Could there be a better New Years Eve party than the one Cafe des Amis is throwing in Breaux Bridges? Remember, the dancing and drinking and accordion playing starts at 8.30am here on a normal Saturday. If you don’t have plans, book a flight and a table for a right old feast and night of swampland revelry. Useful tip: Lisa, the friendly host at the Bayou Cabins swears that boudin / black pudding is the world’s no.1 hangover cure. Personally I didn’t have the courage to test that particularly theory. But check out the menu – this is tempting.
