New Orleans

We had a great time in New Orleans for the ODACA convention. We went a few days early so we could enjoy New Orleans. Our hotel - the Roosevelt - was fabulous! Full of old historic New Orleans charm.

For our first night in The Big Easy we had dinner at the Bourbon House, where we ordered the seafood tower. This is becoming a Bodin tradition!

thumbs up for the Bourbon House

We took a pedi-cab back to the hotel.
Yes, our driver pedaled all four of us back to the hotel (and he's still smiling!)

What trip to New Orleans is complete without brunch at Brennan’s? Our first morning there…

Hmmm.....will it be the Eggs Sardou or the Eggs Hussarde?

Of course you have to order bananas foster for dessert!
Dinner that night at another Brennan’s eatery: Dickie Brennan’s steakhouse

The Sisters
Sunday morning brunch at Commander’s Palace (Bodins love brunch!).

Sunday night it was a quick dinner at the Royal House Oyster Bar,

and then, lest you think all we do is eat and drink in New Orleans (although that is fairly accurate!), a Ghost/Haunts/Voodoo tour of the French Quarter.
