Hanging Out

That's ZOT'S, one of my all time favourite hangouts. It's a 24hr coffee shop/ internet cafe/ laundromat in The Marigny (the neighbourhood right next to the French Quarter here in New Orleans). A lot of great people work there like Ian the so-hot-it's-tragic gay-guy with ever-changing hairdos (at the moment it's a blonde mohawk... not to attractive, but his face makes up for it), Melissa, whose appearance is unremarkable except for her shaved head and who gives the best hugs ever, and Cameron, who doesn't work there anymore but was hands down the most beautiful human being I have ever seen.

The best thing about ZOT's is the bathroom. It's pretty normal - a toilet, a sink, a bathtub, but it has a few things about it that make me smile. Firstly, there are huge paintings of dinosaur fossils on the walls. I like peeing near dinosaurs. Secondly, there are gold fish in the tub. Big gold fish and plants and every once in a while you get lucky and there's a frog.

If you ever come to New Orleans, make sure to go to ZOT's. It's the best place to hang out.


p.s. I have no idea why I'm babbling about this. But still, ZOTs rocks, and they make a great Yerba Matte.
