no, its not near f&m's... its kinda hidden in a neighborhood on Oak.. On the Tulane side.. Sweet, sweet, place.. Someone was murdered there while i was in school (the place is safe as can be though.. i swear).. My favorite dive bar, hands down, is BUTLERS.. That place is sweet, sweet passion.. Its right on the river and serves pabst in a bottle (i didnt even know that * & ^ % came in a bottle until i went there for the first time)..
NOLA is sweet love.. I miss it too much.
Was that the same year the kid was shot in hand?? I think so....
Butlers!!! Holy f**** sh**!! That was great!! I still have to vote Snake and Jakes....Abita purple haze.
Oh and the crime thing...the biggest mistake people make down there (and are new to New Orleans) is that crime is only in 'bad' areas, its not so just don't get blotto and wander around the city solo (yes it happens) and lock your doors (Um, stupid to say but you have no idea how many friends of mine were robbed for leaving the door unlocked) New Orleans can vary block to block. My college b.f would get so drunk he would leave his snob car open, unlocked...nobody touched a thing...one block over, one of our friends was mugged sitting on his porch in the afternoon. Crime happens everywhere.
