In Love With The Big Easy.

The Big Easy. Crescent City. Cajun Country. Whatever you want to call it, my recent vacation to New Orleans still has me in a romantic daze. My friends and I decided to go for my college graduation, and I was not disappointed. In fact, the sticky humidity and the lingering scent of seafood and Creole spices are still vivid in my mind. If you're planning a trip to this enchanting and raging city, (which effortlessly puts Vegas to shame,) here's a little roundup of some of my favorite spots:
1. Pat O'Brien's--hurricanes are...dare I say?..legendary?
2. Acme Oyster House--you MUST try the boo fries here
3. The Gumbo Pot--the Lost Bread is out of this world!
4. Cafe du Monde--cliche, but the beignets are to die for!
5. The Funky Pirate--watch out...Big Al might make you tote around the tip jar!
6. Anywhere with a 3-for-1 drink special (aka EVERY bar on Bourbon Street. Take note, this special mostly applies to beer.)
7. Amidst the hangovers and food comas, try to squeeze in a Cajun country alligator tour. Did you know they love marshmallows?
8. Mother's Kitchen--all I can say is OMG. Please try the Ferdi Special...and fight the urge to tip!
9. Harrah's on Decatur--for a festive, lively casino experience.
NOLA, you had me at hello, and have yet to let me go!
