While Lynn Drury rocked on stage at the French Quarter Festival… …I was lucky enough to get a double dose of entertainment. I had a front row seat watching a bunch of colors and lines become a painting.
You never know what surprises New Orleans will have in store for you. We kicked off a perfect weekend there with a blissfully debaucherous meal at Boucherie. It was enough to make anyone’s head spin. From there, the rest of our trip followed suit. There is no better setting for a music festival than the streets … More More Debauchery in New Orleans
New Orleans always finds a way to charm me. Whether it’s with the food…Blackened Ahi Tuna Salad and french fries at Royal Street Deli.…the drinks…
What is so special about New Orleans? The people! They come in all different varieties, and they live life in color. They are full of zest and don’t take anything too seriously. It’s constant entertainment. And they sure do know how to have a gooood tiiiime. The secret must be that for any event they … More You Can Be Yourself in New Orleans
If you’ve followed along my blog for any length of time, you’ve probably noticed that what started out as a blog about food and travel turned into a blog about my career change.

I forgot my camera and asked myself if I could survive without it. I look back on … More Will I ever learn my lesson?

It’s about the culture too, and each festival has its own personality. They all share one thing in common though: the people. People watching provides just the right form of entertainment to accompany any event. I … More More than just music at the French Quarter Festival

As you can see, even … More New Orleans French Quarter Fest
Knowing that I would be without a camera in New Orleans, I tried to devise some ways around this little problem. I could certainly use my Blackberry, but it’s not that good, and the battery seems to die on me all the time. I could borrow an iphone at every moment from my bro and sis-in-law. How annoying … More New Orleans: the best $16 burger I’ve ever tasted!
