My Kid brother is getting married in New Orleans in June. I am starting to get excited for this trip. His wedding will be cool- the ceremony is at Tipitina's with music by The El Orbits (not including me) and the rehearsal dinner is at Brennan's the night before. The 2 preceding nights will almost certainly feature some version of the Allen Oldies Band and Light rock Express at the Kingpin, my favorite NOLA haunt. I'm planning on getting there Tuesday, likely by plane, and blowing it out with my favorite people Tues and Wed. Thursday I'll try to get back down to earth so I can be presentable for the rest of the weekend. Leave out again Sunday, probably for the El Paso airport. This trip will mark the very first time I've ever booked a hotel room in New Orleans. I have been there many, many times over the years and have always played it by ear, which I will be doing Tuesday and Wednesday as it is.
Fun times to come- David
