New Orleans is gorgeous! Sparklingly gorgeous morning at the Crescent City Farmers Mkt. Sold a ton of books, thanks to Octavia Books, and had red bean tamales for breakfast. Tasted some amazing red mustard greens too (tis the season). Casamentos for lunch–three dozen oysters, Abita beers all around–and ran into good friends Peter and Maren, visiting from Brooklyn. Spotted New Orleans writer/author Julia Reed on her way in. Where to dine tonight….?
