This place is full of historical trivia and shops. Street is closed off so easy to walk both sides of the street. We ate at Blues City Cafe. It was reasonably priced and very good.

Same atmosphere as Bourbon St in New Orleans but with blues music. You can drink in the street. Everyone is carded so bring your ID. Girls in picture has a 100 ounce drink that was $32. Parking is in paid lots
