How I spent my Wednesday.

Pic Of The Day - 07.14.15 - Souvenir

Something I picked up in New Orleans. It was the theme for the weekend.

Monday consisted of dealing with PPS (Post Party Syndrome) and getting The Calvinator back into a routine. And that consisted of taking him for a stroll during lunch. And, we noticed that his crib had new flowers.

So...Sunday was the last day of the birthday extravaganza. I knew better than to spend Saturday night strolling through the bars on in The Quarter. And, because I was well rested, I was able to get up early, pack, and go to Mass at St. Louis Cathedral in Jackson Square. It is one of my favorite churches.

Part of the birthday boy's posse was gathering at Broussard's for brunch. I had never been to that restaurant so I was game. It was actually very nice, the food was good AND they have bottomless Mimosas. It was a trifecta! Some of the guests at brunch looked like the Walking Dead of New Orleans but not me!

I loved that they had a jazz band strolling through the restaurant and without me asking, they played They All Asked For You.

I had some time to kill so part of the posse ended up at The Pub and then it was time for me to start making my way back to MSY. While I was waiting for the shuttle in the lobby of Hotel St. Marie I looked up and noticed the cool ceiling!

Pic(s) Of The Day - 07.11.15 - I Love A Parade

For over a year, my friend Jim has been talking about having a blowout 60th Birthday Party in New Orleans and he held true to his word.

Open bar. Lite bites. Friends. Jazz band. Police escort. Parade. More cocktails. Heat. Humidity.

About 4:00p.m. I decided I needed to rest. I relaxed and then found my Killer Poboys and then strolled around The Quarter.

Pic Of The Day - 07.10.15 - The Morning After

So...after a night of festivities at la griglia, it was time to head to New Orleans. All I could think of was having a Bloody Mary and that was the beginning of the end.

All I could then think of was a big, greasy cheeseburger which then lead to more drinking which was the second beginning of the end.

In anticipation of Frank Campisi's 85th birthday, a group of us gathered at la griglia to celebrate. You only 85 years old once.
