“In 1986 I was the man­ager of a restau­rant called Lucy’s Re­tired Surfers Bar [in New Or­leans], and it had a great neon sign, so I’ve al­ways been a fan. Over the years, we’ve had neon signs at the Mer­maid that said, ‘No va­cancy,’ with the ‘No’ flash­ing. We have a re­ally big store­front at the new lo­ca­tion, and the logo called out to me as some­thing that would look great in neon.” —— Dan Abrams, co-owner
