NOLA Bound!

nolaEven though I am from New Orleans, I am a total tourist when I go back. I’m heading there today and these are the things I will do just like every time I visit. We will head down to the French Quarter and find Tropical Isle to get their famous Hand Grenades, no matter what time of day it is. Then we’ll go shopping through the French Market and buy lots of things we don’t need just because it’s fun negotiating with the vendors. Last time, I bought a ring that was $45 for $20 and the guy kept saying he wasn’t making any money selling to me. I walked away at least five times and when he finally caved in, he was so angry I thought he was going to punch me. For lunch, I love to go to Café Maspero because they have the best roast beef po boys. The rest of my family disagrees but I love the place and its cozy atmosphere. You can’t go to NOLA without getting beignets at the famous Café Dumonde. The line is always ridiculously long but it’s worth the wait. In between all of this, we check out the street performers and enjoy the art along the sidewalks. New Orleans has something no other place has. If you haven’t been yet, plan a trip! Or come join DisasterJuice this weekend.    ~Dutch
