Wordless (full) Wednesday- Bourbon Street


Oh, what fun we had! We laughed, we danced, we ate, and yes, we shared a few (okay, so, maybe, more than a few) adult beverages. Afterall, it is Bourbon Street!
Songs heard most while roaming the French Quarter:
♪Who dat? Who dat? Who dat think they gonna beat them Saints?♪
Best version was by a band playing at the Famous Door while we were watching the Saints/Cowboys game. The lead singer was a cute little girl with this deep raspy Janis Joplin type voice, and the big personality to match. During the final 2 minutes of the game, when it looked like they might come back, she just sang to the TV in an effort to will them towards a win. Although, we aren't Saints fans, (Love my Patriots!) We couldn't help but get into the spirit with the whole city cheering for them.
♪Oh, when the Saints go marching in
when the Saints go marching in♪
This can be heard in almost all the gift shops and from many of the bands. The best rendition was by a street performer at The Cafe du Monde. While I floated in my powder sugar, beignet high, he sang and played a mean trumpet.
We also heard some great Zydeco, and Jazz at various places, but still the best place to hear great local bands is the Crazy Corner. One band heard this time played an incredibly enthusiastic rub board and accordian which combined zydeco with some edgier rock sounds. Great combination!
