JazzFest (and my 2nd wedding anniversary) ROCKED totally.

And even though I had Hurricanes and beignets for breakfast, I still came back two pounds lighter than I went because of all the (ahem) walking (ahem) we did for exercise!

I think there should be a PM gathering in New Orleans where we bond over liquor, lifting and Cajun food. I've got tons of airline miles and I'm dying to use 'em!

I am in!

Hurricanes are definitely not Paleo but when in Rome. For some reason I remember that rum and diet coke is low carb drink?

I have a lot of clients in New Orleans and travel there often. You can eat yourself silly in that town.

I spoke at a conference at a Ritz last Sunday and Monday and took my wife. Funny thing we both came back lighter than when we left. It must be the (ahem) hotel walking. :D

I was thinking DC for a first PM schwa-re...New Orleans might beat that before we even make it to the strip clubs! I'm in.

Here's another vote for DC area. Just make sure it's between september and mid may.

DC works for me. So does New Orleans, Pheonix, LA or Vegas. My only wish is that it is a non stop flight, the lifting is sweet and the drinks are cold.

I will be starting a new thread shortly about my PM Pilmigrage. I hope to have details worked out by the end of the week.

Oh... DC is alright but there's a 10% sales tax on food, you've got tour busses taking up all the parking, and if you come here during the summer you'll have groups of similarly-dressed busses masquerading as "healthy" Americans standing cluelessly in front of buildings going "It's all the (Democrats/Republicans) fault!"

08 looms... stay away.

Oh wait- I live here so it's not all bad.

LOL. Also, every time I go to DC I somehow manage to get lost on "M" street.

From you to DC...not sure about the non stop flight stuff....but the PM crew will guarantee the thing about the lifting. I or Jamila will be in charge of the cold drinks.
