Mellow Yellow Monday - New Orleans Drive In Daiquari Bar - October 25, 2010
When I arrived in New Orleans forty-eight years ago to start nursing school at Charity
Hospital, the legal drinking age was eighteen. We, however, did not have any
drive through daiquairi bars. They still did not exist when I moved away in 1969. At
some point in time, in recent years, I noticed several when I visited. I'm not sure they
are such a good idea, though, since they don't seem to discourage drinking and
When I was there last week for my nursing school reunion and my friend was driving,
we stopped so I could get my first ever "drive through daiquiri" and some photographs.
I can't say the quality of the drink was superior. Give me a Sazerac at one of the great
bars in New Orleans...none of this drive through stuff for me!!
You can't miss this sign!
It beats drive by banking, I guess!
$5.00 off gallons on Sundays!!
I'm participating in Mellow Yellow Monday.
