Show Me - New Orleans


Next weekend we head South. Not directionally so much... more east really. But to the American South. New Orleans for a couple days on either side of a drive and stay in Point Clear, Alabama. At this point plan is to grab lunch on Thursday at Cochon. Then a lazy afternoon in Uptown, spent either wandering up Magazine or on the porch of the Columns Hotel. Dinner that night isn't our say but whatever Doodle picks will be just fyne-by-us. We're off Friday morning to L.A., that is, Lower Alabama. Then back on Sunday for lunch again then dinner at Galatoire's. Monday morning is up in the air, before it's back on the plane...

Anything we ought not miss?

The Garden District via: Matthew Peck, New Orleans.

Stroll over to Frenchman St just north of Chartres St and grab a stool at the bar at d.b.a. A phenomenal bar with a great whiskey selection / selection of beers - depending on your desire for missiles or a slower de-sobering. I would choose the slower route; as you can see below there is a great line up of music for the evening that you will want to dig in to and will most likely compel you out to the dance floor. After soaking it up for a while if you get hungry call in a Desperado's pizza to the bar, they deliver and it is delicious! (504.943.9900)

Frenchman is a great call. We need to get some music in while down there.
