Try not to put the "Fried" in Friday, OK?

Ommegang seasonal at Coquette

Almost at the end of ACBW, hope everyone is holding up OK!

Yesterday afternoon/evening was gorgeous in New Orleans and today is shaping up to be the same. I'm heading over to the Avenue Pub to drink some of the newer, smaller, local breweries' beer this afternoon - hey, did y'all know that the Avenue balcony opens at 1pm on Fridays? - and then head over to Crescent Pie and Sausage.

I saw a bunch of ACBW stuff around on social media, and I thought it would be fun to post through other folks' eyes (i.e., Twitter accounts).












And here's the schedule for today's ACBW events!
