A Great Day in New Orleans

For breakfast, we went to the French Market to Cafe du Monde for beignets. Jennifer had Cafe Au Lait and I had hot chocolate. Very good hot chocolate.

We then walk the riverwalk along the Mississippi. Jennifer took pictures and a video of the big boats. Then back to the hotel to get my car. We drove to the Garden District where there are really nice big old houses. For lunch we went to a Chinese / Japanese place. It as bad Chinese and sushi. O well.

Then drove down Magazine Street. It has cute shops along the street for a quite a few blocks. Then back to the hotel and took a siesta.

At 4:30p we went back to the French Quarter and ate at the Gumbo Shop. I had chicken gumbo and Jennifer had seafood gumbo. It was really good. The best gumbo I have ever had.

We then walked down the crowed, neon lighted Bourbon Street. We went to the Maison Bourbon Jazz Club. There were some awesome jazz being played by the band playing piano, bass, drums, trumpet and clarinet. Jennifer had Irish coffee and I had hot buttered rum. We saw people drinking a Hand Grenade and the ingredients are secret and Jennifer really wanted to try one. So we each got one. There were really good. (I guess not secret anymore since I found the ingredients online.) We then ate at the Two Sisters and got a Boudin in a bun. I got a smoked sausage in a bun. Then back to the hotel.

What a great day with Jennifer in New Orleans.
