Fun in Baton Rouge and New Orleans ... minus the food

First, a few pics from our New Orleans, Baton Rouge trip a couple of weeks ago. I understand this would have been the weekend to go, since it was Bayou Fest and Kenny Chesney and the Zac Brown Band were playing, but Hart's graduation trumped all that. So, here's what you get from our trip.

What do you know? Gene Simmons at Live After Five in downtown BR! Marilyn Monroe was there, too, but we didn't get her pic.

This is just a chick Dorsey and I were fascinated by because she was drunk and dancing with anyone and everything.

Ha! Me.

Thanks to the nice man who just offered to take our pic. 

Live music. They do this every Friday night. It's free, except for the alcohol. 

Saturday in New Orleans. Lots of great people-watching.

I found the best place in the world. "It's So Good," or something like that. The inside is all pink, and it's all jewelry and accessories. I got that pink necklace and pink rhinestone hoop earrings I'm wearing. I also got a fleur de lis necklace and bracelet. I already want to go back.

Inside Margaritaville.

These people were having fun. They had already had quite a lot to drink and were pretty boisterous.

Dorsey's fascination. 

This guy was really good. He played "Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay" for me, as well as "Sweet Home Alabama."

On the balcony of Crescent City Brewery. I had crawfish. That's a new thing for me.

See the Hand Grenade? Dangerous drink. Dorsey is already in search of the recipe.

This was a thing called "Sunday in the Park," also done in downtown BR. It was just OK. Didn't like zydeco music. People were fun to watch, though. 

Dorsey's oysters on the half-shell at The Chimes near the LSU campus. .37 cents each. Great deal if you like that crap.

Me at the Chimes. The bar behind me is famous for its many different beers. It has a wall of fame for those who have drunk every beer offered in the bar. I am not one of them. Hee hee. 

Dorsey's the foody. I'm the funny. :) Tell him to get busy with the food part of this blog!

  1. Hi Jami and Dorsey:

    Loved the photos and am envious of the shopping. Not a fan of crawfish but might give the hand grenade a try!




We want to hear from you!
