Here's a little bit of what we did:
Bourbon Street the first night - wow, it's even better than Vegas!
Garden District our second day - so many gorgeous homes with awesome details. We also had lunch and gelato.
That night we went to Pat O'briens and spend hours at the Piano Bar. What a treat to get to see a friend's sister in law perform. Here's a rousing rendition of Beyonce's "Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It)," my favorite part is Alvin, who played drums on the large tray he's holding:
Sunday we went to the Seafood Festival, with lots of delicious food, and live music. It was super hot out, about 95 with 90% humidity. We're not used to that kind of heat. Check out the policeman with his iPhone.
And some absolutely amazing Coconut and Basil gelato - what an refreshing combo that I hope to try and replicate at home:
Stay tuned for part two which will include plantations and alligators!
