This weekend was an extremely busy one. For starters…my dad is home again. He returned Saturday but, that’s another post in itself. Sunday was myyyy dayyyy. The French Quarter Fest was this weekend and ya know, I love me some festivals! This is my favorite time of the year. The strawberry fest in Ponchatula was also this weekend but, I went a few years ago and I didn’t really have fun at that one.
The French Quarter Fest is da bomb so, if ya ever planning a trip to the city…that’s a really great time to visit. The weather isn’t hot as hell yet and you still get the NOLA party flava. We arrived out there around 3:00 and walked around trying to figure out what booths we wanted to hit. Even though it was super crowded, the lines were moving fast at the booths.
I started with crab cakes with a creamy crawfish sauce, NS had crawfish pasta.
I followed that with some crawfish bread(I was on a crawfish kick) and NS had an alligator sausage kabob. I had never eaten gator meat before…lawd, that stuff was good!
Guess I’ll be getting gator meat at the festivals now.
Naw, we don’t have any pics of the food…we killed that stuff before I could get the camera out.
The closest we got to one was…
NS catching me while I was taking a swig of coke… I love how the wind blew my hat,reminds me of Hee-Haw.LOL
The music was plentiful. We didn’t go into Jackson Square…just hung out along the mighty Mississippi at Woldenberg Park
and headed for the Cajun/Zydeco tent. Y’all know I love me some Zydeco and Rockin’ Doopsie Jr. was closing out the fest…there was no way I was missing Doopsie! He is one hell of a performer!
Doopsie had the crowd on their feet and totally engaged. I lost my voice from screaming so much and I danced the entire time…so did a lot of other folks.
I’m gonna learn this zydeco two-step if it kills me. The energy out there was so festive…
just lovin’ life man…just lovin life. The weather was beyond gorgeous, the food was fantastic, the music… off the chain.
She was everything I love about her and more.
Show’em how we do it in Louisiana Doopsie…
