Morning meant brunch with cousin Dan and his lovely wife, Anastasia. I surprisingly was not hung over. No, I felt like I was still drunk. Not falling down drunk, but my head felt fuzzy. We walked to the restaurant, which was very small and there was a bit of a wait.
Dan had brought a bottle of champagne and we ordered orange juice so we could make mimosas. I felt better after I had a glass, so I had another!
The food was good. Dan got something with fried oysters and I tried a bite because I have never had an oyster before. It wasn’t bad. But really, if you batter and deep fry anything, won’t it taste good?
We had a nice brunch with them and the food was good as well. Unfortunately, I can’t remember the name of the restaurant.
After we said good-bye I texted Janelle to see if they wanted to hang out before we left. They were eating oysters with their friends, Audrey and Greg, at the restaurant Drago’s. So Zung and I headed for Jackson square and the surrounding area. We walked by this sign, which we thought was pretty funny.
I tried on a pair of cowboy boots that were pretty blinged out, but decided I’d have trouble fitting them in my luggage. We walked around and passed a second line for a wedding.
It was just a nice last couple of hours in NOLA. We headed back to the hotel, packed up and headed to the airport via an Uber. At the airport we got a bite to eat. Our flight home was uneventful. I’m hoping it won’t be our last trip to NOLA.
Next trip report, my solo trip to Mexico.
