post its at the camellia grill

we went to new orleans this afternoon to bring my niece. kate, to stay with a friend overnight before she heads back to california and stopped at the camellia grill on the way in to view the post it notes covering the front doors adn windows, begging for it to re-open. it's an old new orleans diner that has not re-opened since the storm, much to the regret of LOTS of people, me included. some of the notes were poignant. some funny. my favorite was **cheeseburger, cheeseburger, cheeseburger*, signed belushi. the post its were once brightly colored. now they're faded and dull.
i just can't imagine new orleans without it. i still remember when it was abtou the only place you could eat at night uptown. it was The place to go to get a late night meal after a night out,
and is sadly missed.
