After the Mardi Gras craziness had settled down, we took a quick weekend girls' trip there. I was the only one of the three who had not ever been there before. First stop....beignets at the renown Cafe Du Monde. The business has been in the French Quarter forever. I know why! Day or night 24/7 they are busy. It's unbelievable how many they serve in a day's time.
One of my favorite tours was Mardi Gras World. This is a behind the scenes tour of how they design and make all the floats.
We stopped at a local bakery to get an awesome poor boy.
We had desserts at Emeril's. Couldn't go wrong with any choice!
