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.
