2009 Trip Day 4 - May 16

Since we had promised Bill to go to lunch with him to try a reuben sandwich, we had a light breakfast at Croissant D'Or again - 2 raspberry croissants and split a coke - 4.65

At noon we went to Sean Kelly's on Royal Street to try their reuben. First of all, the place was an unorganized mess. You order at the counter, but they only have 2 menus to pass around, no matter how many people are there. Then they are a little bit on the surly side about taking your order. And finally, the kitchen is slow getting food out. We commented to ourselves that this had better be a darn good sandwich. Well, it was ok, maybe a C+. The corned beef was shredded and not all that tender, plus the bread was not grilled properly. It did have a pretty good taste, better than LBTT. With 2 sandwiches, 2 soft drinks, and 1 beer - 21.00.

Around 4 we went to the Louisiana Music Factory for their in store performer - Les Kerr. He was ok, but as Peggy stated, sort of a formula songwriter.

Then we went a few doors down to Beckham's Bookshop to browse a bit. After we left there, we got our first praline and for later, a couple of white chocolate covered peanut butter Ritz crackers.

We had dinner at Mona Lisa. 2 salads, a white pizza (yes, that is the 3rd pizza we've had in 4 days) and a couple of soft drinks - 21.00. We also had a ditzy waitress. We've had worse, she just had trouble organizing things.

My Saturday night walk down Bourbon found that it wasn't all that crowded or wild yet (it was around 9:30). But as we walked back up Royal on the way back, we saw evidence of what happens when it's too hot for pants (see below).
