Good Morning NOLA!  The rain is  on it’s way out and the sun is making an appearance today.  The trade off is it is cold out there.  Clear and cold works fine for me instead of cold and damp.  If the sun would just stick around long enough to dry me out I might get over this coughing and cold thing I’ve got going on.  Highs today  are in the fifties, clear and cold tonight with the lows dropping back into the thirties.  That seems to be the trend for the next few days before the rain visits us again. Today should be a nice day if you have to travel.  I will always take dry roadways over wet ones.  Grab your jacket and get out there.  The city is waiting.  Have a good hump day y’all.  I’ll see you in NOLA!

Tolly from train station to French Quarter New Orleans?

French Quarter New Orleans

French Quarter New Orleans

Is there a street car that runs from the train station to the French Quarter New Orleans? If not, then whats the best, inexpensive way to travel from there to the French Quarter New Orleans?

 

Transportation to and from the French Quarter New Orleans.

The first answer is a bit off, and the train station is about 12 blocks (almost a mile) from the edge of the French Quarter New Orleans. The French Quarter New Orleans is the best known neighborhood in the city. Many people forget that the French Quarter is in fact a neighborhood. People live and work in the French Quarter. Many live in the French Quarter but work outside the French Quarter.

The nearest streetcar line to the train station is the one for Saint Charles Avenue. The closest stop is several blocks away at the corner of Howard Avenue and Carondolet Street

The website for the Transit Authority is: www.norta.com.

If you have luggage it is best to take a taxi to the French Quarter New Orleans. Taxis are not expensive in the French Quarter New Orleans. If you want to take the streetcar, the staff at the train station can give you directions to the nearest stop.

Hope you have a great time in the French Quarter New Orleans!

 Good Morning NOLA!  Well we are waking up to a very windy day today and the Green Bay Packers are the new Super Bowl Champions.  The Steelers just couldn’t pull it off. I hope they enjoy there year because our Saints will be back next year with an eye on the prize again.  Temperatures should reach the fifties today with partly cloudy skies.  But with so much wind it will probably feel a little colder.  Our lows will drop back into the thirties tonight. Overall it is shaping up to be a relative sunny week. There is still some rain and showers in the forecast but the outlook is mostly clear and cold for the rest of the week with a slight warming over the weekend to come.  With football done, I guess it’s on to the Mardi Gras festivities  and don’t forget Valentines Day is just around the corner.  Whatever you do today, work or play, I hope you have a wonderful day.  See you in NOLA!

Is it safe to visit the French Quarter?

With the stories in the headlines that crime is up in the French Quarter, people are questioning whether to stay in the Quarter or not. I live here by choice and love it.  Here is an example of what others are saying.

 

French Quarter-Bourbon_Street-New_Orleans

French Quarter-Bourbon_Street-New_Orleans

My sister and I are in our early twenties and would like to visit and stay in New Orleans French Quarter, but we are a bit weary from everything we’ve heard. We mostly want to visit one of their many cemeteries, plantations and go on a swamp boat ride.
Would it be safe to stay at a hotel in the french quarter?
I’ve already heard if we go, not to dress nicely and at night not to walk on the sidewalk where the cars are parked (I guess people like to jump out from behind them and mug tourists)
Any other advice for us?

As an end of college road trip this past June, me and 5 other girls (all 21 or 22) took a road trip down to New Orleans. And it was a wonderful trip! But it is crowded, and lots of drunk people around every turn. Here are my tips and advice for young women traveling the French quarter alone:

1.On the weekends on Bourbon street they have mounted police.
2.We stayed at the Holliday Inn French quarter, there was a door man (guard) every day and night.
3.Stay in eye site of each other when walking around, it is very easy to become separated. (in bars go to the bathroom together even, not as important for restaurants)
4.If you feel tired or threatened walk into the nearest hotel lobby and sit down. No one is going to mess with you in a hotel lobby, and as long as you walk in and act like you belong you will not be asked to leave. (I have done this several times)
5.I never felt uncomfortable or unsafe when walking around bourbon street day or night or at the plantations and other tourist sites.
6.Do not carry all your money on you at once.
7.Keep emergency credit card numbers in you room incase your cards are stolen.
8.Use Common Sense
9.The ghost tours are a fun and really show you the history of the area.
10.Ask for advice on places to go from you hotel desk or restaurants or bars, not the stands on the street.
11.Visit Jackson square, especially during the day. Artists are out showing off their works. Also selling them.
12.You can barging for your purchases at the French Market.
13.Enjoy your self!

It is a great city with the culture unlike any other. Go and have fun. Do not worry, about what could happen. Use common sense and things will end up ok.

(Also if you enjoy Piano Bars, Pat O’ Brians has a wonderful one and the best hamburger I have ever had is in a restaurant right across the street from side entrance, I believe it was called Yo Mammas)

Court of Two Sisters

Judging from the gorgeous day I spent in the French Quarter yesterday, spring is sneaking up on us.  With sunshine and birdsong I can’t think of a better place to enjoy a scrumptious Jazz  Brunch in the Big Easy than the Court of Two Sisters.  Located at  613 Royal Street in the heart of the New Orleans French Quarter the buffet style spread is vast or just order from the extensive menu.  One is as good as the next, but believe me the brunch doesn’t leave much out.  You may not need to eat the rest of the day! The relaxing courtyard seating and the New Orleans Jazz music is just the ticket to start a beautiful NOLA day. A mimosa or two is the perfect compliment for this whole leisurely dining event.
 
Easter and Mother’s Day are coming soon! The Court of Two Sisters is the perfect place for your special family gathering. Mom will love this!! (Hint, Hint) Reservations, which are highly recommended, can be requested by visiting www.courtoftwosisters.com or by calling 504-522-7261.

If you can’t make it to the Crescent City anytime soon, try out this recipe from the famous kitchen at the Court of Two Sisters just to tide you over until you can experience heaven on a fork in person.

It’s Robbie Coltrane (Cracker , Harry Potter) that’s running away at the beginning. Shot at the end by Jools Holland (Squeeze).

Recorded in 1985, the same year that the LP was released, this recording is acoustic based like the Twilight version.

The book siginings at the 1850′s House Store went great. They still have books in the store and I am back in the Quarter. So make plans to come out a get your personalized copies of “I Love You Bigger Than The Sky!” and “IF I Were A French Quarter Rat”.  Whatever you decide to do today, enjoy! See y’all in NOLA!
