Red Beans @ The Roux House | The Gilded Lily | TJ Ribs | Kathy Griffin @ L'Auberge Tony's, a household name, and LTK were both selling their shrimp for $8.99/lb.

For nearly two years, I've hosted #JavanDoesBatonRouge right here on my website. But now as a broadcaster, it only made sense to bring the blog to video, something I'll call a "community broadcast." Same theme, same purpose, #JDBR remains my own little way of exploring my home of ten years--a booming city I long overlooked. I have … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — Red Beans @ The Roux House
My portfolio page for BRCC Today, the public access talk show for Baton Rouge Community College. 'BRCC Today' airs Fridays at 5pm on Metro21 (Cox Cable) in Baton Rouge, LA.
It’s been a few months since I’ve posted one of these. I’ve been doing Baton Rouge quite a bit lately, but I haven’t been able to document it as well as I had hoped. These next few entries will be about the places I’ve visited over the past year (I’m backed up just that far), … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — The Gilded Lily

I took a long-awaited visit Leo’s Rollerland this past Saturday for a birthday party, but since I still need to edit the accompanying video, I’ll jump … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — TJ Ribs
All right, if you’ve skimmed through my last few entries, you’ll remember me talking about a book I was writing. It was called #SociallyAwkward, and it was to be some sort of cautionary tale for the many young men who might be socially inept and don’t like their life as much as they should and … Continue reading What Can YOU Do for BROWN?
This entry is written in response to the article “Why I Love Baton Rouge” by NOLA.com writer Kiri Walton. I came across it at 2:30 this morning while designing graphics for a local production company. The article hit home not only because of the title and content, but because of Ms. Walton’s background; she moved … Continue reading Why I Also Love Baton Rouge
I finally went to Quawtaz! That’s how us NOLA natives say “Quarters.” This is the third installment of my “Javan Does Baton Rouge” series, and in this one, I’m taking you to Baton Rouge’s very own, Quarters. Many cities in America have similar entertainment complexes like this, including the national chain Dave & Buster's. I’ve … Continue reading Javan Does Baton Rouge — Quarters
This is a sort of follow-up from my related blog about a recent episode of MTV's True Life about people with social anxiety. This will likely become a series of blogs as I learn the ins and outs of what I'm pretty sure is my own battle with Irritable Bowel Syndrome. In 2010, I began using … Continue reading True Life: [I Think] I Have IBS
