I just wanted to do a quick update before I have to head into the theatre today. We are spending the week in New Orleans, LA. It has been a blast so far! As soon as I sift through the photos I have taken, I will make sure I post some. There are a lot of really cool historic neighborhoods I have been able to visit this week. Each day, I have been trying to pick a different direction and start to walk and see where I end up. I have been all through the French Quarter, the Garden District, Uptown, Downtown, the Business District... It has been really cool to be in a place with this much history. It is definatly a party town with Mardi Gras and the Super Bowl happening this weekend, but if you look a little deeper you can find a really cool city that isn't all about booze and beads. The Garden district is full of awesome, old-school houses and some great food! I had lunch the other day at Commander's Palace. It was probably one of the best meals I have ever had. I had turtle soup as an appetizer and then some duck over some beans for the entree. It was really good. I learned later on that in addition to being a landmark in New Orleans, Commander's Palace is where many world class chefs worked early on in their careers. I ate at a restaurant where Emeril Lagassi once cooked! BAM!
New Orleans is still a party town though. Last night we celebrated a couple birthdays on the balcony of an apartment over looking Bourbon Street. It was a lot of fun to see all of the people walking by underneath. Hopefully we can go back for the parades that are supposed to start today. As of last night, I have officially thrown beads off of a balcony during Mardi Gras. We can cross that off the list of things to do during a life-time...
Another little side note. There is a company that is in the process of making a Documentary about my job. Well, not the electrician side so much as the whole production. Anyways, they are starting to release little Internet versions to get the word out before the entire documentary releases on TV. Here is the link for the first one:
Enjoy! I will make sure I post more addresses as they are released and let you know when the documentary is going to air on TV.
Thanks for reading...
