I never got to do this the last trip..but I am intensely curious about it. The above ground cemeteries are so spooky and gothic, they lend themselves as a natural backdrop. I've seen a few episodes of Ghost hunters that were pretty compelling proof that New Orleans is quite haunted.
I still think of these beignets (mmmm, powdered sugar) fondly, even though it has been a few years since I've been at Cafe du Monde. I fell in love with the chicory coffee and it didn't even occur to me not to drink it even though it was well past midnight. Perfect combo. Food bliss.
There's nothing like meandering down Bourbon street with a frosty Hurricane in one hand, stopping here and there along the way. Drawn in by a blistering guitar riff here, a brilliant sax there. The musicianship was so staggeringly brilliant, I was blown away.
Nothing like standing in line for thirty minutes to drink cafe au lait and eat hot, fried dough by the humid riverbank. Makes me sweat just thinking about it. Much better to go in the winter, when hot snacks outdoors are a welcome treat.
Only airport I've been in that has oxygen bars, which is a decent way to cope with a hangover. It also has real bars which offer an even better cure for hangovers. Oh, and it's also filled with slot machines...last chance to win it back.

I always go to TI when I'm in Vegas because they have my favorite game; casino war. Your card vs. the dealers...virtually impossible to make an incorrect play. So you don't have to bring your estranged autistic brother along to help you beat the odds.
one of my favorite hotels in vegas! the gondola boat rides go throughout the inside of the hotel! The guy rowing the boat also sings to you. Nice touch. But from personal experience avoid trying to harmonize with him.
This sign is perhaps the only thing I remember from my last trip to Vegas! Interestingly, this sign actually sits in the town of Paradise (vs. Las Vegas proper) and is also considered to be the official southern end of the Sunset Strip.
