I lived it up this past week!  It was the last hurrah before competition prep!

First there was the search for the best Bloody Mary:

Bubba Gump’s won!  (This is only our opinion, of course!) Deeeeeelicious!

There was a lot of drinking

And there was a lot of eating

We had delicious sandwiches at Luke’s.

Fried goodies at Deanie’s (I remembered to take a picture 1/2 way through the meal)  Justin and I shared this!

Justin got a street dog.  I am disappointed in myself for not getting one.  I just never wanted to waste the stomach space on a hot dog!

Of course, we had beignets at Café Du Monde!  Can’t go to NOLA and not go here!  (we have been twice so I think I’m an expert!)

Fried chicken at Willie Mae’s Scotch House.  Best fried chicken EVER!  Justin saw this last year on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives so we had to check it out and it was so good, we had to come back this year!

BBQ Shrimp at Pascal’s Manale.  Justin got the steak special.

New Year’s Eve dinner was at Dickie Brennan’s Steakhouse.  The neopolitan salad is the best salad I have ever eaten!  I didn’t get a picture of my main course, but believe me it was delicious!  I got the filet with creamed spinach, and potatoes.  We also tried a few desserts for the table.  Justin and I got the pear sorbet and it came in this little delicious waffle bowl.  Someone else got the coconut cake and someone else got the bananas foster bread pudding (of which I also didn’t get a picture).

Besides drinking and eating, we did A LOT of walking and store browsing!
