Default There just aren't any good cajun places around here..

Around the house, that is. There used to be one, but it was a pretty poorly set up place and from the news we heard they had landlord issues right from the start (they only ever had a temporary Cert. of Occupancy from the city).

There's a place downtown that sort of *was* a cajun place, and they still have some decent dishes, but they're too busy trying to be a club and sushi bar too.

Why I am I mentioning all this? Simple. I want cajun food. GOOD cajun food. And if they won't bring the cajun food to me? Then, dammit.....

And there aren't any good Chicago deep dish pizza places around here.

I'd love some crawfish ettouffee right now....

No pictures yet... but he's just like his picture and his wife is lovely!!!

We're meeting for drinks and jazz tonight. My neighbour is joining us as well.

DBA and John Boutte tonight. If any of you ever watched the HBO series Treme, John Boutte sings the opening/credits song. And DBA has finally gone completely smoke free! In addition to having a great line of the dark boozes (bourbons, scotches, whiskeys) it's a great place to hear music.

I'll report later

I don't know the answer to your snapfish question but why don't you upload to NCT directly from your computer using the attachments device (the little paper clip).

Oh, I'm so jealous! Thanks so much, Ronjohn, for letting us all live vicariously through you! Did you ever see so many handsome/beautiful people? Great pics - and everyone has such lovely big smiles on their faces.
