I'm surprised to see that no one is talking about the oil spill and how that will effect the New Orleans food and fishing industry.
For the locals, what's the word on the street? What are people saying about the clean up efforts (or lack there of)? How will our favorite restaurants handle this? What's going to be safe to eat/not eat?
I leave in less than a week for a mini vacay to New Orleans. This news has shocked and saddened me, but I'm determined to help support the local economy of this great city.... I guess I just won't be having any raw oysters this time.
