TBWCYL Day 292 - Hey Bartender!

Today would have been a fun task if I could have gotten to New Orleans but my job stopped me from being there. You see, I was to take The Book to the closest bar that had been listed in The Book and demand a free drink. It seems that The Book deemed about 8 bars as hangouts and today I was supposed to go there to see if anyone else showed up.

I map quested it to see the distance and it is 542 miles from Molly's at the Market to my house. That is the closest hangout from my home in Dallas. I went to their website to check and make sure they had survived Hurricane Katrina and apparently not only did they survive it, they also stayed open after the devastation and even held their annual parade. How cool is that?

I will go to Molly's some day, maybe on vacation I can stop by. The atmosphere seems pretty cool and I have never been to New Orleans so I now have another reason to go.

That is all,

Newt

We went before Katrina (stayed pretty much in the French Quarter though) and it was lovely. If you do make it there, be sure to take a camera because it's very beautiful. Less beautiful at night when the streets are covered in passed-out drunks and a slick of vomit & beads.

New Orleans is one of those stand-out cities that you simple have to visit. It just transports you out of America because the architecture, feel, and music is just so European. What were some of the other bars/hangouts listed?

You know you're my hero right?

In truth, I'd love to do a modern-day Bellocian pub tour. The irony? Well I've just moved away from Belloc's county. Damn.
