The week’s only half over and damn — this neighborhood’s been more unpredictable than a 16-year-old boy with car keys and a bottle of Jim Beam. Lessee….
Stu and I ran into Mayor C. Ray “Whereyabeen?” Nagin last night at Liuzza’s in Mid-City. He was sitting alone at the bar. Seriously. Someone behind the bar took a pic of him and some Liuzza’s guy — but most folks just left him alone. Not sure what he was driinking, but when I talked to him he was getting whatever it was in a go-cup. I didn’t discuss politics or go all Ralph Nader on him. I just wished him good luck and invited him to lunch at my place. Whatever anyone says about the guy, I gotta give him props for just being out in public like that during his off-hours. Very approachable. Lord knows he’s got every reason to hide when he’s got a choice.
Oh — and we had our first Trash Can incident….
