New Orleans SPB (part 3)

Easter Sunday we all went out to the Chicken Coop in Hammond, LA. It's this amazing old coop that dudes built a bowl in. Right now the bowl is layered in wood until they can raise the cash to get a final layer. SO SEND THEM FOOLS $! This thing is so much fun.

Its 5 foot in the shallow and 8 foot in the deep-end, complete with door and bank/channel. Like I said, SO SICK.

After skating, it was straight to Coop's for more southern home cookin! Fried chicken that will make you cry its so fuckin good.

The next day Sandy and I crossed the Mississippi river.

While on the boat Sandy said, "Hey, thats the dude from Talladega Nights. Whats his name? The dude that played Cal Naughton, Jr." She then pointed out John C. Reilly and his family. Pretty sick.

Fried Alligator tail?

Taste like shrimp and chicken together.

Pick your poison...

...but we could only afford one. Everyone says SF is expensive?

Our last night in town Sandy and I went out solo. We went back to the Blacksmith Bar, the oldest bar in the US, and enjoyed some music and local brews.

Beers and whiskey by candle light. Abita, a local LA brew, was something new on this trip I had never tried before. The Abita Amber was the jam.

Our last stop of the night was the hot dog guy. It wasn't wrapped in bacon, but still did the job.

Our last meal in town, Turkey Po-boy and a Dixie Brew (my new favorite beer). Our concussion: New Orleans was a blast!

On that note... it was off to the airport.

Thank you, Gordo! First pix of the convention I've seen. Way to let me live vicariously through you.
