Trip Report Annual Trip to NOLA - Satchmo and Flooding ?!?

We typically visit Nola near or around my BDay in August which typically coincides w.the Red Dress Run and Dirty Linen. Due to an unforeseen deal, we landed there a week early this year and made an effort to attend Satchmo Fest & White Linen. As it is w/travel, seldom do things go as planned.
We flew into Nola Friday, My GF from Jax, me from Clt. We stayed at the Royal Barracks Guest House w/in crawling distance of Satchmo Fest & Frenchmen St. Great location and host. Rooms are smallish but ideally located + we were granted a 12:30 check out for Monday.
Upon a quick check-in we both due to tight connections headed for Three Muses. - Great Band, great food, great drinks...our trip was off to an outstanding start. We shared (OK, just an FYI we pretty much share everything in regards to food) - Olives, cheese plate and the lamb sliders....and wanted no more. We were happy we had ordered as we ate, so to speak. We caught some additional tunes up & down Frenchmen Incl. a great bunch of kids (a brass band) who we saw nearly every night. We also wandered by Satchmo Fest and caught some tunes from outside the venue. All in all a great start to our adventure...

Next Sat. The St. Roch Market, Baccahal and the total lack of transportation options when it rains 8" in a few hours in NOLA.
