Item for Bucket List 2011
Sip Mint Juleps on the Columns Hotel porch on a summery afternoon in New Orleans, take the trolley car to the historic Commander’s Palace’s the prix fixe dinner menu, and listen to unabridged hot American jazz as it was first invented to sound at Preservation Hall. After the first act, we’d hop into a waiting towncar and grab Cafe Dumond’s benigets to-go enroute to our waiting private Cessna Citation X pre-cleared for take-off to Los Angeles
Thanks to the time difference, we’d arrive into early nightlife by grabbing a few drinks at the Villains Tavern and joke how some bouncers actually look like cartoon villains and transition to craft cocktails in the Engine Room at the Prohibition-era Edison Lounge. Hop back to LAX pre-cleared into our comfy Cathay Pacific First Class beds, chase the sun, and wake up in a Shanghainese afternoon with incredible cuisine, revitalized Asian urban culture.
Thanks for the idea Trevs!
