It was a truly wonderful experience hanging out in the Big Easy with some magic giants. Getting to see Jon Racherbaumer's lair added to the fascination that the Crescent City holds over me -- a time I won't soon forget.
A very special thanks to Jon and Gary Hughes and his wife Eva for their wonderful southern hospitality.
Also, if any you fellas are in the area, check out the Avenue Inn Bed and Breakfast (www.avenueinnbb.com
), they're right on St. Charles Ave. which is right on the trolley car line -- a direct ride to the French Quarter. Joe and his wife Bebe are great hosts and will assure a luxuriously comfortable stay.
What a city! What great people. I look forward to returning as soon as possible.
