Dragon's Den reopens in New Orleans
The Dragon's Den Social Aid and Pleasure Club finally reopened last night! NOLA just got 4.328 percent better. This fact computed using complex scientific formulae.
I really went to see Zydepunks, but I get sleepy, so I had to leave after the "Why are we building such a big ship?" accordian and brass band set. God I love this place. I am 69.469 percent happier today than I was yesterday.
Also, Zotz reopened in the Marigny, but they moved downstairs from Dragon's Den. This also increases the goodness of NOLA, by 3.672%. Their new bathroom is not as cool as their old bathroom, but otherwise bravo, kids.
