New Orleans Sneak Peek

This weekend I went to New Orleans for the first time. My awesome friend Kathy had her bachelorette party weekend there, so a bunch of us took a road trip out there and ate delicious food, met both crazy and nice people, and got a great impression of the city.

I have so many photos from my SLR to load up and edit, but for now, here’s a few iphone photos I took…

Lenoir

That same night we headed to Sway, we stopped by Lenoir next and had a lovely time on their back patio. We had wine and snacks and listened to great musicians that helped to provide the evening with a most perfect atmosphere.

Sway

A few weeks ago, we celebrated my friend Crystal’s birthday by doing a little walk around South 1st street and seeing where we ended up. We started out the night at Sway, ordered a few appetizers to share, and had some wine and beer. I must say, this was my first visit here and I fell in love with the place. The atmosphere is perfect. The inside is darker and wooded, and the outside is gorgeous with this fantastic wall. And just before we were about to leave, Robert Rodriguez walked in and sat at a table right by us.

Below are a few of the photos I took while there. All of the photos except the bottom two were taken with my iphone cause I didn’t want to pull out my giant SLR to take photos of all the food.

East Side King at Hole in the Wall

On Friday, I had the opportunity to meet a group of friends over at East Side King Hole in the Wall for lunch. I’d been wanting to try out their ramen bowls, and since I felt a tad bit under the weather, they sounded even better! And it was delicious. Just what I needed.

Friday Afternoon Cocktail

My friend Chris has a series on his blog about Friday Afternoon Cocktails. So we got together a few weeks ago to shoot an amazingly delicious cocktail, the Last Word. For theĀ recipeĀ  and a ton more photos, head on over to his blog (and tell me if you think I have a future career as a hand model).

(Also, go check out his new project Citygram, and support it on kickstarter).
