Outback Pub

Today's remote office comes with local beer and live music.

However, the singer in this pub seems to like all of the following:
  • Methamphetamine
  • Small towns
  • Bologna
  • Rock n Roll
  • Tobacco
  • Dollar General
  • Whisky
  • Pinball
  • Whores
  • His mama
  • His wife

Sandhills Curiosity Shop

Getting our kicks at a shop in which nothing is for sale. Make a contribution, and Harley may sing for you.

Sing Sing Club

The Sing Sing Club is a nice little Bourbon Street dive bar with great live blues and pricey drinks.

Nobody gets out without singing the blues or buying a drink.

Pat O'Brien's, Home of the Hurricane

The sweet fruity drink known as the Hurricane, and that I call "adult Kool-aid", is said to have originated in the 1940s at Pat O'Brien's in New Orleans. The story is that it was created as a way to sell a surplus of rum that distributors forced Mr. O'Brien to buy along with his purchases of better-selling whiskey. Today, rum-based fuity drinks are the the main attraction at O'Brien's club.

We sat in O'Brien's piano bar, sipped on fruity adult beverages, and joined in a group sing-a-long of My Ding-a-Ling. Great fun all around.

Beware that O'Brien's will charge you more than the menu price for your drinks. The extra charge is for the glass, which you get to take with you.

Fritzel's European Jazz Pub

Fritzel's European Jazz Pub on New Orlean's Bourbon Street served as a nice nightcap to a long day of touring and traveling Louisiana. A traditional jazz quartet entertained us as we sipped fruity adult beverages.
