This weekend (which for me will start tomorrow after work) will be a fun one- my friend Berit will be coming to visit plus the first weekend of Mardi Gras parades.
Tonight, I'm resting up with Strawberry C juice and Tom's chicken noodle soup.
Tomorrow, I'll get Berit at the airport and drive to the Quarter and meet Tom at the Chart Room, then dinner at Iris.
Friday, out to see Mack at the Village, then lunch at August (in a study of polar opposites.) Then out to the Avenue Pub to watch the Oshun parade and then Lilette for dinner. Not been to Iris or Lilette yet, so I'm looking forward to both of them.
Saturday: crawfish boil, Avenue Pub for NOLA Brewing's Flambeau Red release, parades.
Sunday: brunch at Commander's Palace, parades, oysters. Maybe MVB for dinner.
Monday: drive Berit back to the airport, go to work, blog about the weekend's exploits, and get ready for Muses on Balcony at the Avenue on Thursday and the Zulu Ball (!!!!!!!!ELEVENTY!!!!!!) on Friday.
We shall see if things go according to plan. Very possible they won't. (except for Zulu! That will go according to plan, I decree it.)
