Many Mobile folks travel to Baton Rouge fairly often! I'd like to introduce you to Ellen Pino and her company, Avant Tous Beauty Bar & Spa.

Ladies, if you have been looking for a luxurious atmosphere with offerings customized for your needs, the quest is over! Ellen and her staff believe it is a privilege to be able to serve and pamper their clients! There are many same day opportunities available for your visit to town!

Insider tip from a former Baton Rouge resident! (me) Mestizo's Restaurant located on Acadiana Thruway just off the interstate is a don't miss.

This is NOT your typical Mexican fare. Owner, Jim Urdiales, is a third generation restauranteur and was the first to introduce the "bowl" concept to his city.

Of course he offers traditional fajitas and an enchilada combo, however upon further exploration you'll discover a very sophisticated menu. He has a full Keto menu for food and cocktails! WOW!

As you can see from the picture of my dinner, I was able to eat well! The salmon was prepared & cooked to perfection! We are looking forward to a return visit.


The holidays are upon us and the parties are beginning to happen. Meet Casper Spillers, owner of Casper's VIP Services.

He is ready to pick up your group and make certain that you arrive safely to your gathering.

Casper serves the entire Gulf Coast region from New Orleans to Pensacola! Call 504-919-8368 to learn more about availability and pricing. He'll get you to your destination on time! (Ladies...I am thinking shopping spree in NOLA- who's ready?)


Meet da' Boss is expanding into the Baton Rouge & New Orleans Markets! The Local Vibe will be a combination of Mobile and additional areas as we move forward. Our intention is to offer you many day trip and short destination opportunities to enjoy! As always, businesses that appear on the website have been thoroughly vetted by the MDB team!

Thank you for your continued support and I am honored to be a part of your day! ~ Charlsie
