Behind the old Jung Hotel there was a bar known as Larry & Katz's. It was an old wooden house on piers, and I don't think it was air conditioned. You could buy a cold long neck, and sit in the window frame and socialize with friends or shoot a game of pool. Down the street was Joe's where all of the Charity Nurses hung out. I had some great times at both places, are both still open?
If you want to see an Eagle's nest, next time when you are on I-10 heading towards Baton Rouge, just past the Airport exit start looking towards the left ( towards the river )and you will see a lone tall cypress standing by itself with a bunch of sticks and twigs at it's very top. On closer examination, you will see the female's head polking out of the top, and the male perched in the next tree..
Hey Blake Pontchartrain,
GREAT stories, and I do enjoy them. Keep up the good clean stories of Old New Orleans.

I worked just off of City Park Avenue for Union Carbide " Linde ", a plant where oxygen was made. Due to Bud's Broiler's close proximity, I are there often.
Please keep up the good reading.
Great story on the " Lucky Dog ".
As a metter of fact, all of your stories are great.
Keep up the good work.
