I am a southern girl displaced in Canada and I love to eat. I fell for a guy who also loves to eat. Coincidentally, all of our friends love to eat. And we all love to drink.
So - this guy - let's call him J, he is graduating from a very important degree and will go on to work in the health and poverty field. For his graduation I am surprising him with a trip from our great northern (and somewhat unfriendly home - toronto) to New Orleans and all of his New York friends are joining us.
We have 48 hours. Tell me two things:
1. what can't we miss as eaters? We like it all - from soggy napkin-wrapped food from the back of an unmarked van to eating oysters like Lips Manlis in Dick Tracy.
2. And where can we have a big celebratory dinner on Friday night for a group of 7 people within a $50 per person budget?
We are in town from June 4th to June 6th (a weekend)
