Sunburnt and hungover before 6pm Eastern Time Sunday. That counts as an absolute personal best. All that despite showing up in a State with Blue Laws. Luckily, you can still get Patron Silver and margaritas from local restaurants. Had lunch with Sprout and Owed Many Beers. Owed Many Beers had planned on stopping for lunch only, but even his iron willpower was no match for shots of Patron at Bubba Garcia's. But lunch can last for four hours on Island City, we made it that way for a reason.
(That's right, after working in a Mexican-themed restaurant on Magazine Street in New Orleans, the first place I go out on Island City is, you guessed it, a Mexican-themed restaurant. We like to call that diversity.)
And it was only after that that I went to a party down in the Village. Two very good friends are leaving the tropical climes for Ohio, and everyone turned out to see them off. Most of my time there was spent re-hydrating, remembering the old Island City days (there were three people at said party that I have known since Kindergarten, and several I have known for over a decade) and talking about New Orleans. The nearly consensus decision was that I need to buy a house in NOLA as soon as possible and keep a guest bedroom open for visitors.
Today has been cloudy, so I've been sitting on the Mom and Pop's front porch, drinking coffee and reading books. Beach and golf blogging tomorrow.
Perhaps I will find LiberalandProud or CoastalCompanion for drinks later on.
