In New Orleans with G1, but my battery and charger are in Baltimore. Now what?

What do I do? I'm staying in the central business district not far from the French Quarter; the conference hotel is on Poydras St.
Is there a camera shop I can reasonably get to (without a car) that would actually have the battery and could charge it for me?
I already tried some of the Canal St. places, but they didn't have the Panasonic battery, tried to charge me more for their off-brand version than the Panasonic costs, and wanted to sell me some different charger that you could just barely wedge the battery into.

(By the way, this is entirely my fault. I left the battery charging overnight and never put it back in. Makes me think I could use a spare battery anyway.)

Wow Streetshooter, that is one really generous offer. Are you sure you want to make an offer like that to someone with 1 post?
I presumably have a day to decide :) and see what comes up. Thanks.

Man that is some bad luck. You would think in a town as big as New Orleans there would be a battery and charger for you at a fair price. I would look on Newegg. They might have it and they have warehouses in California, New Jersey and Canada. They can next day stuff but only if turned in early and on a weekday. Amazon too.
