New Orleans Street Art, Food, Drink & Music

Our second day in New Orleans was a good one. We woke up and walked over for breakfast at Stanley. We shared their version of eggs benedict and French toast. The eggs were decadent and incredible while I found the French toast pretty soggy and, especially compared to Geraldine's Counter closer to home, pretty much "meh". After breakfast we went out for a good wander around St. Louis Cathedral and along the Mississippi River levy. Our walk then took us on a self-defined route to see some of Banksy's street art the anonymous and world famous artist left in town. We found three pieces one of which was completely covered over. It was pretty awesome to see his work, though, along with some other great local street art/graffiti.

Lunch meant endulging in a muffaletta from Central Grocery and it didn't disappoint. Connie and I shared a whole and each devoured our incredibly satisfying halves. Not enough? We decided to fill the gaps surely still available in our stomach after lunch with drinks in the French Market from Organic Banana. After a nap we walked just outside the French Quarter to Frenchmen Street where we wandered the art market, listened to a great local band Emily Estrella and the Fauxbarrio Billionaires at Maison. She was a super cute lead vocalist with a mostly brass/horn band that was stompin' fun. Our final, late dinner stop for the night was the Praline Connection for gumbo and an great bread pudding dessert.
