The infamous Bourbon street, night time action

The French Quarter!

The food is amazing! Ranking in the top 3 as far as the places I have been. We had dinner last night at Antoine's to DIE for! The fried oysters with pate' Ahh! Magnificent! This restaurant is voted one of the 1,000 places to see before you die, and has been around since the 1800's how's that for history!

Countdown to THE BIG EASY... Special Event 2010

Totally excited about the Special Event Show, this year it will be held in New Orleans. First time visitor to the city and I am really looking forward to seeing what all the hub bub is about.

Check out the tradeshow site...

A week of networking and education with industry professionals. This business is all about schmoozing, boozing, building relationships and learning a thing or two along the way through collaboration with peers.

I decided to start a countdown till I leave and keep everyone posted and in on all the exciting updates up until the show and during the show.. I am leaving earlier to attend all the ISES leadership meetings/events, as the show starts Tuesday. There will be some exciting tidbits live via Twitter/ Facebook and recaps each night via the blog. Stay tuned!
