Kick Off to New Orleans Also Known as "How to Make Your TWW Go Faster"

This TWW completely sucks.  I knew it would be hard, I never knew it would be this hard.
Keeping that in mind, when a business trip to New Orleans had to be planned (and wow, planning travel around these two week intervals is hard!) I thought I'd go down the weekend prior and enjoy myself.
Since K works as a consultant and travels M-TH, she can fly anywhere for the weekend--it doesn't have to be NYC.  So, with my company and her company paying for our flights--we figured it would be a nice getaway to wait out those last days before testing.

Last night I was invited, courtesy of the New Orleans Visitor's Center to dinner at Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.  My steak was delicious and it officially kicked off my 6-days of New Orleans eating!

Afterwards, we were treated to the Broadway show, "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" which was a great production.  We had the chance to go backstage to meet the cast afterwards and as much as I really wanted to shake hands with James Earl Jones and Terrence Howard, after a huge dinner and a 3-hour play what I needed to do was go home, pack for New Orleans and get some sleep.
Call me crazy.  Or just old.
