    Walking (well, staggering...) through the French Quarter at 4am with a girl on each arm, dressed to the 9's, a very nice bottle of green chartreuse being passed back and forth and singing Sting's "Moon over Bourbon Street" as we made our way to Cafe Du Mond for a quick, sweet snack down by the river...
    Ah...Such wonderful memories!
