After breakfast we ended up searching for parking (which is not easy with a festival going on) and finally ended up parking at the convention center to take a shuttle into town.
Remembered about Energy Center (a building I worked with at IPC) and stopped by to see if anyone I knew was still there but sadly Noel had taken a day off and Angie was no longer with the company.  :-(  Next time I am going to have to do a bit more research to try to get in touch with with them to meet up.  

Afterwards we stopped by a local pizzaria, split a pitcher of beer, stopped by a local hotel for directions to the trolley stop to get uptown to the end of the line.  Realizing it was near Liz's old hood we found the specific corner.  This is a beautiful area reminding me of a mix of Old Louisville and the Highlands.  We decided to walk back a ways and check out Audubon Park.  On our way we got a to go beer at Cooter Browns (which has 400 beers).  What a great way to spend the afternoon.  Eventually we decided to take the trolley back which was completely squished.  Luckily we had a bit of entertainment as John noticed a fight happening and I turned to look as the police arrived to break it up.  John got the whole thing on video.  At the end of the line we walked down bourbon street (which is a mini Vegas).  On the way we stopped by a restaurant called K-Joe's and sitting by the window we saw a wedding parade down the street.  What a neat idea!  We spent the rest of the evening at the waterfront watching Stooges Brass Band.  This was amazing and I am definitely going to try to find some of their albums to download.  The whole festival shut down around 10 and we headed back to camp.

Sat morning we took things slow and eventually ended up getting breakfast and took a walk through Audubon Park before starting to drive back to Louisville for a short stint to take care of a few things needed to get our Peace Corps passport ordered and have a quick run through on the car which seems to be losing oil somewhere.

Wednesday morning we leave for NC for a week to visit Adam, Julianne, Daley, and Ean.
