Trip Report Nola for 50th ! Red Dress Run, Dirty Linen Night & More !

Jump to last reply

I have traveled to New Orleans for this particular weekend for several years & could think of no better way to celebrate my 50th B-day, gf in tow.
So I cashed in miles for tix but could only fly out of CLT on Thursday evening & return on Monday (who wants to spend more miles for less time in New Orleans ?!?)
We had made reservations for the Monteleone for the first 3 nights & since we had to 'add on' Sunday night I used points to stay our last night on the Best Western St. Christopher on Canal & Magazine (about 3 blocks away). We figured by Sunday night we would be happy w/just about any bed anyway. So - away we go....

The ride from CLT Thursday night was a bumpy one at first as we had to pass through some thunderstorms to get up to cruising altitude but was uneventful after that...we arrived in Nola about 10pm & set out to find some oysters & a cold beverage. We landed around the corner on Bourbon, pulled up a chair had a dozen & a half oysters & a couple of Dixies to start our evening. We meandered in & out of 'joints' on Bourbon St. but started @ Mayfields Jazz Room in the Sonesta, which is one of our favorite hang-outs. We got a little dancing in & continued to peruse Bourbon St. until the wee hours... a good start to our trip...

Next - The 'new' Monteleone
