It’s good to be back in New Orleans after dining across the Gulf Coast over last weekend. It’s always good to come home. Today, I had a serious workout in the gym. Lifted tons of weight!

My first time in Florida in years. There were two things that brought us here. The beautiful beaches and the fact I heard this place made a great lobster tacos, and I’m a lobster lover!

Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376

Even though I’m WAYYYYY to young to remember 1950 style diners, I love going to them. I love the old fashioned decor and the 1950’s music they play to match. I’ve seen Frostops around New Orleans all my life and had no idea if it was a national, or local restaurant chain. After a quick… Continue reading Frostop, Metairie, LA Report #376
