New Orleans - Now For the Pièce de résistance

Yes, I've fallen for New Orleans. (most visitors do so) - For all the reasons and more that the following 7 days of entries will show.
But THIS has to be the single-best example of what makes this city unlike any other in the world:
Funk 'N Blues band
a danged good funknblues band
in a bowling alley
on a Tuesday night!
And the scene is at least this good
all over town
EVERY Night.

If you're planning a long weekend in New Orleans, when you arrive (especially if on Thursday), make your way to John Blancher's Rock 'n' Bowl. Do whatever you have to do to get there. It'll start your visit off right. Thank you John for the warm welcome and thank you Ernie Vincent and your Top Notes for one of the best nights of my visit.

Now, give it up for Ernie, Eric, Josh, Phillip, and James...
