That's Gambit intern Bryan Davis, volunteering today at the New Orleans Po-Boy Preservation Festival (but obviously Bryan was not too busy to eat). It was a great day to be on Oak Street, eating Vaucresson's hot sausage and roast beef and banh mi and just about anything that could be dressed between two pieces of French bread. (But crowded...the fest is only in its 2nd year and an hour into it Oak Street was impassable; they're going to have to rethink logistics for 2009. Still, it was a great time and, as we put in New Orleans, a "new tradition.")

A few more shots below the cut:

David Batiste and his family band, the Gladiators, who had the crowds dancing in the intersection at Oak and Leonidas.

And then there was this lady, who never moved from her window in two hours...
