Damn, That’s Good Louisiana Gumbo

Louisiana Gumbo The day after my first Mardi Gras, the streets were still wet from the midnight clean-up and most of the revelers were headed straight to the airport, heads heavy and hung-over. So I had the luxury of feeling like I had the city to myself. I wandered delightfully
