New Orleans Saints Bye Week News

The New Orleans Saints are in the thick of things even though they have had some key injuries to this point. The New Orleans Saints have had to do without Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, Tracy Porter, Jabari Greer and Darren Sharper just to name a few.
Despite all of these and other injuries the New Orleans Saints are only ½ a game behind conference leaders Atlanta Falcons and New York Giants with a record of 6-3 going into the bye week. The New Orleans Saints are on a two game winning streak and right on the heels of the division leading Atlanta Falcons.
The New Orleans Saints are preparing to face Reggie Bush’s old coach, Pete Carroll and his new team the Seattle Seahawks.  Reggie Bush is working hard to be able to play at full strength when the New Orleans Saints face the Seahawks.
The New Orleans Saints are also hoping to get leading rusher Pierre Thomas back in time for the Seahawks game also. Thomas has missed six games with an ankle injury.
After getting off to a 4-3 start, the New Orleans Saints seem to be getting into gear in time for the key months of November and December. This is when championship teams step up. The New Orleans Saints are climbing in the stats. They are 7th in total offense in the NFL with a 369.9 yard per game average and 14th in scoring. The defense is also been impressive. The New Orleans Saints defense is only allowing 277 yards per game which ranks them 3rd in the NFL. This, like the offense, is despite key injuries.

Alexis Marceaux

New Orleans and Music are virtually synonymous.  I love music, all kinds.  I have my favorites like everybody else, but one of the things I love about New Orleans is there is music everywhere.  I knew early on that I would never be a “Star” since I have no musical talent to speak of, so it is no wonder that I am in awe of those who do.  After lunch one afternoon my husband handed me a CD on his way out to an appointment and said “A client gave me this.  It’s her daughter.  Listen to it and see if you want to catch her live performance later.  She is playing in the Quarter tonight.”  I figured I’d listen to the CD first, before deciding.

 So after seeing him out, I picked up the CD again. “Alexis Marceaux” I read.  “Pretty name”, I thought.  The picture on the cover showed an attractive young lady lying in the grass.    “Cute picture” was my next thought.  I guessed her age to be very early 20’s at best.  Still unsure this would be something I ( in my old age) could relate to, I popped the CD in and “pretty and cute” were not what I was thinking as this big amazing voice filled the room.   Wow, could I relate and I definitely had to reevaluate.  “Powerful” and “Beautiful” were just the beginning.  Of course I was going to see her perform live.  Alexis’  “Elevator Ride” had just become my new favorite song.

The revelations kept coming.  Alexis, young as she might be, was no new kid on the block.  She had played her first public venue at 7 years old and had written her first song at 13.  This young singer-songwriter is also an accomplished piano, harmonica and guitar player. “Talented.”   A New Orleans native, Alexis and her family had lost everything in Hurricane Katrina and had to start completely over.   Katrina might have taken her home, but not her dream to play music.  “Gutsy.”  Her dream to play music in New Orleans, a city she loves. “ Heart.”     
 

Check out Alexis Marceaux, the young lady with a powerful, big, beautiful voice who is also a multi-talented performer with guts and heart.  I have seen and heard “Stars” with less to recommend them.  I should have known better than to judge a book or, in this case, a CD by its cover.  Find out for yourself.   Alexis plays live venues all over the greater New Orleans area and is scheduled to perform at the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival in April.  For more about Alexis and her scheduled appearances visit her website: http://alexismarceaux.com/

Does anyone know how to make a Jester drink from Bourbon Street?

The last time we were in New Orleans, a bunch of us got Jesters (the world strongest drink) made with 190 proof grain alcohol (everclear I assume). We loved it! we all had one and had the best time! Love to make them at home, but don’t have a clue of how. Can somebody help!

That sounds like a Hand Grenade, but sold by a bar that doesn’t have permission to use the trademarked name:

It is certainly appropriate to mourn the loss of those we love, but we believe it is equally as appropriate to honor them by celebrating their lives.

Interfaith Memorial Service at St. Louis Cathedral – 1:30pm

WHERE: The Hotel Monteleone 214 Royal Street New Orleans, LA 70130 St. Louis Cathedral Jackson Square Convenient parking located at the Hotel Monteleone Garage, entrance on Bienville or at Solari’s between Bourbon and Royal on Iberville. WHY: We offer a recreation of the jazz funeral for those who wish to bury the distressing memories of Katrina as our city moves forward. This jazz funeral can be theoretical or you can toss some real Katrina era items in the coffin to bury for good. We suggest a scrap of blue tarp, a Clorox bottle, a fly swatter, an MRE or a list of excuses. Surely we can all think of a few more things.

Since 1886, the Hotel Monteleone, www.hotelmonteleone.com, has proudly stood as one of the first landmarks in the famous French Quarter. The hotel is the Quarter’s largest full-service hotel, featuring 600 comfortable, luxurious guestrooms and suites.
