NOLA Weekend

18 Jun

Jon and I spent the weekend in New Orleans with a big group of friends to celebrate our friend Marc’s wedding. The overall theme of the weekend was definitely… food! We ate (and drank) a ton – Felix’s, The Palace Cafe, Cafe Du Monde, Mothers, and of course – Bourbon Street. We had a great weekend! Below is a summary in Instagram photos. 🙂

Mmmm chargrilled oysters! So good, we ordered an extra half-dozen. Yum.

Of course we had to hit up Pat O’s for Hurricanes!

We had a great time at the Pat O’s piano bar – it was definitely an entertaining couple of hours. It was just me and Jon, since most of the group was at the rehearsal dinner. The place was packed, so we were seated at a table with three other strangers. One guy was from France, and was in New Orleans on business. He was definitely taking full advantage of his night off – he had at least 5 empty drink glasses in front of him – and he ended up buying us drinks! It was hilarious. Also entertaining was the guy playing the piano when we got there – he basically sang every song as if it was a children’s sing-along. It was like Raffi’s piano bar. It was pretty awful how badly he was butchering some great songs, but it was definitely good for a laugh.

Saturday we went to the Aquarium – Jon was most excited about the sharks.
