In need of a little spring break, Andy thought New Orleans was the perfect destination!
Once he arrived in the Big Easy, he headed straight for Bourbon Street!
Before experiencing the wonders of go cups, Andy decided to fill up on lunch!
Acme Oyster House came highly recommended, and rightfully so! He thoroughly enjoyed his meal of chargrilled oysters and craw puppies!
As he took a stroll down Bourbon Street to walk off the delicious food, he stumbled upon Tropical Isle, home to the famous – or infamous – Hand Grenade!
Andy had to try one immediately!
Under the influence of that neon green concoction, he was ready to masquerade!
Out of costume, Andy wandered over to Jackson Square to see the gorgeous St. Louis Cathedral!
And, of course, the statue of Andrew Jackson!
Now that he had some sightseeing under his belt, it was back to the bars!
But this led him to call it a night!
The next morning, Andy started the day at a famous New Orleans cafe!
Yum, beignets for breakfast!
Full of energy from all the powdered sugar, he searched for the best view of Jackson Square!
Andy then headed to Pat O’Briens for a Hurricane!
Which he followed with a mint julep to go!
Feeling pretty relaxed, Andy rode the streetcar over to the Garden District.
There he found Lafayette Cemetery…
…as well as the legendary Commander’s Palace restaurant!
But his favorite discovery was a bead dog!
Looking for something more sophisticated than a Hand Grenade, Andy visited the French 75 Bar at Arnaud’s.
There he was shown the hidden Mardi Gras Museum upstairs!
After keeping it classy for a bit, he ended his trip the only appropriate way -
wearing beads on Bourbon Street!
