Our last two days in New Orleans were all about the Tulane University ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Corps) 20 year class reunion.
To get to the University, we traveled by street car. NOLA has a pretty nice street car (not "trolley" I was told) system that was cheap and easy to use. Clang, clang, clang ...
Ding, ding, ding...
There was a short alumni association meeting and then social hour, where I got to meet all of Drew's buddies and most of their spouses. I won't name any names here, for privacy sake, but suffice it to say each one of the classmates was a quality individual plus lot of fun to hang around.
Then, of course, we had to eat.
To relive old times, the gang headed to Cooter Brown's again to close out the evening.
Cooter Brown's seemed like typical college bar except on two accounts. 1) they had a Huge selection of beer, including Drew's all time favorite Rouge Brewery Chocolate Stout, which we have never found in a pub (or very seldom a liquor store for that matter) outside of Oregon, and 2) these cool carved wooden celebrity caricatures around the room.
We had to retire relatively early, because, let's face it, we're not in college anymore. Plus we needed to save some steam for the next day's tailgate party.
