  1. So much fun! I am pretty hammered right now, but got to play 3 songs with Willie Lockett and the Blues Krewe at the Funky Pirate on Bourbon St. Rough start (I was pretty drunk already from dinner) but pulled it together and did damned well, if I do say so myself!

  2. My wife posted video to Facebook but of course I can't share it b/c FB sucks.

    I did that in Florida once (got hammered and sat in with the band). Funny thing is they called me the next day and offered me a gig. (I have no idea when I gave them my number.) What's really hilarious is that I watched the video my wife made right before they called and cringed at how bad it was.

  7. I wouldn't drink that! Sazerac, Vieux Carre, some delicious Canadian maple-bourbon liquer, and split a bottle of Pinot Noir over dinner with my wife. Then a beer and vodka and tonic at the Funky Pirate. I was as drunk as I ever get last night!
     
  8. Last night, Christmas night, around 8:30.

    Well, aside from the vomit, urine, and feces, it's smells like a fruity hurricane drink!
