Somehow, I feel the city will bounce back. It's seen hard times before.
Kim drinks Captain Morgans (the regular stuff), but he's not tried the "Tattoo". What's the difference?
I agree, the hurricanes are pretty sweet, Vera. When I'm someplace like that, I pretty well stick with what I'm used to...lite beer with an occasional shot of something interesting. If I'm going to drink something stout and get down and dirty, I want to do it at home or a friends house. I'm getting to old to show my butt in public.
Besides, when in a city with a crime rate like New Orleans, at least one person in the party needs to keep their wits about them. Getting mugged can sure ruin a great weekend.
The quarter is already bouncing back. I was there christmas week into New Year's Day. My feelings ran the gamut being back...and now I'm looking forward to going again in March.
The Tattoo is spiced, but lighter in taste than most spiced rums. It was very very dark in colour. When I travel I like to try something indigenous to the area, rather like eating what the locals eat...
I never had any trouble with crime of any sort each time I visited NOLA.
