Torrential downpour cut short other dinner plans resulting in dining at Mr. B’s...actually I was quite happy with it. Nice fried oysters, good barbecue shrimp (a straightforward classic rendition). The $6 properly made martinis don’t hurt either.
Chris Hannah is still working hard behind the bar at French 75 and it’s as awesome as ever.
Ended up crashing a fabulous house party (with excellent food) for the krewe du vieux. Followed by a party at the Ace Hotel that was much better than you would expect it to be.
