Cajun term for a celebration distinguished by use of mass quantities of food, beer, carbonated drinks and hard liquor (in place of "smooth liquor" like Southern Comfort which the ladies will drink inside their the main boucherie). The behavior at boucheries is normally inebriate but friendly, considering that the cars parked outside boucheries are usually high in guns, which make many civilized people truly polite. Songs varies from old-fashioned Cajun accordion and vocals to zydeco, to more popular nation and stone songs. Generally speaking, the succinct information of a boucherie following the truth is "a very good time was had by all."
