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.
HST's always been unintelligible. He has his own commentary track on the new Criterion DVD of "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas." Plenty of hooting, banging, hollering, and squealing, but not much commentary.
