I've got a job interview in Shreveport, LA on Saturday March 27th for the New Teacher Project. As it stands now, I'm flying into Dallas on Friday and then renting a car and driving to Shreveport. My interview runs 9 to 3 on Saturday and then I'm open until I fly out of Dallas at 4 PM Sunday. However, I'm booked at a hotel in Shreveport both nights.
I don't drink anymore and I don't gamble so I'm wondering if any of my fellow W's have any experience with the Shreveport area and can suggest anything interesting and/or exciting in the area or if I should just plan on packing a few good books? Any thoughts or suggestions? Any one know of any restaurants I should try or any I should definitely avoid?

I might suggest going just across the Texas Street Bridge into Bossier and going to the Louisiana Boardwalk . There's movies and restaurants, etc. When you're not familiar with the area, the Boardwalk and the casinos are your best bet.
I second this. Serving in the military, especially now is a noble endeavor, however, it isn't for everybody. Guru is right, make sure this is what you want and have a real clue as to what you are getting into.
