Making hard work of this first beer of the day; 1035 already. A cool grey Brussels morning; few spits of rain. I will concentrate on Rue d’Aerschot this afternoon—via Cine Paris, Café Jimmy and Fifth Avenue of course; I have to go through my Stations of the Cross. I would like to check out La Machine, a steampunk-themed bar close to Bourse. And tonight I hope I can check out several new places in Club L’Intime, Reves Table Dance, and the 3 or 4 hostess bars all the way down by Avenue Louise.
