New Orleans Chronicles: Day 1

We are in NOL to shoot an Olympian athelete in neighboring MISSISSIPPI. Through some careful web surfing and gratuatis upgrading we are staying in a pair of executive suites at the Ritz Carlton though last night it felt more like the green zone. The essence music festival is going on around the corner at the Super Dome featuring Mary J Blige, Kanye West and the New Orleans Riot Police. When I stepped out of our hotel, cops were everywhere on foot, motorcycles and horseback.

Thanks to gentle blog reader Brady Fontenot I ended up at Luke for a plate of oysters followed by grits and shrimp which was great. Brady is pushing us to try a local place that offers gator but I am a little afraid to go down that road again . I think something broke deep inside me last time I tried that particular amphibian.
