... narrow with the bar down one side. The doorman said a two drink minimum which was fine because we were definitely going to be staying. Something Jock noticed was that the longer you stay in Bourbon street, the more expensive the drinks get. They start out around $7 but can go as high as $12 or $15 after tips.

... the shops and buildings. We had lunch at Franks "The best Muffuletta in town". Shelley and I ate there about 20 years ago. Still the best. That night there was a major storm and lots of rain. Some of the streets we walked on that day were now flooded. The local weather man was over enthusiastic about the conditions!!! We thought we all going to drown.
