As we prepare for Tropical Storm Barry to make landfall, the hashtag "hurricaneparty" is trending on Twitter.

People are posting photos of their hurricane snacks and memes. One barbershop in New Orleans even offered free slices of bread per haircut.

Tropical Storm Barry is expected to make landfall as a category 1 hurricane (75 mph winds) near the coast of St. Mary parish early Saturday morning before it slides up into Iberia parish and then right over Lafayette during the early afternoon hours on Saturday.
