Carnivorous Experience #1:
Saturday, before the game, Tom and I headed over to The Company Burger on Freret to give it a try (it's been closed or packed when we've tried before.) The Company Burger is the brainchild of Chef Adam Biderman, formerly of Herbsaint, who just wanted to create a space that focuses on high quality and delicious burgers. They have lamb burgers, turkey burgers, and vegetarian options along with the single or double beef burger. IT IS OFF THE HOOK DELICIOUS. I had the Company Burger (a double burger with American cheese, onions, and pickles) and Tom had the lamb burger, and he said that it was exactly as he imagined it would be. The Company Burger was perfectly proportioned, and the bun was wonderful. They have a condiment bar for all your various condimental needs. We had french fries and a serving of local greens with bacon. It was all really, REALLY good.

Carnivorous Experience #2:
I took Tom to McClure's BBQ which was amazing again. This time I was able to try the cornbread which was so good- had jalepenos and sorgham molasses - and Neil's red beans and rice. Still addicted to that mac & cheese. I enjoyed the brisket especially, although the ribs were a close second.
In non-food news, I also wanted to announce that I put many of our beads from last year's parades to good use and decorated our gate!
