We wanted to walk around the French Quarter and take in many different pubs/bands. We were at Tropical Isle and decide to stop for a bit and listen to the music.
I ordered a hand grenade drink. VERY strong. To me it tasted something like mountain dew. I am guessing about 8 - 9 oz of alcohol in it.

Since we had not eaten yet, we ordered chicken wings. This was the only bad part of the pub. The wings were probably the worst I have ever had.

While we were there a band called "The Hangovers" was playing. They played old rock' n roll music. We really enjoyed them.They said they take requests so I yelled out Mustang Sally and sure enough they played a 12 minute version of the song.

A good time.
We went up and down Bourbon street and ended back at this place. We just seem to enjoy it.

Dress Code: No real dress code.
