New Orleans!

Clearly we’re a little behind on the blog so I’ll just skip to the good stuff. My parents met us in New Orleans and it was a total blast! We went to a New Orleans Pelicans NBA game, Sophie and I stuck around for part of the French Quarter Festival and saw Dr. John play, we poked around in all the little neighborhoods and generally ate our way through the city. We ate some of the best food I’ve ever had… every meal. Seriously, we never ate (or drank) anything that wasn’t incredibly delicious. A couple days after we left, Sophie and I were trying to decide what our favorite meal or dish was and we couldn’t decide — everything was so awesome. A huge thanks to my mom and pops for putting us up and taking us out.

Shopping at the New Orleans Food Co-op. We prefer Park Slope’s.

My pops went full Air Jordan over the row in front of us to grab one of the souvenir balls that were being launched into the stands at the Pelicans game.

Pastries at Cake Cafe, a spot in the Marigny recommended by Sophie’s brother-in-law and his girlfriend. It did not disappoint. We went twice.

Waiting for a cab outside Bacchanal in Bywater. Absolutely unreal sandwiches.

Dr. J going to town on beignets at Cafe Du Monde. We walked away covered head-to-toe in powdered sugar. Totally worth it.
