Jackson

Ivan and I checked out of the hotel on March 19, 2010.  We put our backpacks into the car.

We walked to Antoine’s for lunch.  Ivan noticed the day before that they had a cheap set menu for lunch.  The set menu is $20.01 for a three course meal and also 25ยข martinis.  Ivan ordered a pepper martini and I ordered vanilla.  Ivan and I ordered two set menus.  We decided on a tasty butternut squash and shrimp soup.  We also got a plain fried crayfish salad.  The waiter gave Ivan a cosmo martini instead.  Ivan told him of the mistake and he brought a pepper martini.  I really liked the vanilla martini.  The cosmo one was good as well.  The pepper one was too weird for me – it actually tasted like pepper.

Our main courses came out next.  We got chicken with mushrooms and peas which was alright.  The trout dish was really boring.  We got two desserts: a chocolate mousse and a raisin and cinnamon bread pudding.  We really loved the bread pudding.  Ivan didn’t really fancy the chocolate mousse though.  I thought it was pretty good.

We walked back to the car.  Ivan started driving to Mississippi at 1:30 pm.  We would be staying in Jackson for a few days.  We arrived in Jackson at 6:30 pm.  We drove to Carl’s place.  He’s a couchsurfer that we’d be staying with for 2 nights.  We met Renaud, a couchsurfer from France at Carl’s apartment.  We also met Whitley who is Carl’s roommate.

Carl is a reporter on the radio.  He’s a friendly guy who’s very energetic.  He really loves music especially funk.

Carl cooked us a nice spaghetti dinner.  Ivan made the salad. 

We met Whitley’s boyfriend KJ.  He looks like Malcolm Macdonald when he played Alex in A Clockwork Orange.  He doesn’t look creepy though.

We went out.  Carl drove Ivan, Renaud and I to Hal and Mal’s.  We saw a great band there called Passsenger Jones.

Carl sang some karaoke.  He can really sing.

Next, we went to F. Jones Corner around midnight.  There was some people in the club.  It’s a blues club.  Ivan and I danced some.  It started getting really busy around 2 am. 

It was nice to hear some good music.

Carl started playing the bongos along with the band.  There was a black lady named Jackie Bell singing later on.  She has an awesome voice.  Carl played the drums on one song while she was singing. 

We left the bar at 4 am.  It was a good night.
