One last day in "Da town"

Up at a good time to dress and get our breakfast downstairs in the hotel breakfast room. Cereal, juice, yogurt, a sweet roll and coffee. Then back up to our room and shower and pack up for check out by 11 a.m.
We are going to stay in town today to be able to make the New Orleans TravBuddy Meetup at 5 p.m. at the Crescent City Grill.
But with hours to spend between checking out of the hotel and the meetup we try to figure out something to do. The GPS sometimes comes in handy for such a thing. Ask for Landmarks and it gives lots in all directions. So off we go for about two hours of sightseeing of the first kind.
Then we did a little shopping, a little strolling, a little listening to some cool jazz and soon enough it was nearing 4:30 and time to check out the Crescent City Grill. And who was sitting at the second table inside the door but our old friend Mark (Travelman727). We talked and talked and learned a few more tid bits of information until we decided to move back and get an area that would be more suitable for a larger group. We waited for quite some time before Adam (apoloz) showed up. He is from the area and had just gotten off work. A little while later Dana (Jerseygirl67) and her girl friends ( Alice and Betty) came in. And finally Malvin (malvin_soh) came in. It made for a small but great meetup. We had some really good food, a few suds, and some giggles and laughs. Even a few pics.
