2012.04.28 Saturday (New Orleans)

Woke up at a reasonable time, and headed to Johnny's Po-Boys for breakfast (again).  The other options we checked out were crowded.  Jazz Fest really increased the congestion of the streets and locations.

Went around to a few restaurants and oyster bars for most of the day.  Some chose to gamble, others slept in the room.

Today is the day we finally met up with the girls group.  We took some cabs over to the New Orleans Hamburger and Seafood Co. for dinner.  I had the red beans and rice (finally something with a full on New Orleans style)  A quick walk over to a nearby bar and we were celebrating as a large group.  We might have made a few people in the establishment feel weird because we kind of took over the dart boards.

When we were about to leave, we called up the cab company and found out there would be at least an hour and half wait before being picked up.  That was not cool.  A big cab-van picked up the girls, and Tim's mom came to the rescue and picked up us guys from the bar.  Back at the hotel, some went to sleep, others wanted to go gamble, and others wanted to go celebrate on bourbon street.  I chose the bourbon street route.

Long night, good times.  A very interesting and memorable way of wrapping up the loose ends of the bachelor/bachelorette party.
