Time for Oysters!

We arrived late evening in New Orleans and we were hungry.  I had read several places that Acme and Felix’s were the place for oysters.  I had also read that Acme usually had a line down the street.  Since it was late Friday night we avoided the long Acme line down to the corner and had a short wait at Felix’s.

Our Annual December Getaway

This past December like the prior two we headed to a warmer climate for seafood and relaxation.  We tossed around going back to South Padre again, I swear we have the same conversation each August.  While it was a top contender it was not our winner for our December 2016 trip.

Rusty’s Seafood and Oyster Bar Take Two

While fishing in the morning our guides mentioned that Rusty’s had $.90 oyster happy hour.  We had been to Rusty’s on a prior trip but had forgotten about happy hour.  We arrived a little before 4pm for oyster happy hour.

We easily found an open table on the deck it was early and Tuesday.  We like to sit near the water side of the deck and watch the boats pass.  If its later afternoon we like to watch the cruise ships leave and wave back to the people.
