The Scoop NOLA: Chiba

New Orleans, like most cities, has an abundance of sushi bar options. I can think of three places off the top of my head that are walking distance from each other.

The Scoop NOLA: District Donuts.Sliders.Brew

Every morning before I can get out of bed, I have to check each social media network I subject myself to. Yes, I set my alarm 15 extra minutes to ensure this is possible. The day I decided to follow District Donuts on instagram, was the day I began waking up to the most unreal, mouthwatering photos of the gargantuan sized donuts they create. I have to apologize to my friends for the amount of screen shots they receive every weekend...
