Hands down, the best $25 I've ever spent: AARP's Life@50+ National Event.

Greetings from New Orleans. I've just spent the evening strolling around the French Quarter, which for those of you who have never been is something of a cross between Downtown Disney and the Innermost Circle of Hell.But most importantly, this afternoon I was at the Louisiana Theatre at the New Orleans Convention Center watching the final preparations for our Movies for Grownups Film Festival. It's all part of AARP's Life@50+ Member Event, which is drawing tens of thousands of folks from all over the country.
