Yes, The Bombay Club, that luxurious New Orleans hangout in the Prince Conti Hotel, home to good music, food, drink, and friendships. I visited it for the first time on the date above, to hear Kris Tokarski, James Evans, and Hal Smith — my premiere offering from that session can be found here.

May your happiness increase!
