New Orleans 2009

The American Society of Anesthesiologists annual convention was in New Orleans last year in October. A bunch of us from NYU went together. We really enjoyed the trade fair, where we got to see all sorts of new and fancy anesthesia equipment. It felt nerdy, but it was a lot of fun. Abbott Laboratories had a giant inflatable sevoflurane bottle.

It took me a while to convince my friends to take a picture with me.

We had some good eating in New Orleans. We ate at Cochon, which features Cajun cuisine.

Everything we ordered was delicious. I tried alligator for the first time (Jason O. is right - tastes like chicken). The BBQ oysters were really good, too.

We also went to August, a fancier restaurant. Here are a bunch of us fancypants.

The restaurant seemed like it was in a building that used to be a house. Our table was in a room that looked like someone's old library. It was nice. Fleurise loved the ambiance.

I had to order the foie gras done three ways.

There were seven of us. In addition to the good food, August graciously agreed to split the bill for us seven ways. Incredible!
