Mother’s (New Orleans)




Isn’t there an old saying that you shouldn’t eat at a place called “Mother’s?”  Or maybe the saying goes, “Never play poker with a man named ‘Doc,” and don’t eat at a place called “Mom’s.”

A Restaurant Guide to New Orleans


Bourbon Street in New Orleans


New Orleans is my favorite city in America.  Over the next 18 days and nights, I’ll be here and will share with you what I love about this special place.  With the final WSOP Circuit stop of the season now happening at Harrah’s New Orleans (May 8-20), followed by the WSOP National Championship (May 22-24), many poker players and their colleagues will be coming into town, as well.  Hope to see you in the Big Easy!

You might ask — at what precise hour of the day were my two excursions?

My first venture ended at 2:20 pm.  My second venture was completed at 1:05 pm.
