Weekend Re-cap

Happy Mardi Gras, everyone!  We had such a delightful time watching the parades this weekend.  New Orleans is one of those amazing cities where you can relish in tradition, but there is also always something new to enjoy!  Here are a few of the new spots we went while visiting (and don't worry, we still hit up the good ole boys like the Carousel Bar at the Montelone and Pat O's!)...

 After watching the Friday night parades, we stopped into Capdeville, a charming hole in the wall off of Camp Street, near Gallier Hall.  It was dimly lit with exposed brick and fun wallpaper and food was delish.  Nothing like a hearty burger or fried red beans and rice to re-charge you after a long night of parade-watching!
A friend we were with brought us these yummy macaroons from Sucre.  We did not make it to the actual store, but they have so many goodies online!  Any of their sweet treats would be a perfect Mardi Gras (or anytime, really) gift.  By the way, do you know what the Mardi Gras colors stand for?

Another restaraunt we tried was Manning's, and yes, of the Archie/Olivia/Peyton/Eli/Cooper variety.  It's basically a nice sports bar with TVs on the wall, a section of recliners, and OK food.  It wasn't nearly low-key or trendy as Capdeville, but come on?  We had to check it out!  There were tons of Manning family photos on the walls, and I absolutely fell in love with the ceiling of our dining room!  Those oatmeals walls with that warm tobacco ceiling was gorge.  Wondering if I could DIY that ceiling in our den...!!
