South Florida "work" hehehe

I spent considerable amounts of time both in Fort Lauderdale and Miami Beach from March to May of 2001. One of the coolest things to do in Lauderdale is the Water Taxi which will take you around town and drop you off wherever you want to go eat or drink or shop or whatever...all by boat. Very cool. In Miami Beach, I stayed a few blocks north of South Beach, where it's supermodels galore, and the parties and the night-clubbing do not end until 5am every day (after three weeks of that, I am almost surprised that I made it home alive).

I'll have a lot more to say about SoFLA eventually...I'm just too lazy to write about it now. In the meantime, you can see the pics.

New Orleans, 2001

Went to New Orleans in January/February 2001.

Stayed in the French Quarter.

Partied on Bourbon Street, where many happy-hours stretch from 11am until like midnight or so...and you can take your beer around with you from bar to bar in a to-go cup. Hadda have
Hurricanes at Pat O'Brien's.

Lunched at Emeril's restaurant, went to the Camellia Grill for breakfast, and had one of the best burgers in town at the Clover Grill.

No trip to New Orleans would be worth it without a stop at the Central Grocery and one of their Muffalettas...a sandwich that's almost as wide as a Frisbee and four times fatter, with three types of imported cheese, lots of Italian cold cuts, and a special olive salad spread...mmm...
