As a drummer, Marsalis collaborates frequently with his father and his brothers Delfeayo and Branford. When he is not filling the drum chairs in these groups, Marsalis performs as a vibraphonist with his own quartet and with musicians such as Shannon Powell, Irvin Mayfield and others.
 
Southern Eagle is a beverage-based wholesaler and distributor of Anheuser Busch products and its alliance brands throughout southeastern Louisiana. Avia wines come from Slovenia, just across the Italian border, where they benefit from the Mediterranean climate and the warm breezes of the Adriatic Sea. Heiner Brau is a Covington-based microbrewery owned by German brewmaster Henryk Orlik.

How will the newly arrived Tulane and Loyola students be evacuated from NOLA (in case it happens)?

I so hope it doesn’t!

I put up with Katrina, then we had to sit through Rita (family lives in Houston), and now … GUSTAV?!

Stupid hurricanes…
And I guess this applies to UNO and Xavier students, too.

I would imagine they’ll charter buses and move those without a place to go to temporary shelters.

What was the original way New Orleans was pronounced?

I understand the locals normally say N’orlins – Stress on the Nor.
I was just curious if there was an original French way in which Orleans may have been pronounced. Currently I say New Orlins – stress on the Or, but when I was young I would say New Orleens – stress on the leens.

Only Hollywood and tourists call the city N”Awlins.

The original name of the city was in French: Nouvelle Orleans. It is pronounced new vell ore lay on.

There are two "normal” pronunciations today:

New Or le ans (Orleans is 3 syllables)
New Or leans (Orleans is 2 syllables)

The issue is somewhat confused by the fact the City of New Orleans is also (same boundaries) Orleans Parish (parish = county). Everyone says Or leans Parish (Orleans with 2 syllables).


Do the strippers take off their bottoms during a lap dance on bourbon street in New Orleans? Not VIP?

Barely Legal mostly.

no

strip clubs are pretty tame compared to most places.

they often will go down to a tiny g string.


12 Yats of Christmas

Pre-Katrina, pre-2000s New Orleans culture comes to life in this parody of the classic “Twelve Days of Christmas.” Sadly, practically everything in this video is gone or changed drastically. Most of the businesses, if I’m not mistaken, had disappeared or were sold before my family even moved out of Louisiana in 2000.

Sorry for the mediocre audio/video quality, but the tape is well past its prime as its last recorded program—this sketch—was recorded no later than December 1995 or ’96.

The only thing missing from this is the few opening words—”On the first day of Christmas, my mawmaw gave to me a crawfish they caught…”—but I think the video makes up for it with a nice little surprise at the end.

New Orleans Locals! What is your favorite thing to do in the French Quarter?

Obviously as locals we all dont do the tourist thing in the French Quarter but wondering who has the best local ideas for things to do in the French Quarter for other LOCALS!

Browse the art galleries on Royal Street. You would be surprised what you find in there, especially the print galleries. There are some really cool and crazy prints in those. Some are very cheap, like under $15 for vintage Mardi Gras posters.
