Livin’ large with little luxuries: because I’m worth it. You?

Yesterday, when it was a sweltering 90 degrees in New Orleans (with the humidity it felt like 109), I had the great good fortune to cool off with one of life’s little luxuries:

Chilling in the French Quarter with oysters and a cold beer.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, I’m offering up a very personal list of edible extravagances in today’s Ticket roundup: eats and drinks that don’t cost a lot, but do give me a thrill. Like these fontina fonduta frites at Quinn’s Pub:

Like French fries with Cheez-Whiz, only 1000 times better.

Who needs imported beluga caviar on a fussy blini when you could have a slice of good old-fashioned caviar pie.

Another sliver of caviar pie at the Steelhead Diner? Thought you’d never ask!

And I can kick myself for forgetting to put these in my roundup:

Fried pickles at Feirerabend. Don’t knock ’em till you’ve tried ’em, alright?

Now, do tell: What inexpensive little “luxuries” do you like to treat yourself to?
