One more post, to finish up our trip to New Orleans. It's game day, and though you might already know the outcome of last week's game (and it didn't end on a good note for the Saints), it was still my favorite part of the trip.
We arrived at the Superdome bright and early. The bellman at the hotel was even surprised that we were leaving for the game almost 4 hours before kickoff. I like to enjoy the full experience.
Team Gleason Foundation which seeks to improve the lives of those living with ALS. Around New Orleans, they celebrated last Tuesday as 'blocked punt day.'
In the stadium, our seats were awesome. This is our view from the 4th row. You know, if I'm going all the way to NOLA for a game, I would really rather not sit up in the tippy top of the Superdome.
Annnnnd, there's the man, Drew Brees.
Ole Miss band played in the background, they unveiled the portrait of Deuce that will hang in the HOF.
This Saints bead dog is outside the stadium. Small bead dogs are often made of Mardi Gras beads, and these larger-than-life dogs are found around the city to benefit animal adoption in Louisiana.
Tujague's. They offer a delicious 5 course dinner with a choice of 4 entrees. Their house specialty is beef brisket with creole sauce, served before the main course. Delicious!
