Off the Clock in New Orleans & Eating Fried Alligator


Up until recently, the thought of New Orleans meant one of two things to me – partying at Mardi Gras or listening to Jazz. But, after my first visit to The Big Easy a few weeks ago, all I can think about is food. This might be because I was accompanied on the trip by a co-worker who loves food more than life (like, seriously, he loves food like…a lot), but more than that, I really think that the adventurous delicacies I sampled in NOLA remain my most vivid memories.

Traveling for work is still definitely work, but being that you have to eat, I think it’s always fun  (at the very least) to experience some sort of food-related adventure. And that, my friends, is exactly what my ClevverTV pals and I did whilst in New Orleans.

One thing I want to note here: it is legal to drink in public in New Orleans’ French Quarter. That said, it’s obviously essential that you grab a Hurricane to sip while you walk the balcony lined streets of the historic town. Also, on a semi-related note, I highly recommend you wear close-toed shoes at all times. This is not a place you want any part of your body touching the ground. Cool place, but some gnarly stuff happening…and who knows what’s in those puddles on the streets…
