I’m vacationing to New Orleans in a week, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on places to go for food, cultural experiences, bars, tourist attractions??? Thanks :)

New Orleans is hot & humid in August so pack lightweight, light color, all-cotton clothing. A hat, sunglasses, good walking shoes, and a travel umbrella can be important. Do outdoor things (ex. Zoo) in the mornings and save air conditioned things (ex. museums) for the afternoons. Note that many restaurants are VERY air conditioned.

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 an example is: http://www.graylineneworleans.com/

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:

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.

Wander around the French Quarter, enjoy the architecture, watch the street entertainers (do tip), and visit some of the historic buildings that have been turned into museums (go to www.frenchquarter.com and click on Historic Attractions).

Assuming the weather is good, you can collect a sandwich lunch and eat in the riverfront park (watch the shipping) or in Jackson Square (a very nice park).

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.). http://www.landmarktheatres.com/market/NewOrleans/CanalPlaceCinema.htm

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

Louisiana is the only US state that offers tax-free shopping for international visitors: http://www.louisianataxfree.com/

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 615 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.

All of the famous restaurants (Antoine’s, Arnaud’s, Brennan’s, Commander’s Palace, etc.) have reopened. 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.

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).

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

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.

 

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.

The Aquarium, Audubon Zoo, and the new Insectarium are world-class attractions 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 is also home to a number of other museums, such as the National World War II Museum  and the New Orleans Museum of Art. 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 click on the link above for more info on additional museums.

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

New Orleans City Park has a variety of attractions + free parking.

Hope you have a great time while you are staying in New Orleans.

Top 5 Vehicle Friendly US Cities Named

According to the “Shell America’s Autopias” study released today by Shell Oil Products US – New Orleans, St. Louis, Kansas City, Atlanta, and Phoenix are the top 5 vehicle friendly US cities.

The study evaluated the 50 largest metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) and found that New Orleans is “America’s Autopia,” when it comes to automobiles. The study measured a variety of factors to identify which metro areas are best suited for automobiles, including traffic congestion, road conditions, motorists’ use of quality gasoline and motor oils, and routine car maintenance practices. Shell believes using high-quality gasoline is an important aspect of overall car care.

The company also commissioned the “Shell America’s Autopias” study to better understand how vehicles are cared for and maintained in the United States.

Mary Jackson, an automotive expert and author of the best-selling book Car Smarts said, “The study showed that some cities clearly have an edge in how vehicle-friendly they are, and New Orleans topped the list, thanks to the time and effort local drivers invest in caring for their vehicles. She added that the vehicle is typically the second largest purchase that most consumers make, so it is important to protect cars as their investment. And while motorists may not be able to control traffic, road conditions and other factors that affect the wear and tear of their automobiles, they can take an active role in protecting their cars by performing routine maintenance and using high-quality products, such as gasoline that meet TOP TIER Detergency Standards.”

To determine the rankings for an Autopia or Car Care Utopian Cities, researchers from Decision Analyst, Inc., a Texas-based independent research firm, scored and ranked each MSA in three primary areas that can impact the overall care and operation of a vehicle. These are the quality of fuel and motor oil, routine car care and maintenance, and road conditions and congestion. Within each of these key areas, the research organization weighed the following variables equally to determine each metropolitan area’s level of car care and identify America’s Autopias.

According to the Decision Analyst, Inc.,the variables that contribute to the Quality of Fuel and Motor Oil. are the percentage of gasoline sold by retailer based on consumer survey data, specifically taking into account those retailers that sell TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline, and the amount of high-mileage, semi-synthetic and full-synthetic oil that is purchased. TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline is a new standard for gasoline that surpasses minimum government standards for gasoline detergency additives. According to BMW, General Motors, Honda and Toyota, the automakers that developed the standard, TOP TIER Detergent Gasoline will help keep vehicle engines clean and reduce deposit-related problems, helping vehicles achieve optimal performance as well as reduced emissions.

The Routine Car Care and Maintenance criterion included the number of maintenance facilities (gasoline stations, car washes and oil change facilities) in the market per vehicle and the amount of money spent at these facilities. Purchases of routine car care products and services, such as oil changes and tire rotation and replacement, also were taken into consideration. The husky liner would be of great help to automotive protection as it is a manufacturer of front, second seat, and cargo liner for SUVs, trucks, and cars. Its products vary from mud guards, to floor liners, floor mats, and other replaceable parts. It is popularly known for its liners, mats, and mud flaps, the parts that keep vehicles squeaky clean inside and out.

The last criterion, which is the Road Conditions and Congestion, included the physical conditions of roadways and the amount or duration of traffic congestion within the metro area that can have an impact on the wear and tear of a vehicle. Also included was the percentage of roads in disrepair in urban areas and the amount of money that is spent to improve them.

Shell further said that New Orleans got the top rank due to its being No. 1 in the quality of fuel and motor oil category and the fact that local residents spend more on car care than residents in most other areas.

Louisiana aka L.A. South

USA Today Article Versatile Louisiana becomes ‘L.A. South’ for movie shoots

http://www.usatoday.com/life/movies/news/2010-08-03-louisianafilm03_CV_N.htm

By Claudia Puig, USA TODAY

[QUOTE]

Hollywood is eternally searching for the filmmaking Shangri-La. In the 1990s, filmmakers often traveled to Canada. But that eventually became less fashionable, and these days the industry is migrating in a different direction — to Louisiana. “L.A. South” has become the go-to spot for shooting movies.

Even before the economic recession hit Hollywood, the state of Louisiana had been quietly gaining stature as the place to make quality movies and stretch dollars.

“We have the largest number of productions outside of Los Angeles and New York City,” says Chris Stelly, director of film for Louisiana Entertainment, a division of the state office of economic development.

“Like Vancouver used to be ‘Hollywood North,’ Louisiana’s the hot spot now,” says Patrick Lussier, director of Drive Angry 3D, a supernatural road movie starring Nicolas Cage and Amber Heard, opening in February.

The state subbed for Texas, Colorado and New Mexico in Drive Angry, Lussier says.

The consummate versatile character actor, Louisiana has also played Utah, Washington, D.C., and London. “The film industry wants to find places it can reinvent and make look like anything it needs,” Lussier says. “There’s a lot of opportunity do that in Louisiana.”

Movies shooting in Louisiana range from mega-budget blockbusters to quirky indies. Films shot this year include testosterone-fueled action-adventure The Expendables, which opens Aug. 13, and the comic book-inspired The Green Lantern, due in 2011. The low-budget horror film The Last Exorcism opens Aug. 27, and the big-screen version of the 1960s TV show The Big Valley arrives next year.

And the films cross all sectors, from Oscar bait to tween phenomena. The much-nominated The Curious Case of Benjamin Button was shot in New Orleans in 2008, and Breaking Dawn, the fourth installment in the hugely successful Twilight series, films this year in Baton Rouge.

In 2009, 60 films and TV shows shot in Louisiana. By mid-2010, 85 productions have already signed on, Stelly says: “We’re well on our way to having a record-breaking year.”

New Orleans as Anytown, USA

The boom is most visible around New Orleans. In 2009, 22 movies and TV shows filmed there. Records have already been broken in 2010; by July, 24 projects had shot there.

“We’re way ahead of the curve in the New Orleans region,” says Katie Gunnell, interim director of the city’s Office of Film and Television. “The city has seen an incredible bump in applications for 2011 as well.”

Across the state, work is consistent and year-round, despite hurricane season and blazing summer temperatures. “We’ve maintained 20 to 25 productions at any given time during the year,” Stelly says. “We’ve doubled for New York City, Los Angeles, the Northwest, basically Anytown, USA.”

Those who have shot there point to several factors contributing to the region’s appeal: diversity of scenery, financial incentives and proficient crews.

“You can get an 1800s look, you can get a Parisian look,” says Todd Lewis, producer of The Chaperone. “You can get suburbs, you can get the country. It’s got a little bit of everything.” His movie, out next year, is one of several Louisiana-based films funded by World Wrestling Entertainment and featuring wrestling stars, in this case Paul “Triple H” Levesque.

Director Rod Lurie was looking to duplicate rural Mississippi in Straw Dogs, a remake of the 1971 classic coming out next year. He did so in and around Shreveport. “They really do have it all there,” he says. “You can go anywhere from swamps to beautiful rivers to cities to football stadiums. We were able to shoot the entire film within a 10-mile radius.”

Jonah Hex, the supernatural action thriller in theaters earlier this summer, used New Orleans to double for the Old West.

Though producer Andrew Lazar initially had reservations about shooting a Western in Louisiana, his concerns disappeared when he considered the obvious. “The French Quarter hasn’t changed much over the years, so you don’t need a lot of set dressing,” Lazar says. “We just put some dirt on the road and we were back in the 1870s.”

Says Lussier: “New Orleans has so many looks. You can get a European look, and it also has an unmistakable feeling of the American frontier. It’s such an amazing city unto itself. Why not take advantage of it?”

Filmmakers say it’s hard to go wrong with scenery like this.

“Wherever you point the camera, you have a beautiful and picturesque set design,” says Daniel Stamm, director of The Last Exorcism. “And the atmosphere does something for the actors. It’s so old world. We shot at a plantation, and the smell and the sounds of the floorboards did something to the atmosphere that’s tangible, that you wouldn’t get in L.A. on a soundstage.”

Stamm’s horror movie was enhanced by the surprise appearance of a toothy visitor.

“We were shooting in the Ninth Ward (an area in New Orleans hard-hit by Katrina), and you could still see the waterline in this old plantation,” Stamm says. “One day, we couldn’t shoot for three hours because an alligator had crawled on set. That does something to the team, something you can’t fake.”

Tax incentives best in USA

The hauntingly creative vibe may be palpable, but the bottom line is equally alluring.

The state offers the most competitive economic and tax incentives of any in the country. A system of financial perks was enacted after Hurricane Katrina destroyed $81 billion in property and killed 1,836 people in 2005.

“We approached it like a business, and it keeps (filmmakers) coming back, based on our reliability and stability,” Stelly says. “For every dollar you spend in the state, we’ll give you 30% back (in rebates). And we give you an additional 5% for hiring Louisiana residents on productions.”

Tax incentives can be sold as credits or used to offset personal or corporate income tax, he says.

“As things get more expensive, you have to go wherever you get the budget relief,” Lussier notes. “You can no longer use Mulholland Drive for your backwoods road movie.”

There is also the sense among filmmakers that they are helping an area that sorely needs a hand in bouncing back from one of the worst natural disasters in history.

“Louisiana has been through so much, and I’m glad to be able to make a film there,” says Nicole Kidman, who is shooting the 2011 film Trespass in Shreveport this summer with Nicolas Cage.

“The economy desperately needs the film business,” Lurie says. “And it’s fantastic watching people get employed. We hired a thousand people to be extras and put a couple of hundred bucks in their pockets, and that’s helpful to the economy. The film commission is among the most proactive I’ve ever seen.”

Between that obliging spirit and the financial incentives, Lurie says, “It doesn’t pay to make movies in Los Angeles anymore. You can save too much money by going out of town.”

Crews with skill, enthusiasm

Shooting movies outside Hollywood is certainly not new. But the more common scenario is to shoot segments in distant cities and use Hollywood studios as a base. As more films are shot in Louisiana, the ancillary businesses and infrastructure associated with the industry — post-production centers and soundstages — are also increasingly cropping up.

Every Hollywood-based filmmaker interviewed spoke glowingly of the local production personnel and regional actors.

“Because of all that’s being shot there, local crews get better and better,” says Ken Zunder, cinematographer for The Chaperone. “You get a lot of crews that are very savvy here. It’s not like going to, say, Detroit.”

The combination of skill and energy is something particularly appreciated by those coming from Hollywood.

“In L.A., everyone is exhausted by the film business, with all the noise and shooting at night,” Stamm says. “Down there, everyone is not jaded. There is still an enthusiasm about the whole thing.”

So much enthusiasm, in fact, that some Los Angeles residents have moved south with the jobs.

Producer Joshua Throne made several films in the state, the latest being The Expendables. He has homes in both Louisiana and Los Angeles. Throne’s next project is The Technician, co-starring Kevin Bacon and Kurt Russell, which will shoot in Louisiana in January.

“There’s such a zest for life here,” he says. “There’s lots of good food, good people, wonderful history, and it still has the Southern charm.”

Lewis and his wife also have made the move to New Orleans. “I love L.A., I really do,” he says. “And I’m sorry that productions are running away from L.A., but this is a really easy and cost-efficient place to make movies.”

Ed Borasch Jr., a property master, moved from Southern California. “I have to go where the work is,” he says. “It’s just so much nicer and quieter here, and the traffic’s not as crazy, and the people are super friendly. You feel like you’re welcomed here. I lived in Los Angeles for 15 years, and that was a great run for me, but the work dried up, and now my time is here.” Meanwhile, he’s gotten married, had a baby and laid down roots.

‘A sexy city’

Some stars have bought homes in New Orleans in recent years, including Brad Pitt, Sandra Bullock and Cage, who has shot several movies there.

Actress Annabeth Gish shot two films in New Orleans this summer. The first was The Fields, co-starring Sam Worthington and Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and the second was The Chaperone.

“So much is happening in New Orleans,” says Gish, who’s married to stunt coordinator Wade Allen. “It’s been a long time since I or my husband shot in Los Angeles. You’d think with Arnold (Schwarzenegger) as our governor, we’d be bringing movies back to L.A.

“But one of the great things about coming here on location is you feel like you’re paying back the debt the country owes by being here and feeding the economy. And it’s a character in its own right, so saturated with culture and flavor. It’s a sexy city with so much history — a little hot, though.”

Hollywood types are never shy about complaining, but except for occasional remarks about the searing summer heat, no one has a negative thing to say about the southward migration. “The love affair is on,” Lussier says. “When filming starts going to a place, there’s a real excitement. You can feel that, and it can be very productive for both sides.”

Ties between Canada and Hollywood grew frayed as resentment mounted over film crews taking up so much space in cities like Vancouver and Toronto. Will Hollywood and Louisiana maintain a lasting romance?

“It’ll be interesting to see if seven or eight years down the road, people get tired of road closures and the novelty of having movies come to their town,” says Lussier. “For now, it’s great. Hopefully, it will last a while.”

Good Morning NOLA!  Brrr!  What is going on out there?  The little cool front we were promised after all that rain on Saturday is still hanging on.  Yesterday was downright chilly out in the streets.  I was working on Canal and Decatur for most of the day on the movie Medallion.  The wind was slicing through us and my feather wig was dancing all day. Todays high is suppose be sixty-six but we never made it to our high yesterday.  Today will be partly cloudy and it is looking like we have more rain in the forecast for Mardi Gras day and Wednesday. Get the rain gear out and keep the umbrella handy.  If it is anything like Saurday I highly recommend rain boots or shoes of some kind. The rain will move out for the rest of the week and we should have a nice mid to end of the week.  Saturday the twelfth looks awesome so come out to the Quarter for my book signing at the 1850′s House Store on the Square. Have fun and be safe out there.  I’ll see you in NOLA!
