I had to be out of my hotel room at noon, but the Young Men Olympian second-line didn’t get underway until 1 PM, so I had some time to kill, and eating lunch wasn’t really an option since I had only finished breakfast an hour before. With nothing better to do, I headed down Magazine under the Crescent City Connector and into the Uptown section, which might be the only neighborhood in America to have streets named for all nine of the Muses of Greek mythology. There I stumbled onto a cute coffee bar called, appropriately enough, the Corner Muse, and I decided to stop in and enjoy a cappuccino. I walked a couple of blocks down Magazine, shooting photos, and then realized that I needed to head over to South Liberty and Josephine, where the Young Men Olympian hall was and where the parade would begin.
