The matchbook looks ancient, but Pat’s is still there - and if you google the location and zoom out you can see The Courtyard.

Google’s description: Outdoor hangout with a flaming fountain, connected to the bar that invented hurricane cocktails.


Pat O'Brien's Bar is a bar located in New Orleans, Louisiana that began operation as a legal liquor establishment on December 3, 1933, at the intersection of Royal and St. Peter streets in the French Quarter. Before that, during Prohibition the bar was known as Mr. O'Brien's Club Tipperary; the password "storm's brewin'" was required to gain entrance to the establishment.

Yeah, that never got around.
