The Amazing Adventures of a Zoobroker and a Sentiographer


Evelyn's Place for Lunch

The hot, wet June in New Orleans was getting predictable. We sought a place for lunch close to the hotel with simple food.

I had my first Mufaletta. Holy yum. I am a devotee now.

And Zoo had Red Beans and Rice.

And a few years back New Orleans passed a law stating you can;t smoke in an establishment that sells more food than liquor. Evelyn's Place serves more liquor, so we got to smoke in the same place we ate. Nawlins FTW!

Best hangover cure in New Orleans - Cafe du Monde

After a night of sugar-rich Hurricanes, I highly recommend getting yourself a tall Cafe au Lait and Beignets at Cafe du Monde. Too bad you can't have a cigarette while drinking your coffee anymore... Used to be a morning tradition for me.

And I continue to curse the transition from air conditioning to humidity. It takes my camera one hour to de-fog. But at least it's representative of how I actually saw the world at that point :)

New Orleans - Day 1

Ah, the Big Easy. We arrived to hot and wet, but clear skies.

Had our first meal at the Napoleon House Bar & Cafe, having some delicious, sticky Jambalaya. I was so hungry I forgot to shoot a photo. And I had my first Pimm's Cup - a southern traditional drink for warm weather that includes gin but mysteriously tastes nothing of it. Won;t be the last one I have :)

... and then as we exited, it started to rain like no tomorrow.

I give that rain only one thumb up. My underwear was still dry.
