Travel in the United States: New Orleans, a City Steeped in Music and Soul

The city of New Orleans is mythical in stature. Anyone who has spent time within the confines of the Crescent City or maybe more appropriately, The Big Easy, knows that this city has a pulse all of its own and that pulse is steeped in the tss ti ti tss of jazz. One could roam the streets, not only of the French Quarter or Frenchman Street itself, but the city in its entirety and let your ears lead you on adventures of sounds, sights smells and tastes. Although massive crowds descend upon New Orleans for Mardi Gras or Jazz Fest, the city’s pulse remains the same throughout the year. Brass notes and guitar riffs drift out of doorways, the smell of po-boys and fresh seafood swirl on the gentle breeze, French, Spanish and Haitian architecture create a dazzling display of colorful and vibrant streets. Roll that all up and the base of N’awlins comes into view. Add in trips to some of the city’s must experience stops like Jackson Square and the St. Louis Cathedral, beignets and coffee at Cafe Du Monde, strolling through the French Quarter, catching some live music on Frenchman Street, walking through the giant oaks covered in Spanish moss at City Park and you get some spice added to that base.

2023 High West Oyster Fest at the Velvet Elk Lounge in Boulder, Colorado

The High West Oyster Fest has been around in some form since 1998, when Big Red F Restaurant Group and Jax Fish House founder Dave Query started an oyster eating competition. Now is has evolved into a charity event that includes not only an oyster eating competition, but a shucking competition, an all-you-can-eat extravaganza and an all around great time. Shuckers were required to present 12 opened bivalves, with points awarded for speed, presentation and quality (contestants were docked for mangled meat and shell fragments). Oyster eaters attempted to down as many of the slippery suckers as possible in 90 seconds; past winners have averaged more than one per second and first place this year took down 112 oysters in that short amount of time. This year, proceeds from the event went to help the Rise Against Suicide foundation which helps provide mental health services to at-risk teenagers. All in all, 5,500 or so oysters were shucked and consumed during the four hour event at the Velvet Elk Lounge in Boulder.
