Fiorellas Fabulous Fried Chicken

If you are in New Orleans and you want to try a local favorite then this article “Fiorellas Fabulous Fried Chicken” looks at a great choice. There are additional links below with other great food choices when you are in New Orleans.

People come to New Orleans for all kinds of reasons and for some that reason is food.  If you love food there are few places better than N’awlins to indulge that passion. I always get the question, “Where can I get good food in New Orleans?”  Now really, how am I supposed to answer that?  Just about anywhere you turn are some really great places, but if you are looking for the best fried chicken in the Big Easy it has got to be Fiorella’s. Hands down.  If you don’t believe me just ask Southern Living Magazine.

Fiorella’s is located across from the New Orleans French Market at 45 French Market Place, but also has an entrance on Decatur St.  The menu is quite extensive and includes some traditional N’awlins fare like over stuffed po’boys and thick, spicy gumbo. It even stretches to things like Liver and Onions, pastas and fried pickles to name but a few.  If you don’t feel like getting out, no problem, Fiorella’s delivers in the French Quarter. You really should make the effort to dine in though; the experience is as enjoyable as the chicken and the tab is easy on the wallet .

My suggestion is find a seat and order a big frosted goblet of beer and a plateful of piping hot, crispy fried chicken and prepare to be amazed by this kickin’ chicken.  Just another little tip, let the pieces of the crispy golden brown skin crumble into the bowl of warm home-made mashed potatoes covered in brown gravy.  Yum.  Are you hungry yet?  Fiorella’s is a fun, casual place with the feel of being at your Mom’s for a big family meal.  Don’t be surprised if you are carrying on a conversation with the whole dining room between mouth watering bites.

This is a favorite hangout for locals, and you never know who might stop in. Fortunate are the New Orleans visitors who find out about Fiorella’s fabulous fried chicken before they leave town.  You can bet it will be one of their first stops on the next trip.  Steaming hot from the first piece to the last this chicken is worth a return trip all by itself. We are talking a whole new degree of finger-licking!

City of New Orleans

NOTE: THIS VIDEO IS OUTDATED AND IS TO BE REVISITED & REVISED WHEN TIME ALLOWS. HOWEVER, BY POPULAR DEMAND, I WILL LEAVE THE ORIGINAL VERSION ONLINE. WHEN THE NEW VERSION IS UPLOADED, THIS VERSION WILL REMAIN UNAFFECTED. THANK YOU FOR VIEWING. This is obviously my most popular video to date, telling the story of favored overnight passenger train running between Chicago and New Orleans. Since then it’s logged over 300000 views as the past of American railroading and travel are relived by the viewers. For most, it’s a train of not so long ago that reminds us of how things have changed since then. I call it nostalgia. At some point, I plan to do an updated version of this very much loved video as you can see the techniques you see here are out of date compared to where I am now. Original description: This is a video dedicated to the Illinois Central’s most famous daytime train. It mostly contains footage of MSTS, but there is a clip or two of TRS2006 and an excursion train me & dad followed to Cookeville back in October of 2005. Enjoy!

Why do girls flash their boobs for cheap plastic beads on Bourbon Street?

Bourbon Street

Are these girls on Bourbon Street just really drunk or just tourists? or Both?

Bourbon Street

Bourbon Street

Well the answer to your question is both. The female tourists get drunk before the parade on Bourbon Street starts and then a float rider either persuades the girl to flash for some beads she wants or she just flashes for fun. Its usually only tourists on Bourbon Street though because people from here are used to getting beads and they probably have garbage bags full of beads at home, the other reason girls from here don’t flash is because they know they’ll get arrested if it is not Mardi Gras.

Finding a Reputable Dating Agency

Dating agencies are a great way to meet new people, especially when you feel as though you keep running into the same people in the same places. Internet dating has become very popular, but local and national dating agencies still exist to hook people up face to face. While Internet dating can be a lot of fun, dating agencies can also prove very useful. To have a good time and meet quality people, one has to find not just a dating agency, but a reputable dating agency.

If you are in the market for a new agency, ask your friends what dating agencies they have used. Word of mouth is how many dating agencies survive, and when you get the recommendation of a friend or family member, that means a lot more than getting a flyer on your windshield or seeing a commercial while viewing your nightly television. Dating agencies all have something different to offer, so you also need to determine what you want and expect of an agency before you decide on one for you.

When you contact dating agencies, you should interview them as much as they interview you. Ask questions about what clientele they target, and what your expectations should be when you work with them. If you only want to date a specific type of person, be up front about this so that you can take advantage of your exposure through dating agencies. Check out your dating agency, and be sure that they are reputable, even if you have to ask for references.

My Experiences with Dating Agencies: I never could have imagined that dating agencies would bring back romance back into my life. After my wife died two years ago, I plunged wholeheartedly into my medical career. There was no social life for me beyond the white walls of the hospital where I worked as a medical practitioner. I longed for a mate who would understand me and kindle the same kind of spark in me as my beloved wife did.

During one of my lunch breaks, I happened to read an interesting article about dating agencies. Until that point in time, I believed that dating agencies were meant for people with personality flaws, big time introverts, or for people who had ulterior motives like scamming someone out of her money and modesty. However, that article set me thinking positively about trying out a dating agency. Just after I finished my days work, I logged into one of the computers and surfed an online dating side. What I saw made me feel interested, and curious to know more.

I checked through some of the profiles, and to my amazement found some like-minded men who were rather cute and seemed to have honorable intentions. I registered for a dating website and prayed that my personal contact details were kept private and my information was not given to anybody until I gave the consent. My doubts were laid to rest when I saw genuine responses coming from people who were interested in knowing more about me. The dating agency just sent me a brief profile about them and gave me the liberty to pursue or reject them.

The online dating agency stuck to its promise about the confidentiality factor, and passed on to me the information of men who met my picture of an ideal man. I particularly began to forge a steady friendship and relationship with a man from New Orleans who was an electrical engineer. To our amazement, both of us had a lot of common interests and tastes, from television programs to food. We hit it off like long lost friends. We met in person after a month, and the relationship has only grown stronger thanks to the dating agency. Trust me, dating agencies work wonders!
