WWII Museum - New Orleans Trip!

So Dave and I went to New Orleans this month to celebrate the opening of three new additions to the World War 2 Museum - The stage door canteen (features a USO show); American Sector - John Besh Restaurant - chef John Besh has several restaurants in New Orleans and has been on Iron Chef and The Next Food Network Star; and Victory Theater - which shows a 4D movie produced by Tom Hanks called Beyond the Boundaries. We attended the Black Tie affair at the Museum which gave us a first peek at all the fabulous additions! Tom Hanks and Tom Brokaw were present all weekend long. Brokaw was the MC and Hanks was the constant fun comic relief lol. He roasted Dave's dad who is the President/CEO of the museum and it really hit home at how much Dave's Dad, Nick, has done with his career. It's quite amazing and I kept saying to Dave -
"That's your Dad up there!!" when he would come to the podium to speak in front of hundreds of people. We got to meet both Hanks and Drew Brees at the Black Tie event and I've posted those fun pictures for you to see! OH and I did get a fabulous black dress from a Vera Wang tag sale in NYC..... original price:$450, sale price: $50!!!!
