NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Friday lunches can get a bit rowdy at
Galatoire's, the stately French Quarter restaurant that has been
serving up French Creole cuisine for more than 100 years.
A New Orleans tradition for the city's blue bloods, politicians
and powerbrokers, this Friday's lunch dished up a new thrill - a
gunshot in the main dining room.
A handgun fell out of a woman's purse, discharging accidentally
when it hit the restaurant's floor, according to a news release
The bullet hit a wall. No one was injured.
Police went to the restaurant, but no charges were filed.
Lunch service continued after the incident.
