A trip to the Big Easy

We went to the Big Easy to celebrate Steve turning the Big  4-0 on 11/19!  It was an amazing trip filled with great food, fun people and cool jazz.

Mmmmm! Beignets from Cafe du Monde.

At night we walked the streets till 2 am.  There were great jazz clubs and bars.  At Pat O’ Brians we had their famous hurricanes that had rum, pineapple juice, orange juice and grenadine syrup.  We also drank by candlelight  in the oldest bar in the US, Lafitte’s Blacksmith, because there is no electricity.

We listened to Cool Jazz at Preservation Hall.  This house was built in 1750 and turned into a jazz hall in the 60’s.  I heard everything has remained the same since it opened. It looked it too! 

We gazed at the beautiful mansions in the Garden District and dreamed what it would be like to live in one. 

New Orleans was a quick and fun get away with my man!
