i’m back to my normal routine (and almost pant size) from our trip to New Orleans earlier this month. you guys… the food, the cocktails, the people watching…the beneigts. amazing. if you are a foodie, then this is your type of place. in three days i walked over 30 miles just eating pretty much. eating, people watching and looking up at the amazing old homes and buildings. while this trip was just joe and I (and technically for work) there was a lot of people with kids. of course that limits your night life a bit (i don’t think i would take my children to bourbon street late at night) that being said, it was not as “crazy” as i was told it would be. we stayed out usually until 10/11 and it was pretty tame and safe. we also went after mardi gras so maybe that had something to do with it.
before we left we took a NOLA cocktail class at the downtown market and our instructor from grove in GR is the one that gave us most of the tips for places we visited. joe has been super in to making cocktails lately and the drinks in this city did not disappoint.
in no particular order here is a list and what we ate at all the places we went to visit
