Sounds Fun!!!
I live here in the QC's! You will have a ball down there.. especially if you like to drinkie poo! That place is a ball.. the later the better.. he he he!

FYI! The District is where the Jumers Casino Rock Island is located.. so.. if you want to get a free ride on down there.. Have the Casino shuttle pick you up at the hotel and drop you off.. as long as you kinda look as if you are gonna gamble.. your there for free! Walk across the street about 1 1/2 blocks and your in the middle of the action! There are many bars down there.. but.. nothing compares to the delicious drinks available at the daquiri factory.. they have a ton of icy refreshing drinks.. and are about 6 or 7 bucks each.. 2 and I am done... boy are they strong.. the one call "hard screw" whew! But I bet they will be having a special on Huricanes... yum!

This is really a fun place for the night.

Let me know if you have any other questions! Like I said.. I have lived here my whole life and I can't wait to meet ya all! I will try to be at the OLS meeting! I just need to get the exact time and place!~ I love this place! See you at the CONVENTION!

I'm along with you'all if it's OK. I read up on Gumbo Ya Ya a while ago and thought it would be great to 'attend'. Looks like it's my kind of party.
