Going to NOLA soon?

If so, check out this article in the Seattle Times. It's a great reason to get off of Bourbon Street and see places a little less touristy. The best part (and how I think Seattle is missing out):

"One of the more unusual may be Checkpoint Charlie's at 501 Esplanade Ave, at Decatur, on the edge of the Quarter. It's your basic corner dump-of-a-bar but with a few unusual touches: There's live blues or rock from 8 p.m. until 4 a.m. most days, and there's no cover charge. It's also open (and serving bar food) 24 hours a day.
Also here: the ultimate neighborhood touch — there's a laundromat along the back wall."
