New Orleans is hands down one of my favorite cities. The French Quarter is so alive: jazz music on every block, various scents wafting through the air (from fried seafood to, well, not-so-nice smells), people from all over the world, incredible food, gorgeous wrought iron accents on ancient architecture, and a deep rich history woven throughout. On this trip I got to spend a couple days with my mom and grandmother; even shared a "huge ass beer" with them on Bourbon Street! I also discovered the best shrimp po boy I have ever had...even better than the famed Johnny's Po-Boys! Housed in the back of a tiny ecclectic bar (Erin Rose), Killer Po-Boys packs some serious flavor. Sauteed shrimp, grated carrots, pickled radish, cilantro, and special sauce made for one bad ass po-boy. It's become a NOLA tradition for me to attend a Kermit Ruffins concert each time I visit. This was my first show at the Blue Nile on Frenchman and as usual, Kermit rocked the house! Laissez les bon temps roulet!
