Placea was empty. Staff person didn’t seem super interested. The good part of Happys is it has a descent selection of beer on tap.

On Poydras on the way to the Superdome ( east side of street ). Stopped here before a Saints' game. Large drafts were $11 ( not cheap ) . No food available. Lots of TVs.
