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.
