Sent from my iPhone. Please excuse any typos.The destruction from the tornado that tore through town is staggering. You can see exactly where the tornado touched down and dragged across the city. It was a very defined path as well, some businesses, houses, and apartments were untouched, while others 50 feet away were completely leveled. So sad.
Such a cool place! Ordered boudin balls, NOLA beer, oysters Rockefeller, osso bucco, oscar style London broil, red beans and rice, and ooey gooey butter cake...this is the only meal I can think of that Adam and I couldn't polish off since we met
So we might have missed Trombone Shorty, but after Jazz Fest we stopped here for a couple Abitas and a Pimm's Cup, sat at the bar where Napoleon used to drink, and chatted with another new friend who gave us the BEST dinner recommendation...ended the trip with an amazing Southern meal (pictures to follow)
Thank you, Seth and Scott Avett, for reminding me why you are my favorite musicians. And I couldn't have asked for better company

Finished the night off riding over to Frenchman St. Checked out some live jazz at Cafe Negril and The Spotted Cat (below)
I was having way too much fun by this point to take any pictures. Grand finale consisted of every single band member, from all three bands, all on stage at the same time. Most incredible display I've ever seen.
