Good Morning NOLA!  I hope you remembered to set your clocks back last night.  If not, now is a great time to do it.  It’s a little cloudy this morning but the sun will be making an appearance this afternoon.  The highs for the Crescent City is seventy-six today and no rain today.  The low tonight in the fifties once again. Tomorrow we may see a few isolated showers as we have a thirty percent chance of rain in the forecast.  Other that the rest of the weel looks clear right on up until next Sunday.  It will be a great week to take care of all the outdoor chores and errands that you have on your “to do” list.  Next Saurday I will be out at Palmer Park signing books and will have matted prints for the CDP fundraiser. In spite of the thirty percent chance of showers next Sunday, I will be signing books again at the 1850’s House Store on Jackson Square.  Come out and get your signed copy of  “If I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  I will also have copies of  “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky! ” on hand.  Mark your calendars and plan.

See y’all in NOLA.

Recommendations for hotels in the French Quarter?

Can anyone recommend a hotel in the French Quarter of New Orleans or nearby where they had a good experience (or where they did NOT have a good experience) thats also reasonably priced? I’m taking into consideration: good location, good price, clean rooms, parking, etc.

This is not for Mardi Gras. It’s a Spring Break trip for my boyfriend and I. We’d like to stay for 1 or 2 nights.

The Royal Sonesta is very nice & actually affordable IF you book online. It’s in a great location. That’s usually where I stay when I go (I live in Baton Rouge). There’s also a Holiday Inn French Quarter that’s nice, not quite as nice as Royal – but it’s a little cheaper. Make sure you book online, you’ll save money that way.No matter where you stay, you’ll have to pay for parking – that’s just New Orleans. My recommendation – park and walk EVERYWHERE you go. Most places you’ll want to see are within walking distance anyway.

Make sure that ya’ll go eat at Mulates, you’ll enjoy it. They have great food, a wonderful staff & the prices are not too high. I hope you have a wonderful time :-)

WHY: The Historic New Orleans Collection will once again feature “Historic Haunts: The Myths and Legends of the Vieux Carré” throughout the month of October. Introduced in 2009, the popular Halloween-inspired tour of The Collection’s Louisiana History Galleries explores the truth behind New Orleans’s more seedy legends and the French Quarter’s most infamous characters. The tour discusses the documented history and how it may have inspired the legends, allowing attendees to decide on their own what is myth and what is grisly truth.  Including the likes of Voodoo Queen Marie Laveau, rumored sadistic slave-owner Madame Lalaurie and pirate Jean Laffite, the tour examines 10 “haunted” locations in the Quarter using research conducted at the Williams Research Center.

Tours are available daily Tuesday–Sunday, October 1–30, at 2 p.m. On Halloween Sunday, October 31, three tours will be offered, at 11 a.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. “Historic Haunts” is intended for an adult audience. Admission is $5, free for THNOC members.

Good Morning NOLA!  I am really loving this sunshine.  I can’t get enough of it.  It looks like we have another beautiful day shaping up out there.  I can’t wait to get out there and hit the streets.  Our highs around the Big Easy for today are in the upper sixities nudging right at that seventies mark.  Maybe a light jacket or sweater to start the morning but it will probably be tied around your neck by lunch time.  Only a ten percent chance of rain today.  Beware for tomorow though.  The chance goes up to seventy percent but dropping to twenty percent for Monday. I really hope it drops a little more.  I have a night shoot scheduled for Monday night and it will be a street scene.  Have I told you I hate cold and damp?  Anyway, I plan to make the most of today and spend most of it “rattin” around the French Quarter. Maybe a little brunch at the Court of Two Sisters to start off my day. Y’all have a wonderful weekend.  I’ll see you in NOLA!

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!
