The film takes place during Super Bowl weekend. The teams competeing are the Miami Theshers and the Chicago Rhinos.







I believe this is the oldest bar in America. At night it is lit only by candle light.





Thank you for viewing my photos.
Very cool on the movie sneak preview.

What's not to like? A fruity frozen slushy drink that makes you want to take your clothes off in cold weather?

We actually liked the Resurrection better than the hand grenade. The Resurrection is sold at Spririts on Bourbon. It was featured on Bar Resue. The owner was part owner of Tropical Isle and got bought out. He then opened a bar on Bourbon and was selling drinks very similar to the hand grenade. John Taffer came in, and re-made the bar and named it Spirits on Bourbon. I love the cup/mug that the Resurrection comes in. It looks like a skull with a handle and the eyes light up.

Guess you've given me another reason to go back.

yes! (but I doubt that you needed a reason to go back)

I will have to look for that. I won't have much play time, but I will make the best of what I have.

I don't know enough about New Orleans to answer that. I"m not sure if the Central Grocery in the French Quarter sells it. My Jambalya at the Crazy Lobster contained it and was very good.

Now you have me wanting some Jambalaya. I think I will go get a box of Zatarain's, some chicken and some Johnsonville Andouille and stir up a pot for dinner. Pam brought home a package of the Johnsonville last month, and while I know it's probably nothing like the good fresh stuff, I though it tasted pretty good.

Yes you should. They also have a barber type chair at the entrance, you can sit in it and I believe they might give you a shot of something and spin you around... I don't remember what they do in the chair. No one in my group wanted to sit in it, so we just got our drinks and kept walking around.
