I wish I could remember what we did during the day

Monday night we went to The House Of Blues and had some excellent gumbo while watching a live blues performance. Out at a bar on Bourbon Street after, I met a couple of local girls and got some good intel on where to find the “real” culture of New Orleans - places where the locals go. They referred me to a couple of bars outside of the French Quarter as well as a good diner for a plate of jambalaya.
We stayed on Bourbon Street that night enjoying the walk-up window bar service at the different pubs. It was so nice to freely drink in the streets in an environment where that’s legal. Berry and I stayed out later than the other guys that night to hit the strip clubs. Berry eventually lead the way since I was too inebriated to choose a direction. The first one or two places were nice and the “dancers” were attractive. When we ventured off the main drag to some back-alley club, however, the atmosphere was a little too seedy for my liking. Berry had forgotten his wallet that night, so he borrowed what cash I had and once that was gone, we walked back to the Marriott and got some sleep.
