Oysters, po’ boys, beignets, badass musicians at the Spotted Cat, seeing friends and making new ones, crashing on floors, meeting Dr. John, watching the Raconteurs, a late night afterparty seeing Portugal the Man, a Halloween house party where no one knew who the guy dressed in the old man mask, wearing nothing but tightie whities and a bathrobe, giving out gummy bears to strangers from his pocket was… ha!
