Next up was the Swizzle Stick bar. It's inside the Loews hotel.
We checked into our hotel & got ready for dinner.
We had dinner at The Palace Cafe. If you're familiar with New Orleans restaurants, this is a Brennan Family restaurant. I'd never been.
On to the food. SOOOO GOOD! This my friends is crabmeat cheesecake.
Incredible!!! For my meal I had the Shrimp Tchefuncte.
Popcorn rice (I don't know what the difference is between it & regular rice but it was soooo much better), shrimp, mushroom sauce. Soooooo good!!!
Of course we were running just a tad late so we grabbed a cab outside the restaurant & he brought us to the arena for the concert. This cab driver has a lot to learn about getting someplace in a hurry. We made it in time though.
That's a picture of Bruno on the screen. Our seats weren't the greatest. When I say not the greatest I mean we were 3 rows from the top. We were on the side of the arena so we didn't have the worst seats. We could see & hear so it was fine.
Bruno with The Hooligans.
This was right before the encore which was Gorilla. Bruno puts on a really, really good show. I'm soooo glad we went. After the show was over we just wanted water. We were hot & thirsty. Luckily there was a Rouse's nearby. We also ended up with 32 oz. fountain Dr Peppers at 1:00 in the morning. That could have something to do with the not sleeping very good Sat. night. That & the party in the hallway outside our door at 3:47 am........
Sunday we had brunch at Tivoli & Lee. The service was awful.
Allison had a bloody mary & I had a mimosa. It took 20 minutes to get the drinks. The food was fine. Nothing special. I wish we would've stuck with our original plan to go to Atchafalaya. I've never heard a bad word about it. Oh well. Live & learn.
We stopped at PJ's to get a coffee treat for the ride home.
Once I got home & crashed on the sofa I realized that I was awake for 20 hours on Saturday. WHA???? No wonder I was exhausted. In retrospect starting the day with that 12 mi. bike ride might not have been my smartest move.
