It was sad to see Fabio go.
Speaking of New Orleans, I'd love to go to the Louisiana Roadfood Festival in April. I thought of you, Miss Ginger! Check this out. They're making the longest po' boy.
The festival is free, so it's the cost of the hotel and getting there. Here's part of an email I got from Roadfood:
If you are planning to come to New Orleans for the First Annual Louisiana Roadfood Festival (www.louisianaroadfoodfestival.com) April 4th and 5th and have not yet made hotel reservations, now is the time to do it. Our special-rate deal with Hotel Monteleone Hotel expires March 4th. Until then, you can book a room for $169 per night – a big bargain for a AAA Four Diamond Hotel in the French Quarter, and in the midst of the weekend's eating action.
