NOLA Friday Saturday, Nov 7 2009 

We arrived at 1822 Bougainvillea House around 5 p.m. And our gracious hosts Pat and Greg Kahn met us at the door. There lovely guest house is furnished with beautiful antiques. After we got settled in, we headed to DBA to listen to Hot Club of New Orleans. They have added a xylophone player to the mix and another dimension to their sound. A couple of glasses of Abita Amber and the evening was off to a fine start. Dinner was fried shrimp sandwiches at Snug Harbor. Our waiter Joe served our meal promptly and with a sense of humor. A stroll down Royal and Bourbon streets and it was time to call it a night.

Off To New Orleans Thursday, Nov 5 2009 

Well, Kristen and I are off to New Orleans tomorrow morning. We are excited to hear the great music, eat and drink until we are stuffed and enjoy the energy of one of the most sensual cities in the world. Keep up with our adventures by checking in over the next six days.
