when it's sleepytime down south

G and I are going to New Orleans in July for a quick getaway and I am excited beyond words! I've wanted to visit New Orleans for some time; the Garden District, shrimp n' grits, Bourbon Street, the quaint shops, beignets at Cafe du Monde, the haunted Hotel Monteleone, etc.

Not only will I get to experience all of the mystique and history of NOLA for the first time, but I may get a chance to enjoy a romantic "When It's Sleepytime Down South" kind of evening.  I have a feeling I'm going to fall in love with this city.

Ever the planner, I've started my search for the perfect dining establishment.  I'm bound and determined to find a quaint courtyard complete with twinkle lights and ambiance.  Here are some of my finds thus far.


Napoleon House Cafe & Bar

You forgot to mention our obsession with that song when we were kids. ;) But really, you're going to have so much fun on this trip! Can I fit in your suitcase?? xoxo
