Some questions/answers about New Orleans:

Does it really take hours for the cruise ship to make it to the Gulf of Mexico? Well, yes. It is about 100 miles as the fat duck floats. New Orleans to Gulf of Mexico

What is the new terminal like? It is like this (from a Nov, 2006 cruise):

The French Quarter and most other tourist attractions are fine and open and anxious for tourists. What's open? Here is one list:

Here is another list:

And another couple of lists:


Drago's is a restaurant I like out in Fat City (not particularly near downtown).  They have now opened a second restaurant at the Riverside Hilton which I intend to try. Stay tuned...

Mandina's in New Orleans has reopened and that is another one on my list. I haven't been to Mr. B's since it reopened. Tommy's Cuisine. And on and on. Too many restaurants and too little time. Sigh.

Just in Time - I see Gambit's Best of New Orleans is out:



Made it! A rainy day in New Orleans, for sure. Still no cabin assignment, but there will be some good eats tonight  (and tomorrow)!

Staying tonight at Hilton Riverside - got a great price through Harrah's, but could have gotten the same deal online with Hilton with one of the buy it now time of rates.

Nice place, but more importantly, where Drago's opened a second restaurant. But first need to make a donation to Harrah's.

{Hey DC, what's happening?}

Acme has opened a restaurant IN the airport. Yum!
