|Beignet - YUM!!! It was warm too!|
We went to Ash Wednesday mass and got ashes at the famous St Louis Cathedral on Jackson Square, and ate at really good place right next door. We then went to the Preservation Jazz Hall and caught all three sets of the best jazz in NOLA, which is always one of my favorite things to do. Bourbon Street was quiet by its own standards, but it was still rockin. A few people didn't know the party was over. One drunk guy walked up to me and asked me "do you have a few bucks for alcohol if i promise not to spend it on food?" It was the line of the day, but I still said no. That guy was finding out that there was a thing as too much fun! After a trolley ride to the end of the line on Carrolton Street, we got our Jeep which we parked at a Walgreens, and ended the traditional "quietest day in New Orleans".
