So I'm here in New Orleans for the Academy Society of Hospital Pharmacists and, like all new places I visit, I went for the mandatory exploratory run. It's a nice day and the sun is shining on the Mississippi River and I found a nice but somewhat short boardwalk but it did the trick.
As most people know New Orleans is home to the Mardi Gras - as I arrived yesterday on the LSU game day, fans were in full-on party mode. It's expected to be crazier today when the Saints play the Lions tonight. My hotel restaurant is already packed with Saints fans having breakfast and I suspect by the afternoon the tail-gating will start.
This one's for the ladies!! So this statue represents "Old Man River". I think the dude's in need of some serious manscaping - I'm just sayin'
This is the Inn on Bourbon where I'm staying. It's right in the French Quarter. Most of the buildings have these balconies "for rent" for the partying.
Here's a shot of Bourbon Street this morning. I want to get a before and after picture to show the transformation. Stay tuned!
