Where Eli and Payton Manning Like to Eat in New Orleans
ESQUIRE: Who has the higher Wonderlic score?
ELI MANNING: I killed him.
PEYTON MANNING: But I tutored him, like the SAT.
ESQ: In a pickup basketball game, who gets picked first?
EM: I would get picked first.
PM: Yeah, Eli first.
ESQ: Eli, if I’m in your hometown of New Orleans and I have three hours, what should I do?
EM [to others]: Right. Zzt. How you doing?
PM: Want me to go? You go to Domilise’s for a shrimp po’ boy. Go walk the Quarter, and at the end of the night, I’d go to Camellia Grill and get a cheeseburger. I guarantee Eli will say at least one of those things.
EM: Gkt, gkt … Okay. I’m back. You’d go to Domilise’s, grab some oysters or a fried-shrimp po’ boy.
PM [softly]: Yep.
EM: After the food, it’s just a matter of, you know, walking around the Quarter.
PM [softly]: Knew it. Ask him about the burger.
ESQ: What about a burger?
EM: By then you’d end up at Camellia Grill to get late-night food.
PM [softly]: I knew it.
Their representative taps his watch.
ESQ: All right, that’s it then. Appreciate your time.
EM: Oh, it’s no problem.
PM: Travel safe, E.
EM: All right, bro.
