went to New Orleans last weekend

My brother had a conference scheduled there, so we drove down to meet up with him and his wife. We had a great time! Saturday night they had an "adult" parade; the theme was "Stimulus Package" and the entire thing was a political satire on our current economic status. It was hilarious! I'm posting some of the pics, but I'm afraid a few from the parade would probably break some rules if posted. Here's a link that has a fun video of a good majority of the parade: Krewe du Vieux 2009: What did you think? - Mardi Gras New Orleans | Parade News, Party Pictures, Videos & more -

The food was awesome (unfortunately I did not get pics of the incredible bread pudding we had, but I did get some pics of beans/rice and fried oyster poboys). We saw a lot of crazy things and met a lot of crazy people and had a great time!

Yum yum. I'm going down to visit one of my nephews in the Mobile, AL area next weekend. Mobile will be having their version of Mardi Gras going on. He just opened up his second bbq restaurant down that way so I want to check it out. He's got some blue's musician playing that weekend so should be fun.

If your ever down that way Simple Girl, stop by. Here's a cheap plug for them. Hope this is not considered spam.
