A Fall Football Weekend in NOLA

I'm finalllly getting to my NOLA recap, two weeks later. Since I've already been and blogged about New Orleans about four times, I'll keep the content short and mostly provide a photodump of my recent trip to the Crescent City.

This time around I didn't plan so it was a very go-with-the-flow vacay. The reason for the trip was a Saints game (becuase if you didn't know, I'm kinda a superfan) and while they lost unfortunately, it was still great being in the Superdome surrounded by other fans. Plus it didn't hurt that our seats were 9th row - which, somehow, are the SAME EXACT SEATS as I sat in last year. What are the chances of that?!

In addition to the game, there was a lot of cajun food, beer, and sightseeing. Here's what I got up to...

Cafe du Monde, NOLA

Best photo of the trip? My unintentional pose-off with a security guard. I think his form gives him the edge. Damn!

Looks like an AMAZING trip! Love the pic with the security guard :-P

Super jealous you went to the MNF game, but man alive our boys suck this year. When am I going to learn to stop picking them each week in my football pool *sigh*.

I love your photos of the French Quarter and the above ground cemetery. I have been to NOLA only once and I was too young to remember all of the beautiful French influenced architecture. I would love to return one day. I mean, to see Mardi Gras in NOLA has always been on my bucket list;)

Cheers,
Alyson
