We went into the quarter to eat lunch. Then we went to a bar on Bourbon, The Old Absinthe House. We've been going here a few years. Its a good place to people-watch. And they have AMAZING bloody mary's (my fave).
I also wanted to share this video. This guy was awesome! He was a one-man band in the quarter.
Then we headed toward uptown to watch the parade. We packed an ice chest, two chairs, and a case of Bud Light! We had to walk about 9 blocks from where we parked to get to the beginning of the parade route.
So here are a few of my favorite floats. Sorry for the bad quality. Its tough to take pics with your phone as the floats are passing, especially standing behind people.
|Will Ferrell- I totally missed him. His float rolled first. The float said "More Cowbell" on front!|
|King Kong- its tradition for the crowd to throw the beads at this float!|
|Can't remember the name of this one, but it was pretty!|
And then on the way home as we were driving I snapped this picture of the dome all lit up!
Can't wait until next year! Maybe by then Husband won't be working in public accounting and we can celebrate a little more!
