Back in the city, no time for the nap we so longed for after our previous boozy night. It was a quick clean up and straight on to Snug Harbor for an evening of dinner and jazz. Located just outside the French Quarter around Frenchman Street, supposedly this is what Bourbon Street used to be like 20 years ago, Snug Harbor was one of many lively venues here. We finally got to try gumbo, generally just a mixture of soup, of course accompanied with champagne. The live show that evening was with legendary jazz saxophonist Sonny Fortune, accompanied by his trio playing piano, bass and drums. Following an engaging performance, we strolled back through the city, where outside we found the streets had come to life. Swarms of people spilled from bars into the streets where on corners bands had congregated for jamming sessions, surrounded by their very own parties.
