good advice.

”  . . . I’ve confirmed my hypothesis about enjoying yourself in a new and unfamiliar town.  First rule:  Run away from the hotel, as far and as fast as you can.  Rule Two:  Avoid anyplace where the people like you (meaning out-of-towners or tourists) congregate.  Rule Three:  When you find a crummy bar clogged with locals who seem to be enjoying themselves, go in, sit down, and start drinking.  Be sure to buy a few rounds for your fellow drinkers.  At the appropriate moment, inquire of the best places to eat, emphasizing your criteria to go where no tourists have gone before.  “Where do you eat?”  is a good starting point.  If you hear the same name twice, take note.”
