    this was taken right across the river from New Orleans River front , I dispatch the fleet right there and the flag pole pully on top had to be replaced. In the boat one your can see the Mississppi Queen paddle boat .

    Fun Fact , during the 2013 super bowl , there will be a HUGE sign on the river by the French Quarter , the co. I work for is providing the Barge that the sign is going to be sitting on . a lot of people wont care , but I think it is cool.

    That's cool...I REALLY want to go to NoLa, it's my #1 domestic destination right now. I'm going to try to go in the spring before the baby is born.

    I'm also a big fan of zydeco and blues music, and in August 2009 I went to a jazz festival where most of the musicians were from New Orleans, and they were all like "WE'RE HERE TO CELEBRATE THE SAINTS WINNING THE SUPERBOWL!!". I thought it was really cute, and I love the Saints and Drew Brees and Rosie Ledet and A Confederacy of Dunces and cajun food and so many New Orleans things

    Have you seen treme on HBO Milo? They have some amazing music on there.
    If you want Spring time Milo , Keep in mind Mardi gras Is split this Year due to the Super Bowl

    Adrianne , I will keep this thread Updated once they start building the sign , From what i hear during pregame they will show a time lapse video of it being built and floated over.
    I just love things like that.

    My mom used to watch Treme - I'll look up the soundtrack!

    Also, I don't think I want to go for Mardi Gras...it looks like a lot of fun, but I'd rather the major tourist season. I was thinking about going in April, if you know of anything fun happening then.
