Spotlight: New Orleans (Girls Trip!)
Fun city plus great friends plus good food & alcohol minus kids is a recipe for a really good mood. In fact, the baby refusing to nap right now isn’t even phasing me.
We picked New Orleans for Jazz Fest…an excellent decision. Weather was great (only mildly sticky on some days) & New Orleans surprised us with all its cute neighborhoods. We actually only made an obligatory stop on Bourbon Street before meandering our way to Frenchmen Street…a hot spot for listening to jazz music. (Bourbon Street gets all the press, but Frenchmen Street is much more worthy of the visit.)
We easily filled the other days, too. We had awesome breakfasts at the Trolley Stop Cafe & Ruby Slipper (chocolate chip pancakes, yes, please).
Appetizers at various must-see spots, including some oysters at Felix’s.
Ah-amazing dinner at Brigsten’s. Please order the Butternut Shrimp Bisque & the Pecan Pie.
til next time, ladies…
