Saturday Night in New Orleans
April 19. Saturday.
I’m not sure how it happened, but we didn’t turn in ’til 3AM.
The wedding was a kick. Jason’s brother, Jake, reeled in the grammy-nominated cajun band, The Lost Bayou Ramblers. Jambalaya, shrimp etouffee, grits, bread pudding, and ginger mint juleps topped the menu.
True to the cajun tradition, Jason and Miranda jumped the broom. From what I’m told, this is an old tradition from an age when ministers were not available. As a symbol of the couple’s bond, they would jump over a broom together. Wiki this for accuracy. I’m rolling with this explanation for now.
We closed at the Spotted Cat on Frenchman Street. Cool jazz band with a trombonist as the lead.
