You may or may not have been wondering where I've been off to. I've been in New Orleans for the New Orleans Roadfood Festival. I've learned a lot.

$30 SPANISH HAM:  On a portion of that poboy
Sadly, Dizzy's Gypsy Bistro was unable to attend — for reasons that I may or may not be allowed to share with you, so stay tuned. But I was exposed to different foods from across the United States, impressively good streetfood that should be shared.

I also got to witness (and consume part of) the World's Longest Oyster Po'Boy Saturday morning, a 300 foot long monster created by 30 New Orleans restaurants. It took an hour to complete and was gone in a minute and a half, consumed by a hungry yet polite crowd. The event was free to everyone who came along.

I've also sampled some of the local cuisine, as always, and witnessed some craziness. When I get back late tonight I'll likely be the only person in town with a sunburn; it was in the 80s here Saturday and Sunday. There will be more tales. Until then, converse amongst yourselves.

AHA Vice President Jeremy Fisher said the first licenses to grow experimental plots of hemp in the state should be issued by the Arkansas State Plant Board next spring.
