We saw it on a walk with Mariano but didn't make it inside. We saw brass band funk music one night and a rock band at a dive bar another night. Great trip, though! Got to spend time with Mariano and clarke and had a larger WFMU-listener gathering the first night.

Lush subtropical flora and venerable live oaks draped with wild muscadine and swags of barbe espagnole, or Spanish moss, cover this geological oddity, which is one of five "islands" rising above south Louisiana’s flat coastal marshes.

The island occupies roughly 2,200 acres and sits atop a deposit of solid rock salt thought to be deeper than Mount Everest is high. Geologists believe this deposit is the remnant of a buried ancient seabed, pushed to the surface by the sheer weight of surrounding alluvial sediments.

cool, Mr.Charles!

You know, I have a vague recollection of talking about doberge cakes with you a couple of years back because it's based on the Hungarian dobos torte. The doberge cake was made popular in New Orleans by Gambino's bakery, but it was a Hungarian woman who worked there who created it. en.wikipedia.org...
