“Ugh, if we’re going out tonight, I’m going to need some fat pants time.”

The New Orleans stalwart Commander’s Palace is an experience. But after a three-hour lunch, you need a break. Our bellies full, our brains moderately buzzed, we made our way back to a Bywater Airbnb.

That oasis, stocked with NOLA beers, handles of Morgan, and an amazing backyard proved to be the perfect afternoon destination. Old friends caught up, new friendships were forged, and the whole lot set out for further adventures.
