Fat Tuesday

Feb 12 2013

That would be today and I have to say “YAY!” I love a party, absolutely adore Cajun food and this particular day always triggers my first taste back in the year 1998, on the streets of the U.S. capital of it all, New Orleans! A magnificent city of music and culture that has been the spice of my life on many occasions! No other city like it!

Today I celebrate the post-Katrina perseverance of one of my all-time favorite destinations with jambalaya, jazz and DVR’d episodes of the HBO series TREME. And I reminisce about my bayou gator encounter, karaoke at the Cat’s Meow and the wonderful group I paraded in costume with, as well as the cruel shoes, that gave me mad blisters on my heels and had me in flip flops for a week straight! Now that’s a cause for a hurricane! The drink not the natural phenomenon, that is. Cheers!
