my nola bike

sorry for the late post — i been bombed these past few with some upcoming projects this summer.

snuck down to nola end of april for a visit and tried everything at least once. the bourbon, the beignets, the po’ boys. even a revolving carousel bar and squirrel gumbo. the man shot them himself and slow cooked them with spiced andouille sausage smoked over oak. how’s that for southern hospitality!

i was really excited to visit some nola stores on my trip. i got to meet the people holdin’ down the south and took a few photos for reference. you’ll have to endure the series to get to the juice.

start of the trip, i went to dan’s for a bike ride. check out his pool. i don’t even have a dish washer.
