I Will Not Defame New Orleans.

Lounge Lizards, R.I.P.

First The Hideout. Then Shim Sham. And now, Lizards. Why do the good bars close?

Chalk it up to another Katrina victim, I suppose, but tonight (Friday) is closing night for the great locals' hangout bar/mini-club, Lounge Lizards, 200 Decatur @ Iberville.

I imagine I'll be guest bartending, since I opened the club three years ago, and also closed Leila's other bar, Ye Olde Hideoute.

God damn it. I want my city back.
