BCS Party in the Quarter

LSU may have lost the big game, but it was still great fun walking around the Quarter on Monday afternoon.


Nola, Nopsi, Riley, and I headed downtown after Riley woke up from his morning nap. We parked at QP’s, picked her up, and walked over to Felipe’s for lunch. There were people everywhere, mostly decked out in either purple and gold or crimson and white, eating, drinking, laughing, carousing, and generally having a good ol’ time.

We met up with Jeff, Erin, Trisha, and Jenn at Felipe’s and were lucky enough to score two tables next to each other. The food was great, it wasn’t overly crowded, and we had a really fun time. Riley had his first tortilla chip (as well as a taste of Nopsi’s long island iced tea…..), and he was his usual charming self to anyone that looked his way.

After lunch we decided to walk up to Bourbon to see just how crazy it was. I knew we probably wouldn’t be able to walk back that way because we had the stroller with us, but I’m glad we took a peak at the throngs of people crowding the Quarter’s most famous street. It looked just like it does during Mardi Gras. Riley didn’t know which way to look first, there were so many people and things to see.

On our way back to QP’s, we ran into Ashley and Greg, who were on their way to see Scott and the rest of the Tiger Pimp Nation at Embers Steakhouse. So we took a little detour and went back up to Bourbon to say hi. I’m so glad we did!

We said goodbye to Scott, Ashley, and Greg at this point and headed back to QP’s. Riley-bean was looking mighty tired but seemed content to relax in his stroller with his paci for the walk back. However, once we were up in QP’s apartment he got his second wind. After all, there was a kitty to chase, beads to play with, and a feather boa to try on. He stayed pretty busy.




I sure am glad the game was played in New Orleans this year. No matter what the outcome was, there was one heck of a party going on downtown. And huge thanks to QP for your hospitality……and the free rockin’ parking space.

Geaux Tigers!
