Bandtastic4 LIVE in New Orleans

the ride up was so much fun.  we started the trip around 9:30-ish and pandora/youtube were our best companions along with our creative minds to dig up old 90s/early 2000s urban and pop classics to recite rhymes to lol…by far the best road trip in a minute!  the moon was my guide along boring i10 but my riding partner was awesome in keeping me awake and alert.  below is a BRIEF account of our NOLA IN ONE DAY experience

3:45am: arrived to the sleep shack where the computers denied access thus we couldn’t exactly get our rooms…we were to be stuck out for an hour or so…the consensus? spend our waiting time wisely

4:45am: strolling on canal st. Bought two wooden Jesus head pieces for $10…why?

5am: At sneaky Pete’s at 135 Chartres st enjoying an Abita’s Covington strawberry beer with my carmate.

5:30am: spotted “harrah’s” casino

5:45am: watching a craps table go live

6:20am: cafe du monde flow #’sugary’ crack

7am: damanique’s aslp. I head back to the hotel

7:15am-….: nabbing extra breakfast for when we wake up

8am: in bed updating this blog…

9:45am: woke up in such a painful way [#teamnosleep]

11:30am: all cleaned and fed…preparing to leave the hotel until i chat it up with some kentucky and louisville official affiliates. they wanted my picture so i obliged lol 🙂
