Thank you New Orleans for a wonderful, gluttonous two and a half days.

Came into town late Friday night: raw and char-grilled oysters at Felix's with a couple pints of Abita. Delicious.

"Breakfast" Saturday at Mr. B's - barbequed shrimp and gumbo ya ya. Shrimp sauce was amazing.

Dinner at Louisiana Bistro - 4 course feed me: crawfish on a melon, trout, quail, and braised buffalo rib. All spectacular.

"Breakfast" Sunday - Johnny's half shrimp half oyster po boy. Perfect hangover food - savory.

Sunday dinner - Galatoire's - shrimp remoulade, oysters en brochette, sauteed red fish with Crabmeat Yvonne. All very good, but it's the atmosphere downstairs that is really special.

Monday AM - beignets at Cafe du Monde. Perfect hangover food - sweet.

This is without mentioning all of the delicious drinks - Arnaud's French 75, Sazerac Bar, Columns Hotel thank you for the Abitas, the Ramos gin fizzes, the sazeracs, the Vieux Carres, the French 75s.

In my youth (just a few years ago) I came, drank Hurricanes, ate Lucky Dogs, threw beads for breasts, and threw up all over.

I thought it couldn't get better than that, but New Orleans you proved me wrong.
