    I will be in Mobile, Alabama on business this weekend. I have only been to Alabama twice before in my life – both times in college on a team bus 25 years ago.

    Any suggestions on what to do or see? Maybe someplace to go out for some acoustic music Saturday evening?

    If you like any history, there is a battleship and (I think) and aircraft carrier from WW2 that is pretty cool to tour through. Pensacola is about 30 minutes away so the night life might be a little better there.

    I'm in Pensacola, just a few miles away. We have more gay nightlife, but the drive would prevent em from going from Mobile to P'Cola.

    There a several museums in town, and right now they are showing The Body exhibition, the controversial museum exhibit with real cadavers. VERY interesting and worth the ticket price.

    Any of the gay bars should be fun on the weekend, although Troopers usually gets the largest crowd.

    I love the Gulf Coast area. Staying there a year and a half ago with a new ex 'mother in-law' was pretty interesting. The casinos and restaurants serving local authentic Southern cuisine are the best! I recommend eating sushi while your there. The local tuna caught off the harbour in Biloxi was simply magnificent. The best I'd ever had outside of a local place in Bedford. I'm sure the fish are more or less the same in Mobile, or anywhere else off the coast ;)

    Will the body exhibit be there through Memorial Day? I always seem to be in the wrong place to see it.

    Ok - don't know my way around... but I have a driver.

    Why would the drive prevent me from going if they are so close?

    Otherwise I think its P'Cola after dinner tmrw..
