Colby! You're right. That dood seemed like a total badass (and talked like a sailor!).
I guess what I meant was --' wow! a fancy party with a bunch of dumb blonde party girls dancing under their rented tent drinking champagne?' = not my idea of a backyard BBQ (someone please invite me to one of those!) OR my expectation of what B would do on a visit to NOLA. Seems like it could have been so much better.
The shrimp boat dood was pretty cool (and sad -- he'll be the last of 3rd generation shrimpers? he's got his OWN neighborhood ladies!) and Chris, the writer, was alright except he didn't seem comfortable/as laid back as I would have guessed. I'll bet the Big Easy girls got a hard-on from him wearing their shirt.
And, YEAH, Jessie -- the comedian/bartender? WHATTA DOUCHE!!
His shit wasn't even funny - it was horrible!! Bourdain laughing the whole time?
Ok. I'll quit bitchin now -- I just wanted this to be as intersting, entertaining and unique as his other adventures that highlight the low-life -- stuff like some strange local characters, shit-holes and low-rent homes with down-home food, lots of boozing and tons of sarcasm (I'm sure he naturally went easy on the sarcasm here though).
Hope B's not going soft on us though.
