"One of my favorites is Ye Old College Inn," says Brees of this upscale American pub, a neighborhood staple since the end of Prohibition. "It has a 'Cheers' feel to it," he says. "I've seen Harry Connick Sr. there a number of times." Like many other Crescent City classics, Hurricane Katrina pummeled this city landmark on August 29, 2005. "It was completely destroyed," says Brees, "but the owners tore it down, turned that space into a parking lot, and rebuilt it next door with a small bowling alley, Rock 'n' Bowl, behind it." So what's his perfect night on South Carrollton Avenue? "Rock 'n' Bowl has a little bar with a stage and live music every night," says Brees. "So, I go bowl, listen to the music, have some drinks, and then go eat at Ye Old College Inn."
