New Orleans

Rob is one of my oldest friends. He made me eat a fried po' boy and drink NOLA blonde beer on arrival at Cooter Brown's. I'm really not used to the amount of fried food there is is New Orlean's and promptly got sick. I was in rough shape for the rest of the trip. Rob, the following day, took me to get a drink at The Columns. He made me drink a Bloody Mary and a Texas Prairie Dog. We headed into the  French Quarter to do touristy things quickly: Cafe du Monde & Perlis Later we grabbed hand grenades from Tropical Isle, which I  handed off to another tourist. The drink was way too sweet for me. We then headed to Pat O'Brien's for a hurricane - wasn't as bad!
There were people from all over the states piled into frat houses and RVs on the street. Rob's frat had the entire site set up right. They had a wristband system to know who was supposed to be drinking from the keg, but as the night wore on - I don't think anyone could care.

There are a ton of Krewes in New Orleans. Each puts together a parade during Mardi Gras. Some are larger than others, some hold more history. Will Ferrell was the King of Bacchus. 

The French Quarter at night is intense. I got lost trying to find a friend. I got ready to leave after I was hit on by a woman wearing nothing but nipple covers. Officially made my exit after I saw someone get stabbed! This area is heavily patrolled and cops were on it before anything really broke out.

I am so lucky that Rob could show me around New Orleans!
