Eater NOLA and NOLAversary

Folks dancing to Soul Creole at Festival International.

Man, I feel bad - I haven't updated since before Mardi Gras. That's a long time! Since then, I've been ridden in my first Carnival parade with Nyx, judged Hogs for the Cause BBQ, went to Northwest Louisiana (Shreveport), (which is FAR), and Lafayette.

I have spent a lot of time in yoga pants at home writing on my couch. That's going well - you can see how that's going over at NOLA Beer Blog. I've had my work published in all my regular columns (Gambit, Where Y'At, Alcohol Professor, Propaganda New Orleans, Southern Brew News) and in major publications like Beer Advocate and Louisiana Kitchen & Culture.

It's Carnival Time!

King cake!
I have been busy, busy, busy this Carnival season. I'm riding in Nyx this year, and I'm super excited about being part of a krewe! I was able to meet my float-mates during/after the general Nyx meeting on January 6, and they are awesome women. I've gotten great parade day advice and hung out with them over drinks and crafting over the past couple weeks.

We ride on Wednesday (2/26). I'm on float #21, on the top level, neutral ground side, position #5.

Walking a few blocks on Magazine

Today is a reprieve from the cool/cold and wet weather we've been having. And it's going to get cold over the next couple of days again, so Tom and I thought we'd go out and enjoy the day.

First of all, everyone has on their Saints jerseys and shirts, because of the wildcard playoff game against Philadelphia tonight. That's always fun.
