NOLA Now: New Orleans at Night

August 29, 2010  

Posted by Kassi Schmitt

For our last night here, we decided to find a restaurant in the heart of New Orleans. We all took a step out of our comfort zones and even tried alligator for the first time (which surprisingly does taste a lot like chicken)! As we walked back along Bourbon Street and some of the other side streets to our hotel, we really got the chance to look around and see the truly diverse and original group of people that make up the heart and soul of New Orleans. It seems that everyone has their own story and contributes to what makes NOLA such a strong and proud city in their own unique way. We even got the opportunity to speak to a tarot card reader, Elizabeth. After Hayley sat down with her to see what her future has in store (and her future does indeed have a positive outlook- Elizabeth predicted Hayley would be very successful and makes lots of money), she told us her heart wrenching story of how she survived on $20 and one tank of gas after Katrina hit.
