We were in N.O. last weekend for my b-day. Mostly between Harrah's and the Cats Meow. Good times. Glad you had a fun trip!

There are a couple of fuzzy moments from our trip- but they mostly relate to food comas We did have a great trip! Have fun in Playa Darlene!

We must have just missed you guys- we left on Friday. Glad you had a great time! Walking by the Cat's Meow is always a trip- the ability level of participants is highly variable (probably inversely related to alcohol consumption) I, however, can't carry a tune to save my life, so no amount of alcohol would get me singing on stage

Hey Sara,

Great trip report and pics. Dee Dee has New Orleans on her list, one of these years we'll get there.

My bro SIL and a group went last July...we couldn't go and they had so much fun. They're going again in October and I'm really trying to convince DH....

but man the flights are almost as much as to Mexico from Indy.

Nice report....I always thought the main reason to be in NO was to eat eat eat....and it wasn't the perfect trip without gaining at least 7 lbs..even with all the walking!

I hope you can find reasonable flights- it is a really great city

Can you tell that we focused on the food?? We went out a couple of nights and listened to some awesome music, but I only remembered to bring the camera when I knew we'd be eating And yeah- a rough calculation of an average day's worth of calories shows that calories in definitely exceeded calories burned, no matter how many miles were covered

Sara, just saw this report now- great pics- and they made me very hungry! Glad you two had a good time- it's one of our favorite cities. We spent the last two weekends listening to live broadcasts of Jazzfest on WWOZ (.org)- you need to get there one year- fantastic music on several stages and incredible, cheap food!

Thanks Anne! We would love to get there for jazz fest, but in my current profession, I don't see that happening anytime soon. There was no shortage of great music, though- any random night of the week you can find a fun band to listen to. What a great city

Oops, that's right- I forgot about the school schedule .... but you're right- there's no shortage of good music anytime in New Orleans!
