I am visiting New Orleans and want to know about exciting things to do?

Hello All,

I am visiting New Orleans in January 2009 and would like to know where are the hot spots? Are there any great restaurants, night clubs or other tourist attractions to try out? I will be coming with my job so it would definitely be after 5-6pm outings.

Thanks

There is a restaurant on the corner of Conti and Bourbon called Ole New Awlins Cookery. I used to live in Baton Rouge area and have actually driven to New Orleans just to eat at this restaurant. I highly recommend the BBQ Shrimp. As for the haunted tours, they give a lot of false information but if that doesn’t matter to you it may be exciting. If into the haunted thing look up New Orleans ghost stories. If you find no info on that email me at marielaveau1794@yahoo.com and I can forward you info on haunted places there.


New Orleans Hooray!

This is the video from my set at La Noir Comedy Theater in NEW ORLEANS! Some old stuff, some new stuff, enjoy it. I love NOLA now and you can tell because I called it NOLA. Honestly, the comedy down there is really tight and the people are so supportive, creative, and of course funny. Thank you New Orleans for the best trip of my life. I’m going to try and recreate that scene up here or (what is more likely than changing the CT) I’ll live there. Check ‘em out http://nolacomedy.com/

Hurricane Katrina New Orleans, 08/29/2005 Pre Dawn Video.

On 08/29/2005 I was in downtown New Orleans on assignment for The Weather Channel and I was the freelance videographer “Weather Paparazzi” who stayed in the city to document the storm while everyone else evacuated the area. This footage was shot during the pre dawn hours as hurricane Katrina started to rip apart the city. I shot this on Canal Street and in the French Quarter. The video shows the city losing power as well as the start of the flooding from the heavy rain and damage. I was the only one out in the storm shooting video and getting blasted by the deadly flying debris. This is part of the BNVN Weather Paparazzi stock video collection.

78s – NOLA – Milt Raskin’s Hollywood Ragtimers

Nola Song

Felix Arndt – 1915: What the Mississippi Rag is to piano ragtime, Nola is to the genre of Novelty piano solos. While actually not a true novelty rag, it was certainly a pioneering effort in that direction and one of the most well known pieces of a style that would ultimately become a display of pianistic prowess. Arndt started out as a self-taught pianist and later studied with some of the best teachers in New York. He became a staff musician for the Duo-Art reproducing piano company, cutting many spectacular rolls totaling 3000 in all during his short tenure there. Nola was composed for his fiance of the time, Nola Locke, who was both a vocal teacher and professional concert singer. This piano solo caught on very quickly, and lyrics were later added to a simplified version of it. There was even a modified fox trot edition in the early 1920s. Unfortunately for all, Arndt’s life was cut short during the world-wide flu epidemic of 1918. Based on his few published compositions, he certainly had the potential to equal the talents of Billy Mayerl or Zez Confrey, both successful novelty and jazz composers.
