Passin’ a Good Time at the Jolly Inn!
You might be surprised at how many guests we have at the Dansereau House who have made Thibodaux, and Southern Louisiana, their vacation destination. We love being prepared with day-trip suggestions, recommended places to eat, and unique shopping spots for them.
A fun-loving couple we had stay a while back were told by the Lafourche Visitor’s Center that a not-to-miss experience was to be found at The Jolly Inn, in Houma, on Friday nights. So, off they went, in search of the good food and Cajun music they were promised. The next morning they could hardly stop talking about it! These mid-Western guests could not believe the welcome they received at the Jolly Inn, and proceeded to dance their way down the hall to show us what they had been taught!
Paul and I love to find bits of free time to investigate places to send our guests, and last Friday night we took our granddaughter down to The Jolly Inn to listen to the music. We met our friends, Leland and Sally Crochet, from Crochet House Bed & Breakfast, who promised some dancing instruction. The atmosphere was truly Cajun, the people were as welcoming as our guests had promised, and the food was tasty! And when the music of Couche Couche began, we knew it was only a matter of time before we’d be dancing!
It takes a lot to get me out on the dance floor, but how could I resist the sweet gentleman who came across the room and volunteered to teach me a few steps? I’m not too good on my feet, but he was patient, and I made it breathlessly to the end. And so our dancing began! We had quite a time dancing, laughing, and meeting new friends! The Jolly Inn is surely now on our “must do” list for our Friday night guests!
