2012.04.27 Friday (New Orleans)

Slept in a fair amount.  Those hurricanes have tons of sugar (and alcohol), and my body feels a bit worn down from that today.  Cleaned up and started wandering around town with the guys.

Still waking up for breakfast at Johnny's Po-Boys and Cafe du Monde.  That's right, double breakfast.

Next up, a few bars and wandering around the streets.  Also a quick stop at Harrah's Casino.  There we played some craps and blackjack.  Met some cool people at both games.  A notable one was a teacher from Houston.

Dinner at Restaurant August.  The place was rather fancy (4 dollar sign on Yelp) and we went at a really good time when the evening sun was lighting up everything with a soft glow.  The meal started off with some breadsticks, then a chef creation of a butter/fish custard topped with caviar all inside an egg shell.  (That is probably the craziest thing I've ever eaten.)  For the main course I chose the grilled poussin, which is apparently young chicken.  It was amazing.  Finished the meal with some desserts and french press coffee.

After dinner, we decided to stay in our fancy attire and head to a cigar bar.  There we chatted, some played chess.

Spent the later part of the day out drinking and more gambling.  Goodbye money, it was nice knowing you.
