We rolled outta there , with money still in our pockets:) Food was absolutely delicious - and I do not like seafood. The fish, the shrimp, the crawfish, it was a wonderland for my tastebuds.

And every dish has shrimp! Everything so plump and fresh. We feasted like kings without burning a hole in my wallet. Always a plus. Wait staff very freindly and helpful. Original Memoribilia from the movie Forrest Gump located throughout the restaturant.The restaurant had a quaint little courtyard with wrouhgt iron patio furniture.

Attraction | "Haunted History Tour"

We actually took the Ghost Tour, which meets up at The Morgue (the local bar). It's within the French Quarter District as well. We heard some history of the buildings in the area, and about the ghost hauntings as well. It just gives you tingles down youir spine! What people did to the slaves, what they did to eachother - just barbaric.

French Quarter Nightlife

Attraction | "Anything in the French Quarter"

Quote:
I've never seen anything like it - live music from every bar. Jazz, blues, zydeco, rock, pop, Kareoke, you name it. And everyone hangs out in the strip bars. Guys and girls alike, just having a good ol' time. Walking from bar to bar, with a drink in your hand.

Everyone has the Mardi Gras beads, hoping to get some girl to show her boobs - I earned my beads:)
