Well, it looks like my next trip (besides the impending Coachella shindig) is now officially booked - 4 days in New Orleans, Fri Jun 24 to Mon Jun 27. This time it's not for a work function but for - drum roll please...

A bachelor party!

And no, it's not me who's getting married. :P

A Thursday night red-eye followed by four days of fatty fried foods, hampering humidty, and depraved debauchery. My liver is already looking at me with contempt. Laissez les bons temps rouler!

Sounds cool, have a good time, and don't get arrested.

Should be fun, but yeah, I'm worried about the heat and humidity - however, the date wasn't up to me... It'll be nearly as humid for the wedding in Michigan in August, I'm sure. Gah.

Don't worry Omi, I am sure you will be spending plenty of time in air conditioned comfort in all of the performance art you will be attending.

You may want to call the hospital ahead of time so that you have a bed and the appropriate IV's waiting for you in order to detox for a couple weeks when you get home.

A bachelor party participant never tells!

First night we did the typical Bourbon Street thing - drunkenness, titty bars, more drunkenness, and ended up at a gay club at the end, hoping to hook the groom up with a dude.

Second night I don't really remember. I recall having a really bad headache for much of the evening, going to catch some blues band, and then I split early to go take care of my head.

Third night was a super-fancy meal at the new restaurant La Luna, overlooking the river.. that was fantastic. Followed by bar-hopping in a big square, going down Decatur to Esplanade, up to Rampart, and back to Canal. No tourists, lots of nutty locals, super-cheap beer.

Our days were generally spent at a locals dive bar on Decatur, Aunt Tiki's, where we made friends with the staff and my friend got to serve drinks for a bit. The folks there invited us to this clothing-optional party on Sunday (hah!) but we'd already booked a swamp tour for that time slot. Oh well!

Oh, and Ferdie sandwiches from Mother's are da bomb, yo.
