With UL Homecoming AND Halloween coming up this weekend, those of us residing in Cajun Nation have a lot on our plates. Do you trick-or-treat then tailgate? Or do you catch the game then head out to a costume party? Here's an idea: trick-or-treat at the tailgating event before the big game! UL has announced that Saturday's tailgating will include trick-or-treating from 1-3 p.m. Children are encouraged to wear their costumes and tailgaters are encouraged to bring candy to pass out. There is even going to be a competition amongst tailgaters for the best decorated area!
There are a lot of great options for the weekend, so EatLafayette wants to help you get the agenda straight. Let us present to you the EatLafayette Homecoming and Halloween Hacks!
Hack #1: Tailgating Food AND Party Food
No matter which occasion you are particularly swaying to this weekend, the party foods and beverages are one in the same. Just on the strip of Bertrand across from Cajun Field are plenty of conveniently located choices! If you’re tailgating this weekend, save yourself some time and trouble by grabbing a Catering Tray from Joey’s and Margaritas by the gallon from Agave Cantina. Hosting a Halloween get together instead? Feed all of those mouths with DeanO’s Pizzas or maybe grab some Famous Café Habana City Mojitos to serve to your party guests. Best part of this hack: all of these options work for either event! No matter what you choose, you’ve still got yourself a good time.
Hack #2: No Tricks, Just TREATS
For this Halloween Hack, we’re giving you the intel on the tastiest Halloween treats in town. For starters, Sophi P’s fall cupcakes are a must-try of the season! Our favorite?
