I recently did a post on the 107 Jamz Facebook page and posed the following question below.

Needless to say, that some of the comments were a little less favorable than I was expecting, but they were real answers from people who live here, or have lived here for some time. Check out the comments below. I have to admit they are pretty humorous on some and others are really showing love to some local businesses that I would second to visit.

Alright if that wasn't good enough for you. Check out these below, just as humorous and real as people in our city.

I have lived in Lake Charles for over 20 plus years and have seen several businesses come and go. Whether it was an entertainment center, Casino, or restaurant that I would visit often. They would be here for a short time and then all of a sudden they are gone and it seemed to never be any evidence that they were actually here.

When I look around the city, after living through what we have endured from the 2 Hurricanes. I look at the people here who have a willingness to return and bring new businesses or established businesses back to Lake Charles. Yet, there are certain financial woes or increasing real estate that won't allow this to happen for them. At the end of the day, Lake Charles has plenty of potentials and I feel like if you have a friend or family member visiting you for the holidays or any occasion, take them to a nice restaurant that's homegrown here in the city and let them indulge in a piece of Louisiana culture. I am sure they will thank you for it and will want to come back very soon.
