2014 Trip - Day 3 - October 5


We started the day off at Camellia Grill, but I forgot to take photos, but most people know what 3 pancakes and bacon looks like. As a side note, I will say that they have the strongest coffee I have ever had. Peggy thought it was great, I just never could get it tasting right for me. Our bill was around 17.00 before tip.

After a short rest we took the ferry to Gretna Fest. They now charge for riding the ferry, to Gretna or just across the river to Algiers Point. We ate a great meatball sandwich and some tasty chargrilled oysters. One of the main people I wanted to see was an old rockabilly star Joe (Don't Mess With My Ducktail) Clay, but he turned out to be more of a player in a band than the actual leader of the band. We caught a little bit of Bonerama, and then walked over to see a duo called Baby Bee and they turned out to be the best we saw today. The only other band we watched for a while was Mrz Crowley, a cover party band, who were also good. We tried to see a band called Little White Lies, but they didn't show up, so I guess there name suited them.

Once we got back to the apartment this afternoon we had a short rest and then went to Acme Oyster House and split some Boo Fries (fries covered in cheese and roast beef fancy restaurants this dish is called Poutine) and Meat Pies with a couple of Barq's....Man! that Barq's is so good in the long neck bottles. Our bill ran around 18.00 before tip. Finished out the night with the rest of the mini dark chocolate mocha cake from Wink's.
