The Dish Set Challenge II: Final Day in New Orleans

For our final meal together on the dish set we made a trip to New Orleans to visit our friends Cari & Mike. We planned a stop for lunch at my favorite NOLA restaurant Satsuma Cafe. For the most part this week we have avoided getting any type of drink if we were eating out. Anyone who knows me well knows I love fruit and and love my juice, so I finally gave in and asked them to serve us in the cup. Thankfully they accepted and when the juice man was preparing our drink he yelled out "Forrest? are you sure you want your drink in this cup it looks a little difficult." We responded from across the restaurant that of course we wanted it in there and we knew how complicated it was going to be! The restaurant was packed with people, so busy that we had to wait for a table. After we got a table we both sat down on the side with a booth so we could be near each other. That opened up a chair across the table from us. The chair was soon filled with the body of a women that neither of us knew. She started talking and asking us questions about the cups and the project. She was interested and quite inquisitive. We shared our project with her and soon our meal was served. They miss understood our request a little bit and still brought Forrest's sandwich on a separate plate so we split the salad and he ate the sandwich.  It was a wonderful final meal that neither of us will soon forget. We hope you enjoyed following us on this weeks adventure. Tomorrow will be the last post of the project with a reflection and a few more images. Thanks for reading, come back soon!
