Friday Night in New Orleans
April 18. Friday.
I’m not sure how it happened, but we didn’t turn in ’til 3AM. We had dinner at a favorite uptown spot, Jacques-Imo’s, and then met the wedding posse at Mid-City Lanes Rock and Bowl. If you haven’t been here, it’s an old skool classic. The ball return is the only automated feature, and it’s an early version of that technology. Scoring is done by hand, and bowling is done with beers. The band plays alongside while the dance floor hops. Clockwork Elvis was the headliner. Yep, lead singer wearing a derby while singing Elvis covers. Quite good actually.
