Ashlee and I were invited by her old boss and friend, Stacey, and her husband, Gary, and her old co-worker and friend, Chris, and his significant other, Shane, to join them for a long weekend in New Orleans. I was already committed to a weekend guys-trip to Atlanta to see the Titans take on the Falcons, but thanks to some low airfare down to New Orleans (and then back to Atlanta for me), I was able to join Ashlee and the gang for at least one night in The Big Easy.
|We spent a large part of the day and night on the one and only Bourbon Street doing our best Big Easy Crawl.|
|There are always some "interesting" characters on Bourbon Street. In the photo above one of those characters poses with (L to R) Chris, Gary and Ashlee.|
|We had a late dinner in the quirky Clover Grill where their famous hamburgers are cooked under hubcaps (okay?). This little hole-in-the-wall was featured in the Brad Pitt movie, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."|
|One of our guilty pleasures are piano bars, especially dueling piano bars, and Howl at the Moon on Bourbon Street is one of the best. I mean where else do they set the pianos on fire during during JLL's "Great Balls of Fire."|
