Back in Memphis. Yes we headed to New Orleans for a few days via Amtrak. (Amtrak train to New Orleans from Memphis. Read more about how to use Amtrak and the train ride here) Good times… if you count walking through hurricane winds as good times.

We did stop in at some of our favorite places while in New Orleans. Juans Flying Burrito.

and we had a “few” drinks at Felipes.

Although it doesn’t sound good, you can suck on the roasted agave. The flavor is sweet.

Johnny Poboys was closed for renovations. 😦

The Grill on Chartres Street was also closed for renovations. 😦

And Steins Deli, the home of 450 different beers, the electricity was out. 😦

Strike three.

We did find this new shop while walking in the French Quarter.

Stanley’s on the square was okay for breakfast.

Cafe Pontalba on Jackson Square is probably one of my favorite places to get gumbo.

Desire also has good gumbo as well.

We also checked out a tiki bar. The results? Not so good.

This is how I look when others are drinking.

The problem? The hurricane was super sour. Not good. The two couples next to us paid $30+ for ONE large drink, they said the drink tasted really bad as well. What up tiki bar?

Greg’s Antiques in the French Quarter has EVERYTHING. And I mean EVERYTHING.

Jimmy Hoffa Safe

This safe is STILL sitting in the yard outside. Want it? It’s free.

At the casino, Gene Simmons and the rest of Kiss took my money.

Kiss Slot Machine

The odd part is that the guy on the same machine next to me was winning money. Doh!

We did find this cool photo-op walking one night.

We liked the photo so much, we are having the picture blown up and framed to hang over our bed.

Oh yes, I found my new bicycle in New Orleans.
