We stopped at a huge parade down Poydras St in the Central Business District.
We had a fortunate walk in many ways, and finally ending at Chewbaccus which was amazing! Part Burning Man, part Star Wars, part Start Trek and part WTF? and ALL- fun.
The Next day: Dan, Bitsy and I headed back to the Quarter for an amazing brunch full of mimosas, seafood and banana's foster. The Quarter was lively and we attended Barkus the dog parade - I actually missed the main part of the dog parade but I met many animals!
The Quarter was amazingly empty by Monday and the day was more gray so Dan, Bitsy and I set out to do some of the indulgent touristy things such as Central Grocery: the deli which is the birthplace of the Muffuletta. I was really hungry so I may have been biased, but pretty sure it was out-of-this-world.
I spent the afternoon on the porch enjoying the cooler grayer day. Dan and I enjoyed a cigar and some good conversations. It was great getting some one-on-one catching up with the fantastic Mr. Bentley.
On my final day Dan, Bitsy and I walked to the WW2 Museum. I love history and I was fascinated since my own grandparents had many stories from this era. It was amazing to get a sense of the mood and time that the many stories like this took place in.
