My wife and I made a "Dave Robicheaux" tour of Cajun country, and the highlight of our visit was our visit to La Maison in St. Martinville. We more or less stumbled upon the place and we gave it a look. We were immediately approached by the owner / host / maitre de who helped us to select our meals, all the while entertaining us with amusing chatter. When we mentioned that we are Dave Robicheaux aficianados, he led us next door into the Alligator Bar (named for the alligator skin covering on the bar?), where the confrontation between Dave Robicheaux (Tommy Lee Jones) and Julie Balboni (John Goodman) was filmed in the movie version of "In the Electric Mist With the Confederate Dead". Seated next to us was a local guy who was one of the extras during the bar scene. Our host asked the bartender to serve a Sazerac on the house. What a nice guy, what a wonderful evening we won't forget.
