Can I stand below the huge cliff youre dropping, ignore the laws of a round-about, swing my skis carelessly through Bridge Street and tip meagerly all without scrutiny.VD: Have you ever been to the real New Orleans event? If so, whats the craziest thing you did? KT: We had South Bass Island on Lake Erie back home. Put-In-Bay is as close to Bourbon Street as Ive gotten. Boat parties replace street parties and PBRs replace Hurricanes.VD: Whats your favorite cajun food/drink? KT: A well done Crawfish broil with corn on the cob and potato halves. Throw it all down on some newspapers and give me an Old Style.
