New Orleans, LA
French Quarter Fest, 2010
It's one of the best times of year to be in New Orleans. It's my first one since 2005. Before that I had been to every one since 1996. Once I moved away, I had to make the painful choice between Jazz Fest and French Quarter Fest. Jazz Fest always won. No contest, really.
But I love French Quarter Fest, and I've really missed it. Three days of music and food bursting all over the Quarter. I almost hesitate to tell you about it, because I kind of feel it's gotten as big as it needs to. It's really exploded since the storm, which is wonderful for the city, really, so I can't complain. There are more vendors than ever, all of our local restaurants and catering companies setting up shop and serving your standard festival favorites:
We're only scratching the surface here, people. More to come soon.
