wt...depends on what you want! You can walk Bourbon 1/2 the night and it's hopping EVERYWHERE!

www.offbeat.com Great site to check out who's playing and where. On bourbon St some of my favorite spots are the Tropical Isle, 4 locations, Funky Pirate, Krazy Korner. In the Marigny DBA, Spotted Cat, Apple Barrel. Howl at the Moon dueling piano bar also fun. Younger set likes Razoos, Beach Club, Bourbon Blues Co, Bourbon Cowboy.

If you like Dixieland type jazz, Maison Bourbon is my favorite. Fritzel's is also very good. They are both on Bourbon, not far from each other.

"Hopping" areas within and within walking distance of the French Quarrter, in addition to Bourbon St., include lower Decatur St. (across from the French Market and close to Esplanade Ave.), and Frenchmen St. (between Decatur St. and Royal St.). However, there are also other particular spots within the French Quarter; check the various music and event listings.

My picks: friday night, Paul Sanchez at Chickie Wah Wah (Canal St, easy streetcar ride) or Kermit Ruffins at the Blue Nile (Frenchmen St)

Saturday night: John Boutte at dba (Frenchmen St), Beatin Path at Carrolton Station (Uptown),

Funky Pirate, 727 Bourbon for Blues

Sadly for you, my favorite New Orleans Bluesman, Mark Penton is not there this weekend. As we speak he is winging his way to Kansas City, yeah!

Anyone in the area who would like to hear him on June 4, I am the info!

DO try to see John Boutte! He is wonderful, and dba was one of my favorite venues.

If you do, get there EARLY and get up front, as he sings rather quietly and the crowd tends to get loud in the back, making it difficult to hear him.

Kermit Ruffins was a blast, as well. And though i never saw Paul Sanchez, I know he writes for/with John Boutte and Kermit, so he's gotta be great.

John is great and I'd add him to the list, but then again, so is Paul and Kermit and Mark and.....the list goes on and on. Now I know one of the many reasons why I need to LIVE in New Orleans.

Go to the Davenport Lounge on the 4th floor of the Ritz Carlton on Thursday/Friday/Saturday and listen to Jeremy Davenport's oustanding jazz. He's on at 9 PM on Friday/Saturday but earlier on Thursday. Good luck.
