Who's Going/The Louisiana Roadfood Eating Tour & Festival - Fri, 12/19/08 1:42 PM

I really don't know what my  schedule is going to look like in April, but I just bought 2 tickets anyway.  
 
I have never been on one of these trips so I can't comment on this format compared to years past.  But this sounds like one heck of a good time.    
 
Who else is going?

It would be a stretch for me. I may be in Albuquerque the 17th of April and then Lafayette, Louisiana on the 24th of April. I doubt I will be away long enough to stretch back to the beginning of April. We will be heading out for Class B campervan RV rallies in those two places.

I did the same as you, Joe.  I don't know whether the wife is up for it, but I bought them anyway.

MiamiDon-
I hope you do make it to NOLA.  No doubt you would have a great time and I would enjoy meeting you.

joerogo-
I can tell you from past history that the vast majority of people who attend the bus tours are people who don't post or post very little on Roadfood.  While it sure is nice to put faces to screennames, I have met many really nice lurkers, too.

buffetbuster, looking forward to it.  Hey I haven't given up on a Charlies Pool Room, Old Forge Pizza or Jozsa Corner Meat-up between now and then.
 
MiamiDon, Way to do it!  I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  I wonder what we could get on Ebay?
 
Davydd, remember you are retired.

Jan and I will have to pass on this one. She just doesn't have the time. We'll be thinking of all who do come--and missing you!

Rick, sorry to hear you can't make it.  I was convinced it would be a sure thing since we will practically be in your backyard.

Blizzardstormus, that is great to hear!  I am looking forward to meeting you, since Amy has already had the pleasure out in Iowa.  But I think I'll see you before then in March when I drive out to visit Amy!  Either way, it's a win-win for me.    Chris

Ayersian, Guess who stopped in for lunch on her way to Omaha today? Amy tried the hot beef & bread pudding this time. You really need to come out before she samples all the menu!

Great to hear you will be in NOLA!  Any chance you could sneak a slice of your mother's sour cream raisin pie in your suitcase?

Sundancer and Iwanago will be there.  We are driving down.  I have spent many months in NOLA and looking forward to the return trip.  I thin Stephen has done a outstanding job of getting this one together.  It sounds like a great time and I am looking forward to the event.

I was hoping we would hear from more people who are planning on being in New Orleans.

If it is an open invitation, I just may take you up on it.  Mosca's is a great place!

Sam & I would love to join y'all, but that's the week-end before French Quarter Festival, which we go to every year. Check that out... the food and music are incredible.

I wish you and Sam were going to be there, too.  But you live so close by, you can go there anytime you want.

Assuming my poor old Nissan doesn't give up the ghost before April, expect to see me there ( I'm currently accepting donations of regular-grade gasoline! )

We would love to be there, but we are going to NO the next week end for French Quarter Festival. Check it out thru Google. Incredible food and wonderful jazz. We go every year for this festival.

I know y';all will have a wonderful time... hey how could you not????

Thanks, UncleVic, but I just retired from Amtrak ( 34 years ), and after all the miserable trips I made across the country as an on-board service employee, I don't care to ever step foot on an Amtrak train again. Greyhound? Not hardly. And since I don't fly, it's drive or no-go.

Talk about timing! My plans to attend next month's NOLA event almost went up in flames two days ago. The ol' Nissan's catalytic converter went berserk on Wed., and the service dept. guy warned me that it might be as much as thirteen hundred buck$ to fix it. Aaaaggghh!! That definitely would have kept me at home next month. I got lucky though; it turned out to only be a $445 problem, and that's not enough to keep me away from 'Nawlins.

 Hello everyone this is Melissa & Mike from Louisiana. as of right now we're planing on joining you'll again this year.  We're just not sure where to buy the tickets or how much they are? We've read a lot of good information about the upcoming festival, but have seen nothing about prices or where to get tickets. If anyone can fill us in please email me at NRid1@aol.com.. Thanks

M & M Fire/Rescue, there is no entry fee, I believe you only pay for food. All the info can be found here:

I'm going to close this old thread. Stephen has opened a new thread for 2010. If someone wants to open a new Who's Going in 2010 feel free.
