Our first event on April 6th was brunch at Palace Cafe on Canal Street. We had the first sitting for brunch at 11:30 am. Look at what we ate, we were so stuffed afterwards.
For the afternoon, we decided to go on a Mississppi Steam Boat ride. Martin was smart to suggest putting long pants on and wearing more layers because it would be cold on the water. I was glad we were able to go back to the hotel and make that change. I found the river to be very dirty and scenery was unappealing. It is still as industrious, with all the ships, as it was back in the day of trades for the Europeans.
If you want to know exactly what the food pictures are check out my instagram; I list all the names in them. After dinner, we made our way over to Polo Club Lounge at the Windsor Court Hotel for an evening of jazz music. It was nice to just relax on the couch with a cup of tea.
