New Orleans Part Two

Sunday afternoon we roamed around more of New Orleans.  We checked out Cafe Du Monde of course.

Then we got ready for dinner at Muriels.  Boy was it tasty!  I got the filet this night and Kevin got the fish.  Everything was amazing but the bread pudding was phenomenol.  I don't even like bread pudding but this was off the charts.


We headed back to the hotel bar and met up with some of our (now) friends who were also there for the same Allstate trip.  The Sazerac is the "Official Cocktail of New Orleans" so of course I had to try it.  I might have had 5 sips.  Look what's in it!

Needless to say we rested Sunday morning before a great brunch where we saw Dennis again.  He was so sweet. 

Next up, the big event...including a police escort to the game, a ridiculous tailgate and perfect seats. 

We got back to Charlotte earlier this evening and I'm currently unpacking and repacking for a work trip tomorrow... so I'll catch up with yall on Thursday!  After that I think my life is going to get back to normal.  I hope so! :)

We love Dennis, the Allstate guy from when he was the President on 24. So jealous that y'all hung out with him! Sounds like such a fun trip!
