Semi-Homemades Sandra Lee WDSUs Margaret Orr, its supposed to be in the low 40s tomorrow. But nola.com says mid 50s and Im going with that - and some Jack Daniels. I suggest you quit your bellyaching about this cold weather and come out and get you some New Orleans style exercise: a four-hour long cocktail-fortified cross-town dance trek courtesy of the Lady Jetsetters Social Aid and Pleasure Club.
Now about the route... There isnt one. That is to say, the club hasnt published one to my knowledge but I have it on good authority that it begins at Dryades and Delachaise at 12pm. Ill put ten more on that intel and give you last years route - obviously its not precise but they stops are generally the same albeit in a different order. For the uninitiated, this is old school second line adventure, before you had route sheets published all nice and fresh online. Follow this general outline and the freshly laid tracks of street trash and youll be fine.
