    ok I've contacted some hotels and this is what we're looking at...

    July 4th weekend is something called Essence Festival...a big weekend for downtown New Orleans...we cannot get any availability...

    however...the following weekend....which consists of July 12-14 we can get in...

    The Marriott Hotel at 555 Canal Street is where u should make reservations...

    Call Michelle at (504) 553-5533 for reservations....make sure to mention my name when calling so she gives u our rate...

    $79 per night...up to 4 per room occupancy...

    I got quoted on 10-15 rooms...but if more is needed it shouldn't be a problem...

    **Please email either me or BacktotheMac to let us know u are coming...

    hope to hear from u guys soon!!:D

    he he he...yeah I know....one thing for sure...whenever someone calls my name...I always know it's me when they stutter on the "Frank...uh....?"

    as for what we'll call each other...I'm guessing our macrumors handles will work just fine...considering I only know a few of your real names anyway...:D

    Lucky Dogs are hot dogs that are sold out of stands on Bourbon street. They are great once you have a few in you. The sausage ones are the best, and man they are friggin huge.

    I'm looking forward to meeting everyone too. Its all logistics and dropping a load of cash on the new bathroom. I'll let you know as soon as I have a better idea about what's going on.

    Well, I have PM'ed Arn and asked him to link this to the front page. Maybe he will put up a new one and kill this one, who knows. Anyway,

    Come on people. Post your info here to let us know that you are coming. We have put some work into this, and if you back out, then we are going to send me and Rower to pay you a visit.

    Just imagine, it would be like from Jay and Silent Bob strike Back..

    *knock*

    Im sure i will manage... :)

    I always have this reputation as being "stripper obsessed"

    At my last job at this advertising agency there was this big meeting we had about relating to your clients and I volunteered to act as a client...

    Big Mistake... as a few of my coworkers immediatly started pitching me "stripper-centric campaigns" and things got WAYYY out of hand.

    It was a good time nonetheless... and I'm sure new orleans will rock... and with a bunch of young men running around naked women are sure to be found easily enough.

    Good times.

    this is, along with casinos, is the fastest way to remove money from your pockets. I never really enjoyed these type of clubs all that much, I've been to my share because of numerous reasons, all because I was going along with the group. But I've never gone to one on my own.

    Besides, you wouldn't be able to post the pics on the forum, that wouldn't be any fun, now would it.....
