Welcome back to the Weekly Sip, y’all. It’s been a few weeks but I’m back with a fresh mind and lots of sips of new wisdom to share. Well, maybe “wisdom” is a stretch. But I’ve got things to say this week, so let’s get to it.
Anyway, I’m doing things a bit differently this week, because it’s good to mix it up sometimes. On this week’s Weekly Sip, I’m talking about a new adventure.
A couple weekends ago, I traveled to New Orleans with some friends from the Chattanooga FC supporter group. I’d never been to New Orleans, and I’d never traveled for a soccer match, let alone a match for a semiprofessional, 4th-division club. A group of 10 had gotten an AirBnB about 15 minutes from the French Quarter, and someone mentioned they had a spot open up. I gave it some brief thought, and within 20 minutes I was planning a weekend trip to the Big Easy.
