Isn't "the evening" in French just "le soir" ? --- Googled, read explanations and I still wouldn't fully agree with soiree = evening, but I guess you *could* say it that way too.

My first thought was Northhampton. And after that Saint Helens. One of those questions which really isn't very fair to non-Americans. Also slot machine needs more type ins. I tried "fruit machine" and "puggy/puggie" and neither worked.

Either this is not about the Copacabana in Rio, or there is another town called Havana in Brazil, because the geography in that lyric doesn't make sense otherwise.
