[Dixielandjazz] New Orleans vacation

Is anything really free?  In my several trips to N'Orleans I found the
"free" things to be really neat and a lot of fun but as every human knows
there are calls to nature.  Now the N'Orleans police are really good at
keeping people from doing it on the street and modesty declares a certain
decorum if you don't believe it watch Cops.  The choice then becomes how to
find a place.  The pubs won't let you use the facilities unless you are a
customer so you get to drop $5 on a drink which takes us back to the
original problem that brought us into the bar anyway.  It seems to be a
never ending circle.  There is no free lunch!

> I agree with Rebecca -- French Quarter Festival is really the best chance
to hear all sorts of local music, and it really is all free.  However, the
festival relies heavily on sales of merchandise, so please buy t-shirts!
> Running concurrently with the festival on Friday and Saturday is a New
Orleans Music Colloquium, which is held at the Old U.s. Mint (and is also
free).  The theme this year is "New Orleans in the 1920s" and will feature
papers on the Tango Belt and Lakefront, New Orleans Recordings in the 1920s,
Blues Singers, Mechanical Instruments, a demonstration of Ragtime and early
Jazz social dance, and Keith Brunies will talk about his famous family and
display instruments belonging to George, Merritt, and Henry.  If anyone is
interested in the complete schedule, please contact me off list.
> This year, the Nickel a Dance ran all through October AND November, giving
us even more great bands to hear.  Too bad they can't have something like
that all year.
