Dinner on the Riverwalk

Cross another thing off of our to-do list. Today we had dinner at the Riverwalk.

The Riverwalk is basically a huge mall sitting on the banks of the Mississippi River. There's a food court on the side that's near us so we went in and had a bite to eat. I got some pizza and Aubie got some Mexican. We ate on tables that overlook the river and the CCC.

A lot of the shops have reopened but the food court area is really hit or miss. Most of the places haven't opened yet so your options are really limited.

We noticed that there is a trolley street car line in front of the place that will take you to the F.Q. We would have taken one but you need $1.25 in exact change and we don't carry quarters. It's still awesome though because now we realize that we have a quick way to get to the F.Q. The Riverwalk is only about 4 blocks from our apartment so we could walk that, get on the trolly and ride it to wherever we need to go. It goes all the way to Esplanade, which is the edge of the Quarter on the opposite side from us.

This sure beats a 30 minute walk. Especially when it rains.

If y'all want to become naturalized locals, you gotta call the "trolley" the STREET CAR. Repeat after me: Street Car.
