Good Morning NOLA!  It’s going to be a hot one today. By this afternoon we will reach near record  high in the  eighties.  Only a twenty percent chance of rain in the forecast today but our chances increase over the weekend.  By Monday of next week we will see a forty percent chance.  The forecast is showing a twenty percent chance of showers for Saturday and Sunday. It is only suppose to be isolated thunder storms but be prepared. Tuesday looks like it will start a few days of rain for the Big Easy.  I will have the umbrella at the ready but there is plenty of cover in the Quarter. What’s a little rain after all. So don’t let that keep you from coming out to the French Quarter to see me at the 1850′s House Store.  I will be signing my latest book “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” and also  “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!”  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy!

What is there to do in New Orleans this week?

My friends and I are staying near downtown in New Orleans right now for spring break and we’re trying to find fun, cool things to do. We’ve already gone to the French Quarter and Bourbon st. and to many of the bars there and we’re planning on going on a voodoo tour tonight but we’re sure there’s more out there. Any ideas or suggestions?

Wednesday is Saint Particks Day.

More things to do in New Orleans:

Mardi Gras and the Jazz Festival are world famous events, but New Orleans hosts many festivals and celebrations throughout the year: www.nola.com/festivals

There are many tours offered and examples are:

www.graylineneworleans.com
www.hauntedhistorytours.com

http://www.saveourcemeteries.org/tours/index.htm

The Saint Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operating street railway in the world and is a "tourist attraction" in its own right. It is part of the public transit system, as are the Canal Street and Riverfront streetcar lines: www.norta.com

There is always music, but the bands change: Go to www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music.

Note that music clubs often advertise "No Cover", meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with "No Cover" often require that customers buy a beverage each for every "set" of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so KNOW THE PRICE before you sit down. Clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking nothing (clubs only make money from the drinks they sell – not from the music). It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it is delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.

An incomplete guide to bars & clubs:

http://www.10best.com/New_Orleans,LA/Nightlife/

www.neworleanscheapdrinks.com

About certain alcoholic beverages: Realize that some famous drinks are VERY potent compared with regular cocktails that have only 1 to 1 ½ ounces of alcohol. For example, a Hurricane is basically 3 or 4 ounces of rum in something like red Kool-Aid, and a Hand Grenade has at least 4 ½ ounces of Everclear + rum + vodka mixed with melon liquor. They don’t necessarily taste like an alcoholic beverage and it is easy to over-indulge.

The Riverwalk shopping center has an air-conditioned food court with dining overlooking the river (www.riverwalkmarketplace.com).

The Canal Place shopping center is in the French Quarter and has a cinema and higher-end shopping (Saks 5th Avenue, Brooks Brothers, etc.).

Magazine Street is a miles-long shopping district: www.magazinestreet.com

Purchases of art may be tax-exempt: http://www.crt.state.la.us/culturaldistricts/DistrictMaps.aspx

The lobby for the Westin Canal Place Hotel is on the 11th floor and overlooks the French Quarter. It is a great place for an afternoon drink/snack:(www.westin.com).

Cafe du Monde is in the French Quarter and you shouldn’t miss having cafe au lait & beignets (www.cafedumonde.com). Another great coffee shop is the Croissant d’Or (at 617 Ursulines Street), which is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm and has food in addition to pastry.

The Palm Court restaurant is very nice, has moderate prices, and offers traditional live jazz starting at 8:00pm: 1204 Decatur Street, tel 504-525-0200 (reservations are important and they are not open every day). The Palm Court is closed from about mid-July 25th to sometime in August each year: http://www.palmcourtjazzcafe.com/

Maximo’s Italian Grill has great food and atmosphere: 1117 Decatur Street in the French Quarter, (504) 586-8883. www.maximosgrill.com

All of the famous restaurants (Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Brennan’s, Commander’s Palace, etc.) reopened after Katrina. The Pelican Club (on Exchange Alley in the FQ) is not as well known but is the same type experience. Reservations are a good idea, and probably essential on weekends. Tujaques Restaurant (823 Decatur Street) is very traditional and has moderate prices: www.tujaguesrestaurant.com

Cafe Degas is a very French restaurant near City Park at 3127 Esplanade – which is not within walking distance of downtown (5 to 10 minutes by taxi). They are closed on Mondays & Tuesdays (504-945-5635). www.cafedegas.com

The Napoleon House restaurant is at 500 Chartres Street in the FQ, and has a menu of great local dishes: www.napoleonhouse.com

More restaurant suggestions: http://www.10best.com/New_Orleans,LA/Restaurants/

Preservation Hall has traditional live Jazz, and doesn’t serve alcohol so all ages are welcome: www.preservationhall.com

New Orleans has ballet, opera, a symphony orchestra, and theatre:

www.nobadance.com
www.neworleansopera.org
www.lpomusic.com
www.lepetittheatre.com

There is a free ferry across the Mississippi at the "foot" of Canal Street. It is a short trip but like a harbor cruise w/o a guide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/canal_street_ferry

The Aquarium, Audubon Zoo, and the new Insectarium are world-class attractions (www.auduboninstitute.org) and you should see them if you can. The Zoo is several miles from downtown. You can drive to the Zoo (which has free parking) or take public transit from the French Quarter.

The Louisiana State Museum is in the French Quarter: http://lsm.crt.state.la.us/ New Orleans is also home to a number of other museums, such as the National World War II Museum (http://www.nationalww2museum.org/) and the New Orleans Museum of Art (www.noma.org). Both can be reached by public transit: The WWII museum is in the central business district but a long walk from the French Quarter. NOMA is not within walking distance of downtown but has free parking. Go to www.neworleansmuseums.com for info on more museums.

Harrah’s Casino is in the Central Business District: www.harrahs.com (age 21 required for entry)

New Orleans City Park has a variety of attractions + free parking. (www.neworleanscitypark.com).

Check www.frenchquarter.com and http://www.nola.com/visitor/ for ideas about other things to do.

I hope you have a great time!

Five Highlights of Golf in the Loire Valley

The Loire Valley is known as one of the most beautiful regions in France – rolling hills, beautiful chateaux, and lush countryside all along the length of the Loire River at its heart. Away from the crowds at the golf courses in the North of France, golf in the Loire Valley is a great pleasure for those in the know. Located at the centre of the country, the Loire is within easy reach of visitors from the UK – here are just a few of the highlights of a golf holiday to this magical part of France…

The Scenery

Known as “The Garden of France” the Loire Valley is a delight to explore. You can take riverside walks along the Loire itself, explore the shaded woodlands, or go on a day trip to beautiful historic towns such as Tours and Angers. The Loire’s golf courses take full advantage of this gorgeous scenery, and a round of golf here is a real feast for the eyes.

The Weather

Although it is relatively close to the UK, the Loire is far south enough to enjoy excellent year round weather. All of the courses in the region are open and maintained for the whole year – no matter when you want to play golf in the Loire Valley, you’ll enjoy outstanding weather and a great selection of courses.

The Chateaux

The Loire Valley is justly famed for its glorious chateaux. These outstandingly maintained country houses are a real pleasure to look upon, and it is rare that more than five miles passes in the Loire before you stumble across another one of these beautiful buildings. These aren’t just to be admired as you pass through – many golf courses in the Loire have a chateau as a central feature, or even as the clubhouse!

The Courses

There’s more to golf in the Loire Valley than just the beautiful scenery as it features many of the best courses in the country. There are numerous courses in the region; perhaps the best is Les Bordes in Saint-Laurent-Nouan. Rated as the joint number one course in Europe, every single hole is a fresh challenge and a delight to play, and the outstanding clubhouse is the perfect place to relax before or after you play. Running a close second is Limere Orleans; host to several PGA Championships, the woodland course is a beautiful and satisfying place to play golf in the Loire Valley.

The Hotels

The quality of the courses in matched by the Loire Valley’s many luxury golf hotels. Chateau des Sept Tours is the only Chateau-golf hotel in the Loire, and offers a truly unforgettable place to stay, or there is ‘La Tonnellerie’, a delightful family run hotel in a 19th century mansion. ‘Mercure le Sloi’ is right next to a ten mile stretch of beach, and the excellent ‘Hotel de France’ is right in the centre of Angers. However you want to stay during a golf break in the Loire, you are sure to find a hotel to suit your tastes.

The Fleur De Lis Is The Symbol Used By The New Orleans Saints But It Is So Much More.

New Orleans

The fleur-de-lis is a symbol used by the people of New Orleans for years. It was adopted by the New Orleans Saints.

New Orleans

New Orleans Loves Its Fleur de lis

This was part of a controversy when the New Orleans Saints made their Super Bowl run during the 2009 – 2010 season. Ultimately the NFL got slapped down because the symbol has centuries of history in politics, dynasties, art, and religion. This is a symbol that belongs to history and the people of New Orleans not the NFL.

Good Morning NOLA!  That same old sixty percent chance of rain is hanging over our heads.  You know the drill.  Keep the umbrella handy and I would suggest rain appropriate foot gear for today.   A light jacket or sweater will work for those of you that are a little cold natured or that really feel the dampness. The high is sixy four, so another damp day in store. The good news is the forecast for tomorrow shows a beautiful sunny day with only a chance of isolated showers for Thursday.  The weekend looks good and will be here quick with this short work week for some of you.  Enjoy your day and I’ll see you in NOLA!
