SO. FRICKIN.’ PUMPED.

-see the cemeteries
-did I mention eat?
I want to walk around and look at these:
Maybe I’ll pretend I live there with a couple of attractive male vampires who closely resemble Val Kilmer and Tom Cruise…
I’m sorry I’ll be missing this:
And I’ll definitely be trying this:
I guess that’s all I have to say about that, so far. But keep your eyes peeled in late May and early June for some Crescent City happenings on this blog. If you have recommendations for things to do, unknown treasures or delectable holes in the wall, leave me a comment!

If you want to listen to NOLA jazz, go to Preservation Hall. You'll have to get there early and wait in line for a bit to buy tickets and get decent seats, but it's worth it. Also, you can leave your BF in line and go get some yummy drinks from a local bar and drink them outside while you wait. Drink hurricanes at Pat O'Briens (on Bourbon Street). Eat at The Green Goddess. Super yummy food made with local ingredients and produce they grow themselves. Oh, and obviously get coffee and beignets at Cafe du Monde. Have fun! New Orleans is so much fun!
