this week join us for van life in New
Orleans as we Street camp around the city, Kait finds us the best happy hours
in town we learned some history along the way and I eat a sandwich as big as
my head welcome to New Orleans
thank you excited to be back I love this town there is a fun town only place you can get drive-through
daiquiri be curious to see how van friendly New Orleans is it could be
interesting I’m just a little worried about leaving our van parked on the
street first stop visitor center
I love getting all my pamphlets
you do have a bit of a problem when it comes to
visitor centers
I love flipping through all the guides to see what you what new
things are going on in the city hey did I lock the door you wanna go check
first sign of Aging short term memory loss him but realize oh I just hit the button
again it was actually walking not my best work three o’clock we have
an hour until happy hour go find a place to park good good job
thank you Oh unexpected spot pulled right around the corner and here it was
I ran over after filming that last night I was like oh he found a spot already
well it’s filling up quickly so I think this might be our spot for the night what’s your favorite thing about New
Orleans , The food
okay really yeah did you check the parking signs I did the only sign I
saw was just ahead of where we parked it was for drop-off only okay by the way
we’re parked right next to a mansion I think we’ll be okay
yes Pinet mansion has a very big fence their offenses everywhere here let
should tell you something now what is your favorite thing about New Orleans stop walking backwards the sidewalks are
very uneven and I don’t want to take a spill but I love the food in New Orleans
I love the people the culture and I’m really excited to go back to the World
War two Museum that’s probably one of the things I really love the most about
the city is the history that you can absorb and learn about just this whole
area we got a Christmas present from one of our patrons Thank You Diane who said
use this for something frivolous Pappy Van Winkle is completely frivolous the
Diane off to dinner where do you want to go
eat I was thinking we hit up the place that the woman at the visitor center
recommended all right what was the go he owes me owes huh an ey o W apostrophe s
all right back to the van well the vans still there it’s a good sign always a
good sign look at this person oh my goodness
well it’s a good thing no one perks on mine does I need directions keys oh I can’t even
see you the dashcam setup after those oysters fried chicken and
the what was that cornbread cornbread dress cornbread dressing I am stuffed
I’ve never had cornbread dressing before and that was good all right now we need
to find a place to spend the night yes street parking in New Orleans to the van
the van how’d you sleep
I’ve definitely slept better there is a freight train or something I don’t know
if it just kept going back and forth or if there were ten freight trains that
came through here the cars going by didn’t bother me so much it’s just the
trains all night long gonna make some coffee
get some bread first and I’ll make coffee you with the bread I was so game the bread was amazing I
had to go back to make my coffee and bring it in
and I loved that it was 100% vegan everything in there okay
world war two museum let’s do it good but a bit better pot of coffee I think the rains are coming
it was raining pretty hard last night who was you love that – Kim well I like
having it if something happens in front of us like yesterday someone cut us off
and there’s a little button that you hit and it records you can set I have it set
by I think for five minutes and you can save that specifically
it’ll keep recording in a loop anytime you turn the key on and the power is on
it’ll start recording so I thought it’s a good kind of little insurance policy
to have in case we do get in an accident something happens we cease a squash run
across the road we can hit record and you guys actually believe that we saw it
you know that sort of thing there’s some rough roads I have to compliment you on your parking
job thank you see we are half a mile from the museum because parking over at
the museum was $25 for 10 hours or $30 for 24 hours might as well just walk the
half mile and save 25 bucks let’s put up all the shade the reason the World War two museum is
here in New Orleans is because of Andrew Higgins you want to find out why come on
down the museum and check it out it’s well worth the trip that was a very heavy experience today I
learned a lot not only about what happened over seas but also what
happened at home lot the process great experience for anyone who hasn’t
been highly recommended all right shall we walk off all of this
heavy experience and head to the French Quarter yes maybe grab a daiquiri or two
on the way you know exactly okay let’s go all right Milo what next
well we’re gonna take magazines straight all the way to the French Quarter and
along the way I think they’re few spots we might stop in it
well you mentioned a happy hour – I did well the happy hour is not on Magazine
Street but it’s at loop and they do 75 cent oysters and half-price cocktails
and I really like that place so maybe we’ll pop in for a cocktail and you can
ask for more oysters I love it all right off to the next one after the
next five what is the next one I don’t know I feel like walk towards the bridge definitely in the French Quarter but the
hot mess begin I meant everyone else so we don’t have any reservations for
dinner and Kate is trying to get us into Cape hauls she doesn’t think it’s gonna
be possible I said we might be able to do it open
for another ten minutes okay you want to walk around and you come back sound good so now Kate is calling a few
different places to see if we can get reservations
apparently Kate Paul’s may not work out what’s the deal why are you walking so
fast the funny thing here is Kate really doesn’t drink so she’s racing to happy
hour so I can have a half-price cocktail or whatever what’s that I know but it’s
mostly cocktails we’re running basically for poutine I don’t know I might turn Fry’s braised
short rib mozzarella curd don’t go any further why are we walking
so slow run into something we made it and I have 20 minutes to spare before
happy hour in dinner was fantastic now it’s raining
and expect it so we have to run two blocks to the gas club where she’s like
which way am I going that way no the other way
are you sure are you 100% sure yes I’m going for it wait oh shit think I’m
going the right way but I am very you can I’m walking quickly are you
Sazerac never had one so figured I tried and apparently it’s
known as the oldest American cocktail that was fun little gem was awesome good
times I like the Creole string beans yeah I
have to say though Sazerac not my style alright let’s go back to the manager
eight all right do you think the van will be there absolutely
I think it’s fine not really worrying much anymore
