Fritzel’s German Jazz Club
New Orleans. Oil on canvas.
We arrived in New Orleans for a conference. Well, Liz attended the conference, I attended the various bars along Rue Bourbon.
One of the first we checked out, after checking into our hotel room at the local Marriott, was Fritzel’s German Jazz Club.
The place was empty except for a few walk in customers picking up package goods. The bartender was a gay Inuit adopted by Scottish parents. He was a professor at Tulane University, until he decided to hang up his PhD and tend bar. Less stress, he said.
