lake Road, and the artist is Anne Dentler.

Bayou Treasures: The Sallier Oak | bonveillercher.com

If only trees could talk!! This beauty is over 375 years old and is on the registry of the Live Oak Society of Louisiana. It stands behind the Imperial Calcasieu Museum and on the site of Charles Sallier’s winter home. Charles Sallier is Lake Charles’s namesake!

The tree is so massive; it’s a living miracle! Time has done nothing but strengthened this giant.

With the summer heat beating down on us, you should definitely take a day to explore the Imperial Calcasieu Museum, and before you leave venture out the back door to take in the Sallier Oak. It’s located at 204 West Sallier Street in Lake Charles, Louisiana. For more info on the museum check out the post we did about them last year here. To read more about the museum and the Sallier Oak click through to the museum’s website at imperialcalcasieumuseum.org.

Fearless Finds: Lakeside Hospitality for You and Your Dog  0

Fearless Finds: Lakeside Hospitality for You and Your Dog | bonveillercher.comI love this taste of true Southern hospitality! I actually found this little watering hole a few years back on a run, and I am so excited to share it with y’all! Just off the sidewalk on the lakeside of Shell Beach Drive is this adorable fountain for human and pet use. As you turn the spout for the human side, the pet side fills up. It even has a cute little poem!

We would like to give a huge thanks to the lovely residents who provide this (rumor has it they are fellow runners!), and we would love to give credit where credit is due. So if you know who owns this little oasis, please comment below or e-mail us at bonveillercher@gmail.com.

P.S. If you do know who owns this fountain or if you are the owner, there is a Gator on the Geaux just down their dock that we would love to get an up-close view of!!
