We've been trying to get to the Company Burger, but we keep going when it's closed. Last week, it was a fortunate circumstance, as our burger craving (ultimately denied) brought us to the only bike shop open on January 2, called appropriately enough, The Bike Shop. Bought me a one speed cruiser so I will be ready to zip around town during Mardi Gras. (regret: should have taken a ride today.)
After the bike purchase, we went to Midway Pizza, which was pretty much right next door. Deep dish pizza deliciousness and many local and craft beer, hard to go wrong.

We also visited Crescent City Comics, and ordered the final Buffy Season Eight comic book, which came in on Friday- happily necessitating a visit back to Freret today to pick it up! Tried Company Burger again- but it was mobbed, so we moseyed down to the High Hat for a more sedate dining experience.

I WILL get to the Company Burger someday, dammit. And I am also craving a shrimp po-boy at Freret St. Po-Boy & Donut. And need to get to Ancora. And, um, some cocktails at Cure. Dammit, Freret Street, stop with your temptation!
