Happy Lundi Gras!

For those in New Orleans, Happy Lundi Gras! Looking forward to a great Mardi Gras!

For those not in New Orleans or nearby, my deepest sympathy. For the first time in six months, we in New Orleans can feel sorry for you.

Someone recently asked me if Lucky Dogs was back in business yet. I seldom go into the Quarter, so I could not answer that question. Until now. Once again, NPR did a great story about life in New Orleans after Katrina and what those silly, overpriced weiners mean to a city that prides itself for fabulous food. If you have speakers, I encourage you to check it out at:

Relishing the Return of Lucky Dogs

Tomorrow's the big day! Look for me dancing on Canal Street in a grass skirt. I'll be marching with a group of crazy revelers called Mondo Kayo. Then, I'll be out of town for a few days thanks to that pesky job of mine that keeps getting in the way of my life...

Until then, "Throw me something, Mister!"

Corner of Toulouse and Bourbon! We always stay at the Inn on Bourbon. I have bought many a Lucky Dog at that hot dog stand (while holding a *hand grenade*).

fave lucky dog spot, the airport. all 6 of us used to grab a 'loaded' lucky just before jumpin' on a plane. it always made for a very long flight for all involed. i still look for one when i'm coming or going. force of habit i guess ...
