Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) in New Orleans

Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) in New Orleans
This is another great place to dine in a town that has dozens of great food establishments. This is the outside of Antoine's Restaurant in the French Quarter of New Orleans. It has been serving great French style food since 1840.
After you have eaten at Antoine's you can head to Cathedral Square in the French Quarter and feed the pigeons like we did with our daughters back in the summer of 1982. The "pigeon man" enjoyed selling bird seed to the tourists to feed the pigeons.
Here's another way to work off those Fat Tuesday calories. Do a little Hambone dance. This young man back in 1982 was teaching our daughters how to do some Hambone. What great memories for Jack, I and our daughters.
Don't you wish that you could relive a vacation event from the past? I do.

Hi Joann, great memories in those photographs. We were in New Orleans around 30 years ago. These shots bring back a few memories of my own.
