Aw Sue, don't take the fun out of it. Did you check out the door girl
carefully? Lots of places to hide the hardware. Besides, the cachet was in
line with tourist expectations.

Why are you walking in the streets. Afraid to walk close to those dark
buildings and side alleys at night? :-) VBG

As Sue's post suggests, if you haven't been to the Palm Court, you haven't
been to New Orleans. About time they got some publicity.

In New Orleans, go to the Palm Cafe in the 1200 block of Decatur
Street,where George Buck and his wife hold court. Authentic Trad Jazz, great
records for sale and George knows as much about the music as anybody alive
today. Plus there is a certain cachet. The doorman usually wears a gun and
you might want to take a cab there at night, and or travel in a group.
It is also a restaurant so go early and have dinner. They serve good food at
a REASONABLE PRICE. Check for hours, I think they are dark Mon & Tue.
