New Orleans

Thanks to the generosity of Bryan’s sweet parents, I was able to join him in New Orleans for a couple of days following his most recent conference. The weather was warm but wonderful, and we spent the time touring various districts and eating truly amazing food. We even ran into a a famous bartender and dipped our toes in the Mississippi.

St. Louis Cemetery No. 2

These broiled oysters were among the best things I’ve ever eaten, and I even found a pearl in one.

This is Chris McMillan behind the bar at his new cafe, Revel. He poured us too many rounds of truly remarkable drinks.

I’ve been to a few new places this year–this is one to which I definitely want to return.

  2. Was that a collapsed tomb? What the h–l was in there?

    Bryan has a theory. You’ll have to ask him.

    I loved New Orleans! We were there years ago between the weekends of Mardi Gras and the Final Four — total chaos. Glad the two of you got this get-away adventure.
