this morning we lounged in our room---not out of choice but because i needed to print out our boarding passes for southwest in the lobby of the hotel . we had plans of exploring algiers point leaving in the morning------then hightailing it to erin rose to catch the van to do the rum tour. little did i know that the front desk would have printed them for us. so this was plan b.
we got to erin rose---ate some killer poboys---they were yummy. grilled shrimp, cucumbers, carrots, sauce on french crusty bread $12. erin rose has hh 10-2 some decent drinks. i had champagne without the oj---they also have $3 bloody mary, irish coffee, and a few others. then i spotted the jeremiah weed and we did a shot. our guide picked us up for our $10 rum tour. it was pretty cool---they start you with a drink and after the tour---shots of all their rums are given.
after the tour, we walked to canal ferry to take the ride to algiers point. it was too hot to walk around---so we just took pictures, rode back and hit harrahs. we stayed a few hours and then headed to relax and get a shower before going out.
we decided to walk around and just picked a restaurant called the old coffee pot restaurant on st. peter. we both had the shrimp and redfish creole$17---excellent. next we went to bourbon st, listened to troy turner at chris owens(great blues---the man can play a mean guitar).
tomorrow we head home with many great memories and a few extra pounds. or is it many pounds and a few extra memories?
