NEW ORLEANS (TheStreet) -- Following my adventures from yesterday's first leg of my journey, I knew Saturday would bring even more entertainment and fun, given I would get to see what New Orleans has to offer for WrestleMania 30, as World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) hosts its biggest pay-per-view of the year. NOLA certainly didn't disappoint.
The atmosphere has been incredible down here, and it definitely feels like a vacation, even if I'm here for work. Seeing palm trees, the beautiful Le Pavillon hotel (free PB & J sandwiches!), and experiencing the friendly Southern hospitality can do wonders for not only the soul, but the mind as well. It really does put you in a great frame of mind, and helps melt all the troubles away, even if only for a few days.
New Orleans is a truly beautiful city, wrapped in the history of 18th and 19th century America, showcasing French-style decor and food. Places such as Cafe Du Monde, Bourbon Street, historic cemeteries, the house where Eli and Peyton Manning grew up all show the bright and vibrant culture of N'Awlins.
Here's the second part of my diary. Since you can't be here with me, this is a little look into the underbelly of New Orleans, and all the glitz, glamour and gumbo it has to offer.
9:20 am: Met my friend John for breakfast. Went to Cafe at the Square. Had an omelet with ham and onions, and a side of grits. Grits are good, but I loaded it with salt. May need cardiologist tomorrow.
