Our Food Adventures in Chicago

NOLA Day 2: The Diamond Jim Experience

In eating out! on February 3, 2011 at 9:45 pm

Well I don’t know who Diamond Jim was (yet) but I sure can recount the tales of today:

It rained hard in the morning but that didn’t stop us and our large multicolored umbrella. We went to some vodoo shop and got our first daquiri type drinks – the Hand Grenade and the Horny Gator, which came with a tiny gator we called Phil. We decided to take Phil everywhere and put him in all our picutres.

Phil!

Phil!

Well long story short we got po’ boys at Parasol (deliciouss! and beer spilled on me. get the roast beef!) and we went to Cochon for pork things and also before that we went to Drago’s for charbroiled oysters and fleur de lis shrimp. That was a good snack but the po’ boys were large and fiilling mmm mm!

Later we checked out Harrah’s Casino and the Blacksmith bar which had a piano player who was pretty good. There we met a gay couple and an Alabama girl who was 28 and very friendly. We then went on to Frenchmen St where we visited DBA NOLA for some jazz and local beers (NOLA Irish Channel Stout). Eventually we made it back home from all our adventures.
