I tell you what, my spare time has been filled for the last two weeks keeping up with the blogs and message boards related to the tragedy that katrina released unto the gulf coast... but I have to hand it to the die-hards of NOLA!
I have lived in the greater Nashville TN area for the last 6 years and got chills as I watched the events unfolding in New Orleans. Our cities are so much alike... steeped in music, fine dining, cultural diversity... even size in population and city layout. It was mind boggeling for me to try to envision my own city going through the same thing that yours did.
But now I find this board! The Chowhounds are ready to eat! You guys are an inspiration to say the least! I will tell you that as soon as possible I'm coming back down for some bugs and beer! On another board that I belong to ( motorcycle specific ) there was a group of us planning a ride down there this fall but of course all that has changed in the last few weeks. You can bet we will be there in the spring if things go well!
I am bookmarking this board to keep up and will post again when we are on the way...
See yall soon,
