EP 03 – ENTRY 02: A CAR NAMED AFTER DESIRE, A STREET NAMED AFTER BOURBON
I have an exciting announcement to make: The Streetcars are back! Temporarily shut down after the storm, now we hear them every night, that sweet sound of old wood rollin’ down the tracks outside our apartment building on Carondelet St – just three short blocks from Bourbon. Taken from my cell, that’s me on the car at night, happy as a gator in the bayou.
And while we’re on the subject, let us take a moment to honor the famous Tennessee Williams [www.imdb.com] play-turned-film, and the famous path [www.bourbonstreetexperience.com] that stretches across the historic French Quarter, laying claim to many a drunk out-of-towner.
A journal from New Orleans would be sorely lacking without a tip of the hat to Bourbon Street and its “Huge Ass Beers”. ‘Nuff said.
