Y’all may or may not know that the following picture is a farce:
I am not, in fact, taken. This girl’s a single lady! Which is generally a positive life choice for me at this point but on Valentine’s day, it can get a little depressing. Lucky for me, I have a cute n sassy single lady roommate who shares my love of wine. That’s right, I went on a date with Andrea for V-day. For the sake of sharing the joy that is the single life of the young professional, the following is a picture history of our magical night together.
Waitin’ on the streetcar! We learned how to use the NORTA rideline – such an educational outing!
First stop – CAFE DU MONDE! One order and one large hot chocolate, please! P.S. I had never had their hot chocolate and it is a must. Do it. Now. Do it now.
Were you aware that Cafe Du Monde has the most graffitied up bathroom in the whole city? Neither were we! I was also surprised at how narrow it was – the space between the toilet and the wall in front of your face would not be adequate if it were the space between two cars in a parking lot. Large humans should find another place to pee. Gettin in touch with our gangsta side (WARNING: both these girls grew up in suburbia, USA)
Next up: Pat O’Briens!! Andrea had never been to the piano bar OR had a hurricane – two essentials for every tourist (and therefore every resident) of the city. BOOM. Doin’ it. Unfortunately the crowd was a bunch of old depressed men with no dates who were requesting the saddest songs ever so after bringing our bubbly personalities for four songs (including Rocket Man by Elton John), we peaced outta there…
…But not before finishing up that Hurricane. This is where the pictures end, as we headed out to Bourbon after.
Happy Valentine’s Day to all the single ladies out there! I hope you had at least a fraction of the fun that we did!!
