Margaritaville - New Orleans

On Thanksgiving Day, 2003, we floated to the Crescent City and paddled our way down to the French Quarter to Margaritaville for Thanksgiving Dinner.  A half pound of peel and eat shrimp, and an order of conch fritters for starters, followed by the chef's special of the day:  cherry wood smoked turkey!  What a feast.  The only disappointment was discovering that the store was closed.  And then more rain.  There is always something special about the French Quarter.  But in the rain it is truly magical.

New Orleans Margaritaville Jeep

I had always admired pictures of this from the web.  I wonder if I can afford to get the Fruitcakemobile done.

For all those doubting Thomases out there.  Yes.  The Mayor was really there.

So which do you prefer:  Casual dining or live music?
