Bars where Pete has had a drink

#2476 - Gold Mine Saloon, New Orleans - 3/21/2014

This is not a type of bar that I particularly like (the crowd was loving dancing to "Footloose" when I arrived), but if you are looking for basically a crowded frat party, this would be a good option for you.  You will wait for what seems like an eternity for each drink and the focus is on shots and candy-flavor cocktails (it is known for, and apparently proud of, the invention of the Flaming Doctor Pepper).

Granted, before going I could have read the thrillist article that notes "The word “douchebag” gets thrown around a lot when people talk about this place ..."  Then again, they once had a poetry reading series on Thursday nights.
