Dining at Frankie & Johnny's Uptown

Recently I joined my siblings at Frankie and Johnny’s. It’s a popular neighborhood bar and restaurant located in Uptown New Orleans. Several of us had spaghetti and meatballs. The special, you’ll notice, was read beans and rice with hot sausage. There’s an assortment of sandwiches and platters on the menu.

Dog Day Afternoon in Audubon Park

“Dog Day Afternoon in Audubon Park” is an event put on by the Louisiana SPCA. This year’s event was held on Sunday, April 6, 2008. It was a beautiful day to be in the park. Here are some photos of the booths along the path near the start of the Walkathon.

Willi & Otto After the Walkathon

Even though Willi and Otto go walking had walked in Audubon Park before, they didn’t make it too far in the Walkathon. Here they are resting up afterwards. They were ready to go home.

The Walkathon

After some waiting, participants were asked to proceed to the starting area, with their dogs, for the Walkathon. Here are photos at the start and the path to the start.

Audubon Park Lagoon

Here are some shots of the lagoon in behind the stage where Fleur de Lis was playing. The water was covered in algae.

The band, Fleur de Lis, performed on stage as dog owners and their dogs waited for the Walkathon to begin.

Food & Drink

Participants had an assortment of food and drink items to choose from at “Dog Day Afternoon.” They could eat and listen to music performed by Fleur de Lis.
