Zydeco Day 8 – Lafayette to New Orleans via Vacherie

Today we had a very nice breakfast near the Hotel at T-Coons restaurant. Afterwards we loaded up the cars and headed to Vacherie where we had a wonderful lunch at DJ’s Grille. Afterwards we dropped by the Goodwill Plantation where JoAnn grew up. Some of us enjoyed the shade on the porch and some walked to the levee by the Mississippi River. Then we headed to New Orleans to the St. Pierre Hotel near Bourbon Street in the French Quarter. We have an enclosed courtyard adjacent to some of the rooms which is very nice for visiting and happy hour. We walked to the Bon Ton restaurant for dinner – again excellent. After dinner some of us wanted to see the end of the March Madness final game so some of us went to a nearby sports bar and others went to the Royal Orleans Hotel for a drink and to watch the end of the game. Big V won over UNC with a last second jump shot!
