Hey, I'm actually posting this in the correct forum!
Decided "part 1" didn't make much sense if there was never going to be a part 2, so I'm starting a new thread.
On my way to lunch at Boucherie right now. It was a toss up between that and Red Gravy, but since RG is open tomorrow (and B isn't) that made the choice easier. The streetcar is the most crowded I've ever seen it, I guess I've never taken it on a Saturday before.
Passing through the Quarter, I still couldn't decide what I think of these double decker buses. Make me feel like I'm in London or something. There were "artists" by Jackson Square (and yes, I agree there are also genuine artists there, some pretty good, but there are also a lot of "artists") selling drawings of Justin Bieber. I was walking and laughing.
Now I'm on the way to my fave restaurant, to have lunch and also to book dinner for my birthday next month. But I had to do lunch today, as it has my absolutely favorite menu item: the duck confit po-boy (originally with roasted garlic but I always have it without), not available for dinner . I'm afraid that as long as they have it on the lunch menu (which I hope will be forever), I'll be unable to have anything else. And I'm fine with that.:)
