It occurred to me recently that I had neglected to share this video on my blog, and since it’s not exactly Christmas-related, I thought it prudent to give it its own post.
Pretty happy with how these both turned out. First up is a video on the holiday display at the Roosevelt which is an important piece of the Christmas tapestry in New Orleans.
Beignets are lovely.
That’s my stance, and I’m sticking to it.
I think the tendency for New Orleans residents is to reject “touristy” spots, and that’s fine to a point. When your opinion becomes invalidated due to overwhelming evidence to the contrary, I don’t know that trying to cling to the notion of “touristy = bad” is going to do anyone a whole heck of a lot of good.
Though on second thought, if it keeps the crowds/lines a bit lighter, I’m for it. (More for me!)
Love this stuff. Here’s how to do it right.
Parkway has quickly become my go-to spot for po-boys in the city. Oh, I wouldn’t limit myself to them at the expense of all others, but they make a mean sandwich.
I produced this video for NOLA Weekend on Parkway’s special Thanksgiving po-boy, only available Wednesdays in November. It is appointment eating, so make the effort if the idea intrigues you (I recommend mid-afternoon … after the huge lines, but before they run out).
I took a stab at doing this (seasoning a smoker), and what’s more, I documented it for work. Check it out if you have an interest in such matters.
