Saturday, January 14, 2017 – Friday, yesterday, Roy needed to check on a construction job in Baton Rouge so he asked me to join him. Therefore, Friday was Take the Wife to Work Day! This little lady woke up at 5:30 am. I never am awake at 5:30 am! We drank our coffee, got ready and left at 7 am.
We checked on a few jobs around Baton Rouge and all were making good progress. One was getting new windows and the ceramic tile grouted, one was in the process of having the cement stained and another was moving right along also. We met up with Roy’s boss Henry, at some property he’s buying. Nice! There is room on the property for Dora to park so in the next few weeks we may be moving her to Baton Rouge off O’Neal Lane and I-12! It will help Roy tremendously in that he will not have to drive over an hour each way getting back and forth to work! Henry’s a good guy thinking about us like that! Do you see any pictures so far??? No.
Not until we stopped at this over the top cool place Tony’s Seafood Market 5215 Plank Road in Baton Rouge did the camera come out! And boy it flew out! Roy said as we pulled into the parking lot “This is a place you have to see.”
They had any kind of Louisiana seafood you could think of there. Catfish fresh in the water can be prepared right there.
Lobster in a tank.
Cooked seafood galore, served hot or in the freezer. This place is huge and the cleanest seafood market I’ve ever been in! No fishy smell! They even sold King Cakes!!! The worst thing was that we had other places to go to and couldn’t buy much to take with us. We did get a dozen crawfish boudin balls to enjoy! We will be back!
A little bit about Tony’s Seafood Market
Tony’s Seafood traces its roots back to 1959 when Donaldsonville, LA native Tony Pizzolato opened a small retail and wholesale produce business in the city of Baton Rouge. Realizing Baton Rougean’s love for fresh seafood, Tony added crawfish, shrimp and crabs to his selection of produce. By the early 1980’s, long lines of eager seafood buyers were becoming a common sight. Lines grew even longer during the crawfish season, when Tony’s Seafood had been known to sell as much as 50,000 pounds of live and boiled crawfish in one day. The business has expanded to include Louisiana Fish Fry Products, Ltd.
Today, Tony’s Seafood still sells the absolute best live and boiled seafood in Baton Rouge and is the largest seafood market in the Gulf South. Their deli and delicious plate lunches have become local favorites. One taste and you’ll know why people from all over keep coming back for more.
Well that about wraps it up for our adventure on Friday!
Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
