New Orleans: Jazz Fest Edition

Ah, New Orleans.  This city has so much to offer.  The local cuisine, its rich history, the unique make up of New Orleans natives and the perpetual stream of tourists.  There is something for everyone in this vibrant city that has a sound and flavor unlike anywhere else in the states.  I have been lucky to have been a frequent visitor in New Orleans over the past four years since one of my closest friends has been in graduate school at Tulane.  I discover new things I love about New Orleans with each trip, but perhaps no discovery has been quite as earth shattering as my first experience at Jazz Fest.  New Orleans may be famous for Mardi Gras, but a mere two months later comes New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Fest--a celebration of all that New Orleans has to offer.
