Hurricanes & Hand Grenades

This year I spent my birthday in New Orleans exploring Bourbon Street. The trip definitely makes my list of all time favorite birthday celebrations and proved that I’m not a “one hitter quitter” (inside joke!).

I got to eat at Copeland’s, my former favorite restaurant until it was shut down in Mississippi. That was the best food I had during the entire trip. Of course being a burger guru, I had to visit Port of Call and boy did it disappoint! Maybe they were having an off night. I tried the Huma Huma as well (couldn’t finish it :/). Another must visit on my list was the famous Pat O’Brien’s. I LOVE that bar, especially the free drinks (couldn’t finish a hurricane :/).

My top Bourbon Street club, although small, is Razzo’s. It was small and shoulder to shoulder packed, but the most fun out of anywhere else we visited. Best of all, there was no one smoking inside. Yesss!! It was mood killer to barely be able to breathe with every stop. Why on earth is it ok to smoke inside of a closed space??

Bourbon Street was wildddd. I havr never seen so many nearly naked drunk people doing the craziest things in my life! However, I must say this was much better than my first visit & I’ll be back (in my Schwarzenegger voice)!
