Krewe of Boo Halloween Float, New Orleans, Oct 30, 2014

[Oct 30, 2014 – New Orleans, LA]

Hey!!! I am in New Orleans for Halloween. To kick off the weekend, I boarded the Float for Krewe of Boo. It was cool. Two hours-ish throwing stuff from the float to the gathered people. Then it was party time back at Mardi Gras World to the wee hours of the morning. Here are the pics (click on the pic or the link):

GLOW in Oracle, Arizona 2014

[Oct 11, 2014 – Oracle, AZ]

GLOW for 2014 is over. It was weirdly cool. It’s at the Triangle L Ranch in the boonies – in Oracle, AZ. It’s about a one hour drive north of Tucson. GLOW is an yearly event. It got so big, the owner split the event into four weekend nights. The desert is lit up with lights all over. And weird glow-y artwork from local artists. And bands. And pie. No, it’s not a rave. No, there is no alcohol. It’s a family thing, it’s a young to old thing. And everyone wears something that, well, glows. It was almost like a sci fi convention. Hey, even the Doctor showed up. Well, the TARDIS was there but the Doctor must have slipped away in the darkness 🙂 It was really different. And fun. Catch it next year.

Key West Food and Wine Fest, Florida 2011


[Jan 26-30 2011 – Key West, FL US] Liked the first annual food and wine fest last year, so I went to the “Second Annual Key West Food and Wine Festival”. It was great. The Friday wine tasting event at “The Little Whiten House” was cool. The event was only three hours though, last year I think it went for five hours… I talked to the event organizer and he said the idea was to do the tasting, then to hit the resturants while it’s still early in the night. OIC…

The “Duvall Street Uncorked” event on Saturday was great. Merchants on Duvall Street that participate in the festival serve food and/or wine. The idea is that fest goers visit the stores and look at their wares and hopefully buy something; or come back later to shop there. Well, it was fun visiting all the stores (and a bunch were different from last year so it was interesting).
