On a slight tangent, and out of pure, morbid, interest (possibly coupled with an idea about organizing a meet-up) … how many of you Jazz fans have been to the Jazz & Heritage Festival in New Orleans?
This year is the 50th anniversary of the event, so it’s bound to be spectacular. When New Orleans celebrates anything it’s generally magnificent (I’m still finding beads from this years’ Mardi-Gras).
My fiancé (who’ll be my wife by then) and I are going. We’re both sort of the more-the-merrier types for this sort of thing. If there’s enough interest I’m sure I could see us organizing something. And even if interest is only moderate then at least making arrangements to get a group from here together.
Just be aware, if you’ve never been before … its a fantastic city, but carries the very real risk of coming back a lot fatter than you went out, with possible liver issues, and a burning desire to return.
To avoid derailing this thread … if you’re interested shoot me a private message and if appropriate I’ll create a suitable topic for discussion/organization.
