Eat, drink, repeat
First activity of the day---lunch at Galatoire's, 11:30. Four hours later, lunch was over. What a dining experience!!! We started w/ a mimosa or bloody Mary and ate and drank all afternoon. It was not crowded at all when we got there but it filled up and stayed that way all day. Several people were celebrating birthdays and anniversaries including Laurie who used to be on Trading Spaces. Our waiter was excellent and the experience was divine! After lunch, we walked back to the hotel with the intention of sitting by the pool for a while to regroup. Well, that didn't happen. The pool crowd was a little young for us so we decided to walk around. You know, it's warmish in New Orleans in September so we needed a nice frozen voodoo to cool us off. We watched a little football, walked around, drank, went to Jackson Square then needed another frozen voodoo. Then we needed some more food. Off to Mona Lisa's for some pizza. Time for another walk. We headed back to the hotel---Jan and Rex came in and Jim, Alex and I walked down to the Ritz Carlton to look around and then came on back. So basically, all that happened today was we ate, drank and walked. My kind of day!
