Charlotte, North Carolina

As for the entertainment, the bands were called 'All That' and 'Egg Yolk Jubilee'.
'All That' was a large band of ten people which included a full brass section (trumpet, sax, clarinet, etc.). They played a combination of their own songs and all types of other music (pop, rap, hip-hop). We didn't stick around for the second band.
The Mermaid Lounge is about five minutes ride ($6) from the French Quarter. Takes about 10-15 minutes for a cab to come so plan accordingly. The bartender called a cab.
