We then went to check into our hotel for the night, The Roosevelt, who so kindly hosted us in one of their LUXURY SUITES. The room was insanely beautiful and luxe. After checking in, we went to look for food and found ourselves on Bourbon Street. Now, I am sure Bourbon Street is quite the party any day of the week, but being there on a Saturday night was quite the experience…we all enjoyed grabbing beads that had fallen on the street. I shared shrimp and red beans and rice for dinner with my grandpa.
The next day, we still had some time to look around, so we woke up bright and early to head to the famous Café du Monde. My mom and I shared some of their famous beignets, which were fabulous! The beignets were covered in powdered sugar that melted on top of them because they were piping hot, fresh from the oven. Just typing this makes me want to go back to eat more. We spent maybe an hour long walking around the French Quarter. I definitely want to go back to NOLA sometime soon and be able to actually spent time exploring the city.
