i was at home in new orleans this past weekend, and i spent saturday night at the parades in metairie.

it was cold & wet, but that didn't stop the crowds from partying.

i grew up with the whole deal; so it's not a big deal for me to say, "oh well, not in this weather."

Not Jazz Fest, it's the French Quarter Festival...crowded, to be sure, but the crowds stay in the quarter instead of going out to the fairgrounds

Hey Katie, Good for you! I'm bringing my recipe to work. My plan is to cajole the baker to make 6 cakes for me for Tuesday. My plan is to use the babies as bait...get the baby, we'll buy your next lunch...

If I spent three days or so just in the 1/4 area... in very crowed conditions my next stop wouldn't be the fairgrounds either...more like Audubon Park!!
