A Saturday in NOLA

The bridge didn't go well Friday, and we didn't qualify for the finals of the IMP Pairs. Instead of playing bridge in some event we weren't interested in, my partner and I took the day off and went sightseeing. We took a Grey Line Tour called Super City. It was only slightly longer than two hours, so we then went to Jackson Square, always a photo op.

Above: There was art for sale on all four sides of Jackson Square -- some of it nice, most of it cheap stuff for tourists.

Above: Silver Man performed for tips. This lady was dressed for St. Patrick's Day, wasn't she?

Above: The St. Louis Cathedral is supposed to be famous. I believe the Pope gave a talk there when he toured the U.S. in 1987 (or maybe he preached - I'm not exactly sure what Popes do).

Above: There was a long line of tarot card readers. I'm not familiar with what they do, but they looked interesting. Would you want this guy to predict your future?

Above: This tarot card reader presented another photo op.

Above: The White Lady (my name for her) was still, but sprang to life when a sucker person like me dropped some cashola in her bucket.

  1. I like the "cheap stuff for tourists" jab... :) Keep wearing that WSOP garb and telling women about your top three finish, and they'll spring to live all over the place. ;) Enjoy the rest of your stay and good luck!

    Has anyone ever told you that you might have a bright future writing for the adult entertainment industry?
