Y@ Speak: Floody French Quarter Fest_lowres


The weather for this year's

French Quarter Festival

wasn't always that great, but that didn't stop a bunch of fools from going out to daydrink and stand in various lines. Also this week:

The New Orleans Bingo! Show and other local folks

perform in our nation's capital, Aubrey Plaza hangs out in New Orleans (maybe her trip down here informed

her MTV Movie Awards shenanigans

?) and flood pictures!

Y@ Speak 4/8-14
