Moon Walkin', New Orlean's Style


One of Miss Ginger's favorite places in New Orleans is the Moon Walk, which is the batture along the Mississippi river that forms the French Quarter bank. One of her favorite places to eat in New Orleans is the Moon Wok, a cute little family-owned Asian place in the midst of the gayborhood in the French Quarter. They have Chinese and Vietnamese fare, and the place is staffed by a bunch of young Asian students who are working their way through school. Very local, very comfortable, very delicious! While waiting for her bun (vietnamese noodles) Miss G brushed up in her Chinese Zodiac. She is a rabbit, as was her late mother and late brother (kinda scary in itself).

People born in the Year of the Rabbit are articulate, talented, and ambitious. They are virtuous, reserved, and have excellent taste. Rabbit people are admired, trusted, and are often financially lucky. They are fond of gossip but are tactful and generally kind. Rabbit people seldom lose their temper. They are clever at business and being conscientious, never back out of a contract. They would make good gamblers for they have the uncanny gift of choosing the right thing. However, they seldom gamble, as they are conservative and wise. They are most compatible with those born in the years of the Sheep, Pig, and Dog.

According to the gospel of the placemat, Miss Ginger should marry a pig or a sheep. If her math was correct, that means she needs to marry someone who is older than her by multiples of 6 or younger than her by multiples of 4. In the case of Dr. Todd (see previous post) Miss G would be willing to round. Up or down. Doesn't matter to her. She's easy.
After the Moon Wok she rounded the corner to her favorite Katrina refugee's place of business, the 700 Club at 700 Burgundy. She had a couple of FABULOUS Vox martinis. Man, that is some smooth vodka!! After that, she wandered back to her WWWWonderful room at the W (shouldn't they change the name of it now?). Anyho, it't off to beddy-bye, then out to the 'burbs for store visits tomorrow before returning to her motherland in the French Quarter. Tomorrow she's having din din with her BFF John from kindergarten (really, we've known each other that long!) and his handsome BF Will. Updates tomorrow. Toodles! Leave comments about your favorite dental, New Orleans, or BFF experience! And tell us your Chinese Zodiac sign! Miss G love comments: they're so "interactive"!

Hmm, the 700 Club...I'll have to remember that!

I'm a Tiger (so is Ken): Unpredictable, rebellious, colourful, powerful, passionate, daring, impulsive, vigorous, stimulating, sincere, affectionate, humanitarian, generous. Can be restless, reckless, impatient, quick-tempered, obstinate, selfish.

I'll go along with most of that, but I don't think I'm quick-tempered.

One of our more memorable Quarter adventures was a transsexual strip club. Oh my! We also laugh about Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop. The first time we went to NOLA, on our honeymoon, Ken and I stopped in there at the end of the night (or day? It was late...) for a drink. It was perfect...quiet, a little spooky, the firelight flickering on the brick walls. The next time we were there, with our friends Kim and Steve, we said we had to go there, it's a great place, etc.

Well, that night, the piano bar crowd was there in full force. Everyone was having a great time, but the guy was SO LOUD and often off-key! We all were just cracking up...we wanted a kind of quiet place to have a drink and talk about the day, and we ended up hearing "Piano Man" sung--BADLY--more than once. LOL!

Hugs, Beth

I'm a sheep (aka Goat or Ram).
Although I've never been to the Moon Wok it sounds like a great place to visit. Maybe a trip to Southern Decadence is in order this year.

I'm a sheep, too. We could be compatible friends. I already like your blog and New Orleans. :-)
