It was a pretty cool place. The best part was the interior, but unfortunately, they did not allow photography inside.
Our next stop was the KOA in New Orleans, our home for the next few days. Along the way, we passed Lake Ponchartrain, which looked like an ocean of chocolate milk. It covers an area of 630 square miles and is only an average depth of 12-14 feet. It lies directly north of New Orleans.

Wait Wait Wait (in the voice of the LA pedestrian crossings) go f*ck yourself. We make it to this place that plays live music and there isn't any.
