Hotel Monteleone celebrates Monte’s birthday with Gumbo, Hugo and friends
New Orleans, LA (May 9, 2011) – Monte the Lion, a friendly mountain lion and the official mascot for the Hotel Monteleone, is having a birthday party with his local mascot friends on Saturday, June 11 from 10am – noon and is inviting all children and families to join in on the fun!
Monte the Lion is one of the most loved – and most cuddly – members of the Hotel Monteleone family. Children attending the party will have the chance to take pictures with Monte on his birthday and play with his mascot friends including Gumbo from the New Orleans Saints, Hugo from the New Orleans Hornets, Boudreaux from the New Orleans Zephyrs, Riptide from Tulane University and Havoc from Loyola University.
A birthday cupcake making station will sweeten the mood along with food, pictures and games. As a special birthday treat, Monte the Lion will premiere his very own children’s book and will sign copies for all party goers. 
“Monte the Lion can’t stop roaring about his birthday celebration with his fellow mascots and friends,” said Andrea Thornton, director of sales and marketing. “This will not only be a special day for him, but it will be a treat for everyone at the party and the Hotel Monteleone family as we see the tale of Monte the Lion come to life in his very own story book.”
Tickets to the birthday party are $25 per person (all taxes, gratuities and fees are included).  Everyone who purchases a ticket will have the chance to win four tickets to “Shrek the Musical” at the Mahalia Jackson Theater and to meet the characters live. “Shrek the Musical” will be in New Orleans May 31 – June 5.

How much does a dancer make on Bourbon Street in New Orleans, Louisiana?

Im trying to make quick money and this is the only way I know how. But just how much money a night would I be taking home?

depends on the tips and what’s in town.

if it’s really slow you could end up with zip, if it’s a big party crowd sky is the limit.

but be aware it’s a tough job and not for the faint of heart.

how are your feet? you’ll be on them a lot

how has gerldo rivera never been killed ?

you’ve got to hand it to him. he’s been around doing his thing for most of my life, putting his life in danger. and now he’s down in nola, playing with a wind speed toy. go geraldo!

I don’t know how he has never gotten injured if only by an ex-wife. Ha ha He goes to all those places and does daring things because he wants to find a niche for himself in the media and talk-shows etc are all taken. So he tries "specials " with himself as the MC. Some are kind of interesting , and others are bust. I agree you have to give the guy credit for hanging in there all these years. He’s is always pleasant too.

I am going to New Orleans (bourbon street) in October. What is a nice, good, fun hotel for 8 people to stay?

I am not necessarily looking for something cheap, but something fairly nice and of course FUN!!1

Stay at loews New Orleans. It is really nice and we stayed there one night for a wedding. The Reception was there. Also, If you want to stay on bourbon st. Stay at the Inn on Bourbon or Royal Sonesta. I prefer Royal Sonesta.

Good Morning NOLA!  It’s a little chilly out there.  It feels like forty-six at the moment but it will warm up as our day progresses.  The high today is in the mid sixties with our lower falling into the low fifties for tonight.  A jacket is a good idea first thing this morning and after the sun goes down tonight.  You won’t have to worry about the umbrella though, there is no rain in the forecast until possibly Monday.  We are showing a few isolated showers then.  Get out and enjoy this beautiful weather. All in all it ought to be a wonderful weekend.  I am really looking forward to my book signing on Jackson Square tomorrow.  If you are out and about come on by.  I would love to see you there. Everyone needs a copy of “If I Were A French Quarter Rat” and I will even sign it for you.  Don’t forgot to adjust your clocks this weekend too.  Have a fun Friday and I will see you in NOLA!

What is a bar you can get into at 19 in the french quarter?

My husband and i have grown up in louisiana.I have been to the french quarter often but not the bars because i am only 19.My husband turned 21 the day he shipped off to south carolina for basic training . I am 2yrs younger. We both want to go to at least one bar in the french quarter before we ship off to germany for his first duty station.Any help is appreciated.

Under Louisiana state law:

Underage Consumption of Alcohol
Consumption is prohibited WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTION(S):
• private residence
• OR parent/guardian presence and consent
• OR legal-age spouse
• one or more specified religious, educational, or medical purposes

Furnishing of Alcohol to Minors
Furnishing is prohibited WITH THE FOLLOWING EXCEPTION(S):
• parent/guardian
• OR legal-age spouse

That does not obligate a bar to serve you, as a business reserves the right to refuse service to anyone. However, should the bar choose to do so, there is no violation of the law by you or the bar as long as you are accompanied by a legal-age spouse.

What do i have to do to be able to have a palm reading and art stand on bourbon street in New Orleans, Louisia?

i want to be able to read palms and sell my art work on bourbon street but i know that it is illegal to just set up shop on the street… does anybody know how i can be able to do that legally?

Those are done in Jackson Square by many people. Perhaps just ask one of the numerous vendors where they got their permit.
