New Orleans, Louisiana

In honor of the Oscars, I’m finally getting around to posting about my trip to New Orleans in January with Greg.  (If you’re thinking, huh?  You’re right, they have no connection.)  It’s such a crazy place, where on Bourbon Street, there’s live music practically every 10 feet, and bars offering 3-for-1 shots everywhere you turn, and yet, just one block over on Royal Street, stores are filled with pricey antiques, chandeliers, and original Picasso and Chagall paintings. 163 more words

Stay hungry my friends!
