The fall weather is starting to move into south Louisiana, which is perfect because there are a lot of things to do in Baton Rouge this weekend.
LSU has its first home game Saturday night and tailgating all day leading up to it. A number of brunch and restaurant benefits are also happening through Sunday. There are also several outdoor music and movie opportunities to take advantage of the clear, cool evenings.
