... eaten this US chain before and recommended the food, so we went in.
This proved to be a very good choice. Our strawberry cocktails were delicious, and the 'bourbonzola' beef burger I had (bourbon sauce, gorgonzola and onion rings) was one of if not equal to the best burger I have ever had.
We headed to Howl at the Moon at about 9:30 and proceeded to enjoy the amazing music of a four piece band that continually changed instruments, with everyone taking turns to ...

Nicole cannot find her rail tickets - we search the entire metro ride over - nope - panic sets in.

We empty her bag and find the tickets - crisis averted. Train to Memphis here we ...
