Saturday (4/6): WORLD FARK PARTY III, 8PM - midnight at the Voodoo Vibe on Bourbon Street. Entry will be $50, which is only to cover the venue (with the balcony) and the open bar. Yes, I said OPEN BAR. It will be limited to Farkers only.

Being a New Orleans native I approve. Unfortunately I already have plans that week.. Bring the GF to Paris to propose to her and whatnot. Also the Louvre.

Sounds like fun Unfreakable. I have a suggesstion for other activities: A restaurant crawl for the foodies! Surely some Farkers from the area could work up a good list of the local hot spots.

There are a bunch of people looking for roomies, to help alleviate costs and such. Maybe that would make the difference for some people that want to go but can't because of costs.
Maybe there should be a thread or something with people that would be willing to split a room, and then y'all can pair up.

Actually, there will probably be a bunch of side-trips to various area restaurants, as well as little jazz and blues clubs, karaoke, things like that.

At the top where it says only farkers allowed into the party...... we can bring our spouses, right?

Unfortunately, I'm already taking a week off to visit Nashville at the end of March and April 8th off for the Indians home opener. Maybe next year...again.

Wife and I just moved to Nashville FROM New Orleans not too long ago.

The fact that I'm now here and the party is there may be the only regret I have about moving away.

That, and the food.

I'm in.
 
2013-01-30 12:48:12 PM
As another native, I MUST ask: "Why Bourbon Street?" As a service to others, I'll probably lead a side-trip or two to the Marigny, so you can see actual good bars, and not touristy crap hawked on Bourbon. Also, I'm down for a poker tournament.
 
2013-01-30 12:48:37 PM
Drew will be there, too.

Not everything has to take place on Bourbon Street, but for a lot of people who have never been there, it wouldn't make sense to go to New Orleans and then not even go there once. New Orleans is a hell of a lot more than just Bourbon Street, and I expect that the locals will be able to show noobs like me what's cool.
 
2013-01-30 12:52:12 PM
Well, I live here, so I'm in.
 
2013-01-30 12:52:20 PM
I will be there in spirit only. I'll call ahead with a CC# and sponsor at least 1 round of drinks for you guys.

Seconded. Seriously, Bourbon street is fun for about 45 minutes.

Take a side trip one afternoon down to the Bayou Barn in Jean Lafitte for a canoe trip in alligator infested waters. Tell em BtS sent you.

They'll say WTF are you talking about? but tell em anyway.

This.
I'm expecting that people that have never been to NOLA will want to see and party on the infamous Bourbon Street. It's a given, and I understand it.

That being said, I will try like hell to drag people to Frenchmen Street, to the LGD, the Marigny, and just other areas of the FQ.

well, if you have a venue set up for the event already, it doesn't really matter what street it's on.  and, it's not like the marigny is a far walk.  i assume most people are coming in from out of town, so being close to the cbd hotels is probably a bonus.  but, the bar and restaurant excursions should happen away from bourbon st, lest you create a new group of people who see only the tourist containment zone of this great city.

Obviously a stop at Cafe du Monde for Beignets...hahaha, but I don't have to tell you that.

Frenchmen Street for the music clubs.

Coop's on Decatur, but apparently the word it out about that place...I've never seen it more crowded than in the last few years. Lines to get in. Lines!

Camellia Grill...take the St. Charles Streetcar all the way Uptown. And after you stuff yourselves there, walk across the street and stuff yourselves with more food and lots o' booze at Cooter Brown's.

Obviously, you have to visit the French Market/flea market for touristy crap...it's a good place to find CDs of local musicians, though, and also local artists.

I will be staying in the Marigny.  I'm also not going to biatch about the event locations.  It's all within walking/stumbling distance.

a friend of mine does kayak tours through bayou st john (goes through city park, sometimes ends up with po-boys at liuzza's by the track), so you don't really need to take that much of a side trip.

On Thurs or Fri, I am planning a stop for lunch at my friend's restaurant in Mid-City, in the American Can Company. It's called Serendipity, and it's run by Chef Chris DeBarr (formerly of Green Goddess). Anyone that wants to join me is very welcome. The man is a genius with food.

You could just room with them. You'd have more opportunities to sneak a peek at Kyro's glorious man-boobage in the privacy of y'all's room.
 
2013-01-30 01:11:33 PM
1. Sounds like fun. It's within driving distance, so i will attend.

2. How many people normally attend these things?

3. Is there a median age or concentration of ages? Don't want to be the only 40-something guy there.

4. I say we begin now to create a pool that would be a prize to whoever finds and brings Lootie to the party. I pledge $100. Maybe Heineken will sponsor.

5. If I bring my hot, much younger girlfriend who has a habit of drinking too much and wandering off with strangers, will you all promise to leave her alone?

As far as recommendations for New Orleans Om Nom Noms go:

Drago's $$$ (My TOP TOP TOP recommendation)

2 Poydras St, New Orleans

Recommendation: The Chargrilled Oysters. Drago's was the originator of this recipe that has now gone viral across the country. Yet nobody has perfected it besides Drago's. Great seafood gumbo too.

Antoine's $$$$$

713 St. Louis Street

Recommendation: ANYTHING....but ask to sit "in the back" as the front of the restaurant is geared more towards tourists. The back half of the restaurant is decorated with Mardi Gras regallia and other authentic New Orleans historical items. It's nice.

Elizabeth's $$$

601 Gallier St. New Orleans, LA (A little out of the way)

Recommendation: Crab Cake Eggs Benedict

Camellia Grill $$

540 Chartres St, New Orleans

Recommendation: Mushroom Swiss Burger (Rare). This is just a great ole dirty burger joint. But you'd be hard pressed to find a more satisfying burger in this town.

NOLA farker here as you may know.  I'm willing to help.  At least give some ideas.  And yes, I should be able to attend most events.

Unfreakable: Hey locals: what are the must-see/must-do things when we get there? What restaurants do you recommend? What places?


it really depends on what you want and how much you feel like spending

as said everywhere, frenchman street for some music, deeper into the marigny for something different.

for some well crafted cocktails, bar tonique or pravda (or, more precisely, perestroika at pravda, they've changed management from an empty russian themed bar that had absinthe to an excellent cocktail bar that also happens to serve absinthe.  i really like the cleverness in the name that accompanied the change)

st claude st or st roch's for some dirty hipster bounce party.  (bounce is a native new orleans music that is probably the lowest form of music on earth, but is also pretty awesome.  it is impossible to dance poorly to it).  on a side note, our hipsters are infinitely better than all other hipsters.  they are usually just poor young people that build strange things and play instruments.

kajun's for karaoke.

when if comes to food...  it really depends on whether you want new food, or traditional creole or cajun fare.  there are a lot of chefs here doing some amazing things.

for the weird foodie, check out serendipity (or green goddess, if you don't mind waiting 3 hours to eat -- but, at least it's in quarter).

X1's Here: Camellia Grill...take the St. Charles Streetcar all the way Uptown. And after you stuff yourselves there, walk across the street and stuff yourselves with more food and lots o' booze at Cooter Brown's.


there's a camellia grill on chartres in the quarter. opened recently.  but a better breakfast place is coulis, bring some vodka, they'll make you an awesome bloody mary (they don't have a liquor license).

but, if you go far uptown, check out boucherie.  awesome restaurant, and very nicely priced for the quality of food.  has good beer on tap too, for a restaurant.

You could just room with them. You'd have more opportunities to sneak a peek at Kyro's glorious man-boobage in the privacy of y'all's room.


Looking in on their sexytime just wouldn't be the same if I didn't have a pane of glass between us, fogging up with my heated breath. I have a ritual, and I like to keep to it.

pute kisses like a man: well, if you have a venue set up for the event already, it doesn't really matter what street it's on. and, it's not like the marigny is a far walk. i assume most people are coming in from out of town, so being close to the cbd hotels is probably a bonus. but, the bar and restaurant excursions should happen away from bourbon st, lest you create a new group of people who see only the tourist containment zone of this great city.


Also, while there's more fun IMHO outside Bourbon and the Quarter, there aren't too many good places I can see where they'd let a bunch of people rent the space out for a weekend night.

I know of one on Frenchmen, a bunch of us had a Super Bowl party there when the Saints were in.

Neverhood9: As far as recommendations for New Orleans Om Nom Noms go:

Drago's $$$ (My TOP TOP TOP recommendation)

2 Poydras St, New Orleans

Recommendation: The Chargrilled Oysters. Drago's was the originator of this recipe that has now gone viral across the country. Yet nobody has perfected it besides Drago's. Great seafood gumbo too.

Antoine's $$$$$

713 St. Louis Street

Recommendation: ANYTHING....but ask to sit "in the back" as the front of the restaurant is geared more towards tourists. The back half of the restaurant is decorated with Mardi Gras regallia and other authentic New Orleans historical items. It's nice.

Elizabeth's $$$

601 Gallier St. New Orleans, LA (A little out of the way)

Recommendation: Crab Cake Eggs Benedict

Camellia Grill $$

540 Chartres St, New Orleans

Recommendation: Mushroom Swiss Burger (Rare). This is just a great ole dirty burger joint. But you'd be hard pressed to find a more satisfying burger in this town.


Yo Mama's $

St. Peter's by Bourbon

Requirement: Peanut Butter Bacon Burger

I know there's a new one, but I figured the ppl that have never been to NOLA might be interested in a ride on the Streetcar, plus the sightseeing along St. Charles Ave.

I love The Coffee Pot for breakfast, and also The Ruby Slipper.

The last time I was there, it was raining and I finished my (long) lunch with a French Press pot of Dark Roast Mello Joy coffee, watched the rain...best afternoon I've had in a long while.

If you want something to do earlier in the day before partying, I'd recommend a swamp tour.  Yeah, most tours down here are terribly cheesy.  I recommend against pretty much all of them, except the swamp tours.  Its the only chance you'll get to visit the middle of the bayou.  Like deep, deep into the bayou.

Also, RE: Burbon Street.  Shilling for a friend who runs part of this, but every Friday at Irvin Mayfield's Jazz Playhouse there's a Burlesque Ballroom show at midnight.

Its on Burbon, but its a totally classy joint in a classy hotel.

And its free.  Drinks are a tad bit expensive, but its totally worth it.

If you want to do it, get there early.  Seats can fill quickly.  Actually there's a band that plays before it.  I generally catch the end of that, and nab seats as people leave that show (again, all free so you can come and go.)

I'm a local too - transplanted to NOLA 10 years ago. I'm married, I don't drink and I have enough T-Shirts so I don't spend much time on Bourbon St.

Frenchman St is where the music is and there are some pretty well reviewed restaurants there too although I haven't been to them personally. There may also be a couple of food trucks on Frenchman.

Le Peniche is a quiet neighborhood restaurant a couple of blocks away from the Frenchman St mayhem and open 24 hours. They have good food, full bar and hardly ever a wait. Great late night nosh!

I really enjoy Kajun's Pub on St Claude for people watching - my wife went to the karaoke and had a blast! They had really good live Blues there this past Sunday night, really fun place. They still allow smoking which is about the only thing I don't like.

Fiorella's is about the only restaurant in The Quarter that we go to regularly. They lost their mojo for a while after Katrina but had the good sense to close down, retool and re-open and their fried chicken and Italian food is back to its former glory.

Elizabeth's in The Bywater used to be a breakfast favorite but after 3 or 4 bad experiences we gave up on them. It's been over a year since I've been there so they may be good again but I'm waiting for someone else to do that research.

I love BBQ but was never as big a fan of The Joint as lots of other people, They moved recently but they're still in The Bywater. If you're willing to travel uptown (streetcar) Squeal BBQ on Oak St. is where I go when I don't take the time to smoke my own meat. It's right up the street from Jacques-Imo's which is a loud and crowded dinner only restaurant with some great food and funky atmosphere. The Maple Leaf Bar is also on Oak and has great live local music every night.

A current favorite up by the Lakefront is Sassafras. REALLY good Soul/Comfort food. It's a small, quiet restaurant located in a small grocery store plaza. Strange location but great service and food.

A great reference for New Orleans area restaurants is NOMenu.com. It's compiled by local food critic Tom Fitzmorris who can be a little ... opinionated, but it's a comprehensive list that's up to date and useful for names, addresses,descriptions and phone numbers.

The Bourbon Pub...aka the main gay club


I'm a to each his own person, so totally not knocking you.  Just be aware the Bourbon Pub is LOUD as hell.  I have two lesbian friends for whom that is their hangout, so I'm there often enough.  I personally hate loud bars with blaring music, but I suck it up because they're my friends.

Anyway... gay or straight (I'm straight)... it is always a wild time at the Bourbon Pub.  I recommend at least poking in (no pun intended, or maybe it is) for a few minutes.

Also, that Pub is in the sorta unofficial gay district of Bourbon, which is a lot more fun than the rest... as the over-served frat boys don't venture there as much.

New Olreans is also one of- if not the- gay friendliest cities in America.

Nope, as I mentioned before I don't recommend it any more.  Service went downhill, food- while the menu is technically the same and potentially awesome- can be spotty now in terms of quality.

Also, there are new brunch options in the Bywater.  I'll get a list.  I don't do brunch, so I forgot who's the best now.  My wife would know.

Yes, Satsuma is awesome too.  Most down here agree its the best brunch this side of Canal.

And the Bacchanal upstairs is going to be awesome.  I've been up there many times during the construction.

Protip for Bacchanal... no idea if the upstairs area will alleviate this, but I don't recommend going on Sunday during the nice weather months (April is one of them of course).  You may not find a seat.

Friday and Saturday are fine.  I recommend getting there around 6-7 though to be safe.

Its gotten popular.  Not in a bad way, but there's a reality to their outdoor capacity.

if you want to check out something a little different, there's the 12 mile limit.  it's in mid-city.  close to finn mccools.  they make pretty good cocktails and have a good selection of booze, all the while they charge dive bar prices.  plus, there's a guy there from texas that does some pretty good barbecue.

bartenders who visit new orleans all seem to love 12 mile limit like it was something special.  i usually go there for football games, because nobody who goes here likes football, so i get a couch to myself and a huge projection screen to watch and dominion over what game to watch.

Actually, there will probably be a bunch of side-trips to various area restaurants, as well as little jazz and blues clubs, karaoke, things like that.

Yeah man, please do. Bourbon Street sucks. Keep our nice innocent farkers them away from that miserable cesspool of a trap. Marigny, Uptown, Mid City, Oak Street--that's where it's at. Bourbon street is nice if you like paying 5 dollars for a stale 12 oz bud light, or if you like shady people approaching you to sell fake party favors.

2013-01-30 03:02:23 PM

Unfreakable: Hey locals: what are the must-see/must-do things when we get there? What restaurants do you recommend? What places?


A lot of this depends on your transportation, but some must-see stuff on your visit should include some of each of the following:

For music, head uptown, by taxi or the St. Charles street car line and head to Oak street to go to the Maple Leaf.  If Rebirth Brass Band is playing, you MUST go.  That said, when I would go, they usually played Tuesday nights.  If nothing else, hang out at the Maple Leaf and tie one on while waiting for your table at Jaques-Imo's Cafe, one of the best restaurants in the city.  The hostesses will come get you, and you may end up getting blotto with Jacques himself.  Another New Orleans music institution is Tipitina's, uptown on Tchoupitoulas Street.

Food:  Cochon in the Warehouse District for some cajun food that is mind-blowing.  They also opened a sandwich shop out back called Butcher, and it is mind-blowing.  Every bit of meat they serve is cured on site.  Want a po'boy?  Make your way to Domelise's po'boy shop uptown on Annunciation Street.  Parkway Tavern reportedly has the best hot roast beef.  Kill a hangover with a big bowl of pho at Pho Tau Bay on the Westbank.  A couple of other uptown gems are the recently opened Restaurant Patois and Boucherie, which specializes in small plates.

The WWII Museum is a must for anyone interested in history.  Also, you can grab a bite to eat at John Besh's The American Sector.  The bar, as well as the Stagedoor Canteen, offer some awesome retro cocktails.  The Museum is parked in the warehouse district and there are lots of art galleries in that neighborhood, as well as a stellar Spanish seafood restaurant called Rio Mar, and an Argentinean-style steak house called La Boca.  You'll need reservations for the latter.

Basically, get out of the Quarter for a bit if you can.  The Quarter is fun, and there's nothing wrong with that, but get out and about uptown if you can.  Hop on the St. Charles Streetcar and take the line to Riverbend and get off and grab some lunch and some beers at Cooter Brown's.  For my money, they have some of the best raw oysters in the city when the oyster bar is running.  Take a trip up Magazine street and back.  Go bowling at Rock 'n Bowl, which is basically a live music venue that adds booze, food, and a fully functioning bowling alley.

WildManBand: Yeah man, please do. Bourbon Street sucks. Keep our nice innocent farkers them away from that miserable cesspool of a trap. Marigny, Uptown, Mid City, Oak Street--that's where it's at. Bourbon street is nice if you like paying 5 dollars for a stale 12 oz bud light, or if you like shady people approaching you to sell fake party favors.


Well, Bourbon is a good place to start everything.  Firstly, everyone should see that mess at least once in their life.

As for renting out a space... it doesn't matter.  You're shielded from the mess and its just us farkers.

Not trying to be "that annoying local guy". For the Pub Crawl... just MHO here, I'd start on Bourbon for a short while, and at least take it down to Frenchmen via lower Decatur.  You'll have a much better time.

90% of Bourbon Street bars not in the gay secton are really all the same.  On Frenchmen, and into the Marigny you're going to find real good music, better bar food, and more unique atmosphere.

All in all, its no big deal... all of this is within walking distance.

Maybe its because in my older age now I hate driving in general.

This isn't so much as being an annoying local as much as it is being sensible that Bourbon isn't everyone's idea of a good time, especially people who have been there before. Frenchman is fantastic, I did Halloween on Frenchman the last few years and thoroughly enjoyed myself.

Luke is great.  And some of the oysters they get from the Pacific Northwest on occasion are really good, and a bit of a change of pace.  Though, I still think our Gulf oysters are the best.

i feel the same way...  biking is actually my preferred method these days.  i just moved to the lgd, work in the cbd, and (I ran out of acronyms), but i can get anywhere faster by bike than someone with a car... and i'm a really shiatty bike rider.  thank god for all these bike lanes.

but, i am a new orleans rapid transit rider.  this city is actually not that hard to get around by bus and street car.  hopefully by then the smartphone real time tracking info will be working (it's still in beta -- i think the superbowl coming here is putting a lot of pressure on norta to straighten everything out... though, I can attest, it was not working today).  when it works, taking public transportation in this city is extremely pleasant.  otherwise, there can be some delays.

but, for a tourist's purposes, the street car can take you to a lot of places, and usually if there's a walk, like to the garden district, it's a beautiful walk, and you just might find a cemetery to check out (like lafayette cemetery).

The Bourbon Pub...aka the main gay club

I'm a to each his own person, so totally not knocking you.  Just be aware the Bourbon Pub is LOUD as hell.  I have two lesbian friends for whom that is their hangout, so I'm there often enough.  I personally hate loud bars with blaring music, but I suck it up because they're my friends.

Anyway... gay or straight (I'm straight)... it is always a wild time at the Bourbon Pub.  I recommend at least poking in (no pun intended, or maybe it is) for a few minutes.

Also, that Pub is in the sorta unofficial gay district of Bourbon, which is a lot more fun than the rest... as the over-served frat boys don't venture there as much.

New Olreans is also one of- if not the- gay friendliest cities in America.


Current resident of Nola and I was quite surprised how gay friendly this town is. I was also surprised at just how small this place is, biggest little town ever. My wife wouldn't date the local girls here because everyone knows everyone and dated at some point lol

i thought the oysters they have on happy hour are gulf oysters...  i know they also offer foreign oysters.  i guess i haven't checked, last time i hit up the happy hour was last mardi gras.

of course, their website doesn't mention the happy hour deal, but on their menu, they offer gulf oysters.  they also offer some foreigners  but those are for 'market price' which inevitably means they won't show up on a happy hour price.  and someone somewhere on the internet says they're from p&j.

Tin Roof in Red Stick. Not at all bad. Usually stock up on it before I have to visit my in-laws in Zachary. F-i-L is a preacher and doesn't permit any alcohol under his roof.

Royal Street Inn rooms are above the R-Bar, they give you a drink token when you check in!  I like it because it feels more like an apartment.  I've been to New Orleans many times and Marigny is my favorite neighborhood.

I really wanted to stay in the Marigny Guest House where they give you half a shotgun shack.

I am going to start dieting right now because I know I will gain at least five pounds.

2013-01-30 06:16:19 PM

MerelyFoolish: 1. Sounds like fun. It's within driving distance, so i will attend.
2. How many people normally attend these things?
3. Is there a median age or concentration of ages? Don't want to be the only 40-something guy there.
4. I say we begin now to create a pool that would be a prize to whoever finds and brings Lootie to the party. I pledge $100. Maybe Heineken will sponsor.
5. If I bring my hot, much younger girlfriend who has a habit of drinking too much and wandering off with strangers, will you all promise to leave her alone?


Since no one else has answered yet, I'll take a crack at these:
1. Driving distance really depends on time and money. I'll be driving and I live at the other end of Texas.
2. About 100 last year. Feel free to go all super-spy photo analyst on my pics from last year which you can find a link to elsewhere in this thread.
3. No. As much as I could estimate, the age distribution seems to be flat from the age of majority to retirement.
4. Excellent idea. I'll pledge $5 for this right now. (Payable upon Lootie's and my arrival.)
5. We would never promise such a thing. Leaving a young, attractive, inebriated young lady all alone in a strange city to be preyed upon grifters, lechers, and otherwise trolls is something we would never do. I can assure you that if she should happen to drink too much and wander off (and do the sort of coquettish things that grown men who watch too much anime dream about about would never actually take advantage of), plenty of your fellow Farkers and Farkettes would be there to guide her back to the convention hotel.

Any Philly/Baltimore area farkers looking to carpool? And/or anyone looking to share a room? I put my clothes in a hamper, my trash in the can, and dishes in the sink.

EIP if maybe interested.

I will bite, Frenchman and the Marigny are good places, a little ageing hipsterish as the years pass on, but still the most normal place to party in the city.

Food.  Uptown I would hit Le Crepe Nanou, french wood, and amazing wine selection, and inexpensive and fun.

The Trolley Stop is my go to drunk food place. Since I can get gumbo and a etoufee omelette and 3 am.

And of course Lucky Dogs or if your feeling the asian creole vibe, a cup of Ya Ka Mein Noodles.

My favorite dive bars were always the Saturn and Snake and Jakes.

And if I must go to a bar on bourbon street it is either tropical isle or The Steak Pit with their huge ass beers.

Goddammit. I just moved from Minneapolis to Los Angeles. And since Vegas is only a 4-hour car trip, I was planning to make it this year. Then the whole circus up and moves to New Orleans?!? Thanks a LOT.

Look, if I smell bad, then just say so.

Lots of great food and music at French Quarter Fest, but just be aware... its gotten very popular, and can be jam packed.  That doesn't bother everyone, so maybe that's cool with you.  I can't do it anymore, personally.  Just an FYI.

Unfreakable: ertai_lapis: As another native, I MUST ask: "Why Bourbon Street?" As a service to others, I'll probably lead a side-trip or two to the Marigny, so you can see actual good bars, and not touristy crap hawked on Bourbon. Also, I'm down for a poker tournament.

Not everything has to take place on Bourbon Street, but for a lot of people who have never been there, it wouldn't make sense to go to New Orleans and then not even go there once. New Orleans is a hell of a lot more than just Bourbon Street, and I expect that the locals will be able to show noobs like me what's cool.


Indeed. Might I suggest Frenchmen St. in the Marigny? The Spotted Cat and Three Muses and such are pretty cool. I'm not into Bourbon. Also, Marie's (much further) in the Marigny makes the...Best. Bloody. Marys. Ever.

Also, something you guys can do to get you out of the FQ...

http://confederacyofcruisers.com/new-orleanbicycle-tours

 I think it is a great way to see the Marigny and Bywater. The name is, of course, a homage to Confederacy of Dunces.

Antoine's in the FQ does very traditional fare and has a $20.13 lunch special and a really interesting atmosphere.

Go to Brocato's on Carrollton for ice cream and pastries, if you like that. It is really good.

The Irish House on St. Charles is very cool if you like the Irish thing.

The Bourbon House is a good place to go to the bar and get a beer and raw oysters. Great service and much less of a wait than Acme next door.

Do Cafe du Monde for beginets, of course. Crossaint d'Or on Ursullines in the FQ is very nice for breakfast pastries and coffee.

/Check out Yelp and Trip Advisor for stuff.
//Don't think I'll be there for this but am willing to help out with suggestions.

This world fark party also begs the question:

Will Bevets appear and prove to FARK that he is real and not a program? If so, how do we avoid a "I am Spartacus!" like situation?

Since I've only seen Bevets post in a non-evolution thread once, my theory is that he's the alt identity of another farker, but whom?

It's the ultimate thought experiment.

Just so everyone is aware, there are two big events happening over that weekend: American Chemical Society conference and NCAA Women's Final Four. So, don't be surprised if it is a little more "touristy" than normal. And, be wary of long lines for restaurants in the CBD and French Quarter.

It is definitely worth the wait to stand in line at Mother's on Poydras for breakfast.
Or lunch.

Word of warning about The Country Club (and things may have changed, I haven't been in 2+ years).  The wife and I ate there 5 times, through multiple chefs.  The food was either horrible or downright dangerous (wife's chicken wasn't cooked through).  And its supposed to be- and priced to be- pretty fine cuisine.

The pool area is georgous.  But after a lot of experience, albiet in the past, I'd prepare to eat somewhere else.  Nice thing is there are places to eat within walking distance of The Country Club.
 
2013-03-01 01:34:14 PM

AlwaysRightBoy: Sounds like fun Unfreakable. I have a suggesstion for other activities: A restaurant crawl for the foodies! Surely some Farkers from the area could work up a good list of the local hot spots.

/wish I could go


Your post reminded me about an email I sent to a fellow Farker a couple of years ago who was coming to New Orleans & was looking for bar/restaurant advice...still had in in my sent folder, so here it is:

-------------------------------------------------

When you're in the Quarter, there are some great places that are tourist-y, but still great.  Acme Oyster House on Bienville is a favorite.. Mother's Restaurant on Poydras not far outside the quarter, but worth a cab ride.  (Get the 'debris' roast beef po-boy.)   Antoine's on St. Louis is fantastic.  Port of Call on Esplanade (north side of Quarter) has the best burgers in town.  Pat O Brien's is a tourist mecca, but worth at least one trip.  Lafitte's Blacksmith Shop on Bourbon is the oldest bar in America.

Outside the Quarter: If you really want to impress your g/friend (and are ready to spend a lot,) Commander's Palace is a must. (Not sure if they still require a jacket, it's been a while.)
- Lakeview Harbor on Harrison  - great seafood. 
- Lucy's on Tchoupitoulas - Great bar in Warehouse district, mediocre food, great happy hour, great local scene.
-  Drago's on Poydras (in the Riverside Hilton) - A lot of tourists there, b/c it's in the Hilton, but the locals love it.. best oysters in the city.  (They invented grilled/char-broiled oysters.) 
-  Mike's on the avenue (St. Charles Avenue) - Oyster burrito?? Yea. 
-  Lola's on Esplanade is one of our favorites - Spanish cuisine. Intimate, small place. (Long wait for a table, bring a bottle of wine.)
- Cooter Brown's - St. Charles at Carrolton - great neighborhood sports bar/grill (and four blocks from my house.)   On the streetcar line, a good 20 minute+ ride from the Quarter.  40 beers on draft.  (3/1/13 update - The streetcar line in this area is under repair, will need to take a cab or drive. Too far to walk from Quarter.)
- Mid-City Yacht Club, S. St. Patrick St - great bar.  (Not actually a yacht club.. was flooded post-Katrina, hence the name.)
- The Columns Hotel on St. Charles - It's a mansion converted into a hotel. The downstairs bar is fantastic.. if you can get a table on the front porch, the people-watching on St. Charles is amazing.
- Henry's Bar on Magazine -  Great neighborhood bar.  Large drinks.
- Kingpin Bar on Lyons street - great neighborhood bar.
- Wine Institute of New Orleans (W.I.N.O), if you like wine, on Tchoupitoulas Street - $35 for 8 tastings. 
- The Bulldog on Magazine - neighborhood Uptown bar, 50+ beers on tap
 
That's a bunch off the top of my head.  Be especially careful in the Quarter, don't go anywhere alone, and don't drink anything that comes with a small plastic hand grenade on top of the ice. re: the grenade... A couple of bars along Bourbon street make big tropical drinks with Everclear, and put a signature plastic grenade on top...  I've known more than one person that suffered a bad blackout from drinking a couple/three of these in a row. 
------
Hey, on the previous list, I forgot to mention Cafe du Monde.. It's a famous coffee place on the south side of the Quarter by the river.  Has been in operation 24/7 since 1862, except for a few weeks after Katrina.  Serves thick coffee & beignets, a deep-fried pastry that's smothered in powdered sugar.  Favorite of tourists & locals alike.

Also in the quarter:  Central Grocery on Decatur...has been in operation since about 1905. Invented the muffuletta sandwich.  (I think they're only open for lunch, maybe till 2PM.)

By the way, in case you've never been to New Orleans... There's actually not a lot of major crime in the Quarter, b/c of all the cops (a lot of them plainclothes.)  Mostly the occasional pickpocket/purse snatcher.  Most thugs know that if they try something in the tourist areas, they might "accidentally fall down face-first" 5 or 6 times if they're caught & arrested. 

Some main "rules" in the Quarter:

- Don't talk back to the cops, ever.  If you see a cop on a horse, don't touch the horse...& Don't take a picture of it/them up close without asking first.
- Women can show their tits, generally, on Bourbon street.. but not anywhere else...And if a guy shows his dick *anywhere,* he'll go to jail.
- You can take drinks out to the street from a bar, but cops will stop you if you are on the street with a glass bottle. The bar workers  won't warn you about this. 
- If you're driving in, or using a rental, pay very close attention to the parking signs..which can be confusing and conflicting at best.  Usually a better ideal to park in a public or hotel garage rather than park on the street.
- Try not to let anyone in your group go anywhere by themselves.  That's when we usually find people turning up as headlines on Fark

As a former manager at Pat O Brians, only drink a Hurricane if you ask a bartender to make it from scratch in front of you.  Otherwise it comes out of a big giant tank, and sometimes river rats generally take a dip in it.

The Harbor is a great bar, and has been for years.

Traditional dive bars are the Saturn Bar and Snake and Jakes.

My fav bar for years has been the Mayfair Lounge uptown.

2013-03-01 02:16:23 PM

vicejay: Wine Institute of New Orleans (W.I.N.O), if you like wine, on Tchoupitoulas Street - $35 for 8 tastings.


Never been there, but I'll throw out another idea.  Bacchanal in the Bywater (600 Poland) has a *free* wine tasting every Saturday.  3-6.  Everyone gets 4-6 tasting-sized glasses.  And if you're nice they'll let you try a few again.

With a live band, and a full menu all day.  (The food, of course isn't free... but its rather inexpensive for what you get.)

And they have very affordable bottles of wine, craft beer, and a full bar*

*The bar is a craft-cocktail type thing that is a tad expensive right now.  I think they're trying to make that more affordable.

Gather up 3-4 people and your cab ride from the Quarter is gonna be like $4-$5 each after you split it.  If that.

Not at all trying to knock vicejay's suggestion... just saying if you're into wine (even a little bit, they're not pretentious)... its a great, inexpensive way to waste away a Saturday.  And most of the people who come are from the neighborhood, and we're all friendly.  Weird.  But friendly.

They'll say WTF are you talking about? but tell em anyway.

a friend of mine does kayak tours through bayou st john (goes through city park, sometimes ends up with po-boys at liuzza's by the track), so you don't really need to take that much of a side trip.


so who is it that does the tours?

MerelyFoolish: 1. Sounds like fun. It's within driving distance, so i will attend.

2. How many people normally attend these things?

3. Is there a median age or concentration of ages? Don't want to be the only 40-something guy there.

4. I say we begin now to create a pool that would be a prize to whoever finds and brings Lootie to the party. I pledge $100. Maybe Heineken will sponsor.

5. If I bring my hot, much younger girlfriend who has a habit of drinking too much and wandering off with strangers, will you all promise to leave her alone?

Awesome food.  They will have an upstairs bar with awesome cocktails by April.  (Actually, the upstairs planned opening is this weekend, for all you NOLA farkers who are looking for something new.  I'd call ahead, because as with all construction... there have been delays.)

Here's my contribution as a dude who lives here. I haven't read the entire thread, and this is, by no means, an exhaustive guide of things to do while you're here.

To get around town
The streetcar is $1.25, cash, each time you ride, unless you get a transfer for $0.25 and use it within an hour or two. It's the best way to get around between Uptown and the French Quarter. Parking in the Quarter is $25/day, so I recommend parking between Poydras and Canal in a surface lot for $5.

Okay, here's a list of things to do, broken down by area of the city, and time of day. It is, by no means, exhaustive, but it's a start.

French Quarter
Morning
: Grab breakfast wherever you like. Seriously. There isn't a whole lot of bad food, as long as you avoid the all-night pizza/gyro places. Bourbon doesn't really start waking up until mid-afternoon, so take this time to see the rest of the quarter. Walk to Jackson Square, have a beignet at Cafe du Monde, and see the art galleries and shops in the area. Visit the French Market, which is a large open air flea market on the other side of Cafe du Monde. You can haggle prices at that market, and it's encouraged. Take a walking tour if you like. Camelia Grille opened a FQ location, and that's a killer breakfast. The Uptown location is a huge tourist and locals destination, but the FQ one isn't nuts yet.

Afternoon: This is a good time to hit the pool at your hotel if it has one, and to recharge for the evening. Take a nap, and relax. You will need your energy, because you won't be leaving the clubs on Bourbon before 3 or 4 am. Seriously. Bourbon never closes, but it slows down a little after 3 am.

Anyhow, as to what to do in the Quarter at that time: shop, primarily, or listen to any of the bands playing in the bars on Bourbon. Eat as you like. I recommend a lunch at Galatoire's, The Alpine, or Bayonna. If you want a muffaletta, GO TO CENTRAL GROCERY ONLY. I can't stress that enough.

Evening: Get your grub on. Bayonna is a fine restaurant, as is Arnaud's. R'Evolution just opened, and it's had rave reviews. Galatoire's, again, is quite good. If you're looking for something less pricey, head to one of the bars on Bourbon that serves food. Their food will be okay, but not holy crap awesome.

Late night: You're going to spend every late night in this area, most likely, unless you venture to Frenchmen Street or Oak Street for live music. Just walk up and down the blocks and find what strikes you. There are literally bars every few feet on Bourbon, so if you don't like one, head to the next one. You can travel with your drinks, so it's no big deal. If you want to live a little, head off Bourbon to Royal (one block over) and check out some of the bars there. Also, take a look for Harry's Corner. It's a cash only locals bar, but they won't like you if you come in and get all brotastic.

Magazine Street (Uptown/Lower Garden/Irish Channel Neighborhoods)
Daytime: This is an area with a ton of shops and restaurants. It's a good place to spend an afternoon kicking back at a bar or at a table, drinking and watching hot women walk by. To get there, you can take the streetcar from the Quarter up St. Charles, then get off at 3rd Street or so and walk 5-6 blocks over to Magazine. Walk up Magazine towards 8th and 9th to find cool bars, restaurants, and a nice cigar shop called the Mayan Import Company (at ~7th and Magazine). Sucre is a sweets shop with liquor-laden gelato shakes that are really good. The Rum House has awesome oddball tacos (like scallops or brisket or pulled pork or jerk chicken) and good booze. Tracy's is the locals bar there, and they have decent food and cheap drinks. That's at 3rd and Magazine. Just down the block from Tracy's on 3rd, toward Constance, is a place called Parasol's that has killer po boys and other food. Magazine Street Po Boy Shop is really good, too, and they're at First and Magazine.

In this area are also some incredible homes, and a couple of cool cemeteries. You can't miss them, and it's worth it to walk/drive around and see these things.

Afternoon/Evening: Best food in this area is Commander's Palace, one of the top 5 restaurants in the country. You must wear slacks and a collared shirt, and the food is divine. If you go, get reservations now, and, for love of God, go at lunch, not dinner. They have a three course lunch for $20-25 that includes $0.25 martinis on weekdays. Do it.  YOU WILL NOT REGRET THIS

St. Charles Avenue (Uptown - it's a LONG street)
Morning: For breakfast, you can get on the streetcar and ride it as far as it will take you and go to Camelia Grill for a true tourist breakfast. Great food, just lines.

Daytime: At the downtown end of St. Charles Avenue are a series of decent bars: Avenue Pub, Lucky's, and The Irish House are probably the best of the bunch. In the middle, I'd head to The Columns Hotel, which has an awesome bar and a decent restaurant, and is a really cool old building. Their patio is a nice place to sit and watch hot girls jogging on the tracks of the streetcar. At the far uptown end, Cooter Brown's is AWESOME (this is where the Fark party is). Cooter's has 400+ beers, a full menu of bar food which is tits, and an oyster bar. Cooter's is true NOLA locals living, and it just kicks ass. You have Tulane and Loyola students in there, plus locals from attorneys to construction guys. It's a sports bar and dirty and wonderful. It's pretty big, too.

Evening: For fine dining near downtown, look to Delmonico's. For fine dining in the middle, there isn't much. For fine dining way uptown, there are a slew of restaurants at the far uptown end near Cooter Brown's. Nothing really wild along this street, but all the daytime places are good in the evening, too, if you want a kick back night just smoking cigars. Speaking of smoking cigars, there is a great cigar bar on Tchoupitoulas, way Uptown (take a cab), that has live music every night after 9, and a taco truck that parks outside. They have sofas and a really, really, really laid back vibe. The place is called Dos Jefes, and it's a phenomenal spot. Their humidor isn't too great, but the atmosphere is.

Oak Street (Way, way Uptown)
This street is about 15 blocks long, and is lined with shops and restaurants. More of a locals' shopping and dining area, but out-of-towners still love the street. Take a cab or a car to get there. Go to the corner of Carrollton and Oak and you can just walk in.

Morning: Breakfast at Oak Street Cafe. Their shrimp and grits are mindblowingly good. I'm not kidding - they will change your life. Don't get a crawfish meal there, though. Not that great. Everything else on their menu is pretty good. Well worth the trip with a small group of guys.

Afternoon: Lots of shops. Not too many bars. Not much to do.

Evening: Jaques Imo's is already on your list. Great place. Order stuff that is traditional NOLA food though. They don't always do great on their experimental stuff. I recommend their blackened fish, and their deep fried oysters are really good. Squeal BBQ isn't bad, either, and it's right across the way. GET RESERVATIONS AT JAQUES IMO'S OR  YOU'RE farkED. Note that Jaques Imo's is totally casual, too.

Night: Right next door to Jaques Imo's is a place called the Maple Leaf. This is a fantastic live music venue that has about a $10 cover. Their bands are usually really good, and it's a good place to chill for a couple hours, listen to some music, and drink. Drinks are relatively inexpensive compared tot he rest of the country, but kind of expensive for here (unless you're drinking light beer, which is dirt cheap).

Frenchmen Street (Marigny - other side of the French Quarter - nighttime only)
At the end of the French Market, you run into the old US Mint building. On the other side of that building is the beginning of Frenchmen Street. This is the live music heart of the city. There are 6-10 clubs that will have their doors open after the sun goes down, with live music coming from everywhere. There will likely be a brass band on the street just playing. There will be hippies playing guitar, and old men looking for money. It's a wonderful, wonderful place, and one of my favorite places in the entire country. The Spotted Cat Club will have blues-type music and no cover, and they only take cash. That's my favorite place. It's stark - a bar, some benches, some stools, and a stage. Snug Harbor is a larger venue that usually has a cover, and decent bands.

Just walk up and down the street and drink it in. That street is just pure passion.

 That's my short list of things to do while you're here. Enjoy.

Don't forget: St. Charles, Carrollton and Claiborne all intersect each other at right angles.  Towards the river and towards the lake are opposite directions, except when they're the same direction.  Uptown is closer to downtown than Mid-City is. And you go east on the CCC to get to the West Bank.

The more you eat the more you fart: Come for the legenday food....stay for the smell of stale piss that permeates everything.


It's an unfortunate fact of life that the best food in the world is normally found in the smelliest cities. New Orleans is no exception.  Likewise Paris.  In Naples, there are these things called fumaroles dotting the hillsides, spewing rotten-egg smelling sulfur dioxide into the air.  Garbage piles up on the streets because the garbagemen are perpetually on strike. Eventually the prostitutes set fire to the mountains of garbage, mostly as a form of advertisement.  It literally looks and smells like hell. However, if you walk into almost any restaurant in the Santa Lucia district, Port Alba, on the Via Duomo, the Piazza Garibaldi...anywhere, really...you are suddenly in heaven.

/restaurants have this thing called air conditioning, you know
 
2013-03-07 07:17:39 PM
Protip: You can buy an all-day pass for the streetcar, unlimited use, for 5 bucks. 3-day pass is $12, and 5-day pass is $20. Exact change...however, the prices change (sometimes an all-day pass is just $3!). Just tell the conductor you want an all-day pass and he'll tell you how much it is.

Let's be honest here. The only reason there is a smell like that is because of tourists on Bourbon. There is about a six block stretch of one street that stinks here. Here's my recreation of the typical tourist:

Daytime: Oh, wow! This is a beautiful city! Too bad it smells like vomit and piss! They should clean this place up!
Nighttime: *hand grenade* *hurricane* *HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORK!* *whiz*
 
2013-03-09 10:15:52 AM

So, who wants to get together for dinner Friday or lunch Saturday for some fine dining? I'd say dinner Saturday would be an option too, but with the open bar, I'd rather have something more greasy and alcohol-absorbing in my tummy ahead of that. :D

Anyway, I don't like going out to dinner alone, so I need a partner in crime for this adventure.

a friend of mine does kayak tours through bayou st john (goes through city park, sometimes ends up with po-boys at liuzza's by the track), so you don't really need to take that much of a side trip.

so who is it that does the tours?

Check on airbnb for cheap accommodations. I stayed at a house in Bywater for something like $25 a night back in December. Most nights I didn't get closer to the Bourbon Street than Frenchmen Street. There are plenty of easy going places outside of the French Quarter to have a good time.

Sweet thanks.  This is my first fark party so i'm wondering if we just show up for these events or do we need to sign up somewhere first?
 
2013-03-26 09:48:21 PM
The Official ones...Sat night on Bourbon and Friday night at The Bricks, you just show up.
The Frenchmen Street Pub Crawl, just show up...same with Freret Street.....
The only one I really need to know is how many people will be joining us for lunch on Thursday at Serendipity, so I can let Chef Chris know what to expect.

As far as other stuff going on that people are doing, just ask around and join in whatever sounds good to you.
 
2013-03-26 09:51:24 PM
I'd also like to comment, for anyone reading Unfreakable's original post up top, that those plans have changed, so pay attention to the thread. The Sat gig is still correct, but Thurs and Fri have changed (as evidenced by my previous posts).

Also, if you're on Twitter, follow the hashtag tweets for information, as well.

Since there's an open bar, I assume there's an entry fee?  Any idea what that is?

And I assume this is still on:

"Saturday (4/6) will be the party at the Voodoo Vibe on Bourbon Street. Entry will be $50, which is only to cover the venue (with the balcony) and the open bar. It will be limited to Farkers only."

Finally managed to update this Fark Party thing, it's been bugging me all afternoon.

So, here are the updates:

1) The Hilton is full. There may still be rooms available at the Garden Avenue hotel (http://avenuegardenhotel.com) with the code FARK, but you have to call them.

2) The main event is Saturday night at the Voodoo Vibe. It's limited to Farkers and our guests, and will be $50 per person, which just which covers the open bar and the venue itself, which includes a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street.

3) We also have a Thursday night pub crawl planned, a Friday afternoon activity, and also a Friday night party at The Bricks. Huffington Post is sponsoring that one by getting us the location (and somehow convinced New Orleans Rum to give free drinks to Farkers--a mistake no sane person makes twice)

Calories burned for 8 solid hours of walking is no match for free beer, rum drinks, and beignets. No match.

Unfreakable: Finally managed to update this Fark Party thing, it's been bugging me all afternoon.

So, here are the updates:

1) The Hilton is full. There may still be rooms available at the Garden Avenue hotel (http://avenuegardenhotel.com) with the code FARK, but you have to call them.

2) The main event is Saturday night at the Voodoo Vibe. It's limited to Farkers and our guests, and will be $50 per person, which just which covers the open bar and the venue itself, which includes a balcony overlooking Bourbon Street.

3) We also have a Thursday night pub crawl planned, a Friday afternoon activity, and also a Friday night party at The Bricks. Huffington Post is sponsoring that one by getting us the location (and somehow convinced New Orleans Rum to give free drinks to Farkers--a mistake no sane person makes twice)


2 nights of open bar? Oh my. I think it's time to finally use my flight privileges from working for an airline.... Who needs a roomie?!
 
2013-03-29 07:21:24 PM
Well shiat, I'll be in Tallahassee. Aircraft annual inspection time.

Never been to a Fark party of any sort, but my hometown deserves a good group of people. I put together the following guide for other out-of-town visitors earlier this year. Feel free to use, lose, combine with other suggestions, mix, match, shake, stir, and puke up anything you don't like.

Restaurant Recommendations, by Type

(You'll notice there aren't many downtown places here. Personal preference)

Seafood:

·Deanie's in Bucktown: a taxi ride into Metairie, but well worth it. Perfect, home-style seafood in a relaxed atmosphere. The Crawfish Quartet is legendary.

·ACME Oyster House: either downtown or in Metairie (on Veteran's). Larger seafood joint, but some of the best oysters in the city (get a dozen chargrilled as an appetizer). Also make great seafood platters, burgers, etc. Louder and busier than Deanie's.

·Drago's: best oysters in the city. You'll definitely pay for it, though.

Creole/Cajun Food:

·Joey K's on Magazine: fun, small corner restaurant. Great food at fair prices. Also in a neat area of town with other restaurants/evening locations to explore.

·Jacques-Imo's Café on Oak: uptown location you can take the St. Charles Streetcar line to. Truly unique restaurant. Be prepared to wait for a table. Fancy, authentic creole food. Pricey, but worth it.

Po-Boys:

·Domilise's Po-Boy and Bar on Annunciation St. (uptown, take taxi). Small corner po-boy store and bar. Been open forever. Has famous clientele on the walls. Best shrimp po-boy in the city (debated). Grab it to go and take the cab to Audubon Park to sit & eat.

·Frankie & Johnny's bar and grill on Arabella (uptown): more of a sit-down place, but phenomenal po-boys and side dishes too.

·Parkway Bakery & Tavern (Bayou St John area): legendary po-boy spot where locals eat on game day. Get something messy, like roast beef.

·Mahony's Po-Boys: heard great things, but never been personally.

Burgers & Whatnot:

·Cowbell (Oak St., uptown): best burger in the city, for my opinion. Not much on the menu, sort of hipster, but the sauce they use would start a war. Amazing. Good spirits selection as well.

·Company Burger (Freret St, uptown): another good burger place, with a variety of sauces. They're also in a great location to walk around & explore (Freret St. corridor is a new area in town).

·Dat Dog on Freret St: hot dog place with attitude. Hundreds of toppings and great beers. Very cool, fun, casual place. Cash only.

·Port-of-Call on Esplenade: long-established burger & potato joint. A staple of the neighborhood.

Downtown Places:

·Coop's Place on Decatur: Hole in the wall bar & restaurant with the best red beans & rice in the city. Fact.

·Central Grocery on Decatur: Italian grocery store that invented the muffaletta. No, seriously, they invented it. They're huge and delicious there.

·Napoleon House on Chartres: nice location, a bit on the pricier side, but the food is phenomenal and the location is historic.

·Mother's on Poydras: famous landmark. Get there early for breakfast, as the omelets are worth it. Good po-boys too.

Other Places/Things To Try:

·Juan's Flying Burrito (multiple locations): quasi-mexican food with unique flair and twist. Cheap prices. On Carrollton & Canal and Magazine.

·Café du Monde: famous location in the French Quarter has never closed. Ever. Split and order of beignets and some café au lait for a great breakfast or late night treat. Other locations in Metairie, if you want to avoid the crowd.

·Anywhere on Frenchman Street: night location with bars & music, less touristy than the quarter, more locals. Always a unique place to hang out.

·Abita Beer (especially Amber, Turbodog, and Purple Have), Nola Brewery (Blonde and Hopitoulas)

·Cheesecake Bistro on St. Charles: New Orleans's personal take on the Cheesecake Factory. Better entrees, large portions. On streetcar line.

·Camellia Grill on Carrollton: legendary all-day breakfast & countertop joint. Historic to the city, legendary chefs there, cheap greasy food. Worth the wait outside. On the St. Charles streetcar line.

Rocky & Carlo's.
St. Bernard: 613 W St Bernard Hwy. 504-279-8323.

no one will regret it.
 
2013-03-30 01:38:14 AM

Unfreakable: Hey locals: what are the must-see/must-do things when we get there? What restaurants do you recommend? What places?


Thou shalt eat at The Gumbo Shop. Second best meal of my life there. Stand on Decatur St looking across Jackson Sq (to NW) past the statue towards the church cathedral. Look left of the church. Small alley looking street runs NW from the west corner. That's Saint Peter's St. Go up the street, restaurant on left. I can't imagine how many people walk within 100 yards of the place and never know it exists.
http://www.gumboshop.com/

Unlikely I'll be able to attend. Enjoy, you farkers.

(You'll notice there aren't many downtown places here. Personal preference)

Seafood:


·Drago's: best oysters in the city. You'll definitely pay for it, though.


There is a Drago's in the hotel at 2 Poydras, where many of you are staying. FYI. It's not quite the same atmosphere as the original in Fat City, but the Chargrilled Oysters are an absolute must-have.

Creole/Cajun Food:

·Parkway Bakery & Tavern (Bayou St John area): legendary po-boy spot where locals eat on game day. Get something messy, like roast beef.


Agreed. Get the Roast Beef Po'Boy "with debris"...this means with the pan drippings/gravy. If you eat this and your face is clean and stuff ain't runnin' down your arm, you're doing it wrong.

·Napoleon House on Chartres: nice location, a bit on the pricier side, but the food is phenomenal and the location is historic.

If you go here, you must have a drink called a Pimm's Cup. Also, they serve their Muffulettas hot, which is rare, but very tasty.

Anywhere on Frenchman Street: night location with bars & music, less touristy than the quarter, more locals. Always a unique place to hang out.

As pointed out above, there is a Frenchmen Street Pub Crawl on Friday night. It starts at Happy Hour at Galvez (www.galvezrestaurant.com), moves on to Checkpoint Charlie, then on to Frenchmen Street proper.  If you are planning on attending the Galvez Happy Hour part, please speak up...the Manager there is planning something nice for us, but would like a ballpark figure for a headcount. She's also extending HH for us until 6.30, which includes both drinks and food. Their HH food is tremendous, especially the small plates and Gumbo, and will be a nice base for a long night of imbibing.

Abita Beer (especially Amber, Turbodog, and Purple Have), Nola Brewery (Blonde and Hopitoulas)

Purple Haze, not Have.

Camellia Grill on Carrollton: legendary all-day breakfast & countertop joint. Historic to the city, legendary chefs there, cheap greasy food. Worth the wait outside. On the St. Charles streetcar line.

There is also a Camellia Grill in the Quarter, but I really recommend the original, as well.


Also, please be aware that on Saturday afternoon, the Freret Street Festival is going on Uptown, which you can also reach via St. Charles Streetcar. It's where several Farkers are planning to wander around...live music, food, vendors...plus Insta-Gator Farms will be there, so you can hold a live baby alligator if you want.

CORRECTION: FRENCHMEN STREET PUB CRAWL IS THURSDAY NIGHT.
 
2013-03-30 08:07:06 AM

pute kisses like a man: for the weird foodie, check out serendipity (or green goddess, if you don't mind waiting 3 hours to eat -- but, at least it's in quarter).


Thursday lunch is at Serendipity at 11.30. If anyone is planning on going, please let me know so I can let Chef Chris know how many will be in for lunch. I don't want to overwhelm the kitchen. Serendipity is not a Quarter restaurant, it's in Mid-City in the American Can Apartments, on the first floor, and it's mostly locals, so they'll be freaked if 20 people walk in unexpectedly. So far, I have 8 of us attending.

Franky & Johnny's closed. A rat fell out of the ceiling on a customer. I used to love that place but it steadily declined in quality after Katrina.

Beerguy: The craft beer fanatics should do a side trip to the Abita Brewery...about 30 mins outside of N.O.

[img820.imageshack.us image 640x480]
As you can see, the Beerguy has already been.

I can not recommend this enough.


Nola Brewery on Tchoupitoulas (you'll all have this pronunciation down within five minutes) does tours on Fridays.  They have a phenomenal Irish Channel Stout.

Sargun: oh fark me, I'm moving out of NOLA in a few weeks

I'm just gonna go slash my wrists now


While you would get the joy of staying here, the stay would be in the waiting room at LSU Medical.  No one wants that.
 
2013-03-30 10:20:13 PM
 I wanted to remind everyone to please check out the WWII Museum (formerly known as D-Day Museum).  It's farking phenomenal. You don't have to be a military or gun nut to enjoy it.

As others have noted, Bourbon is more or less a waste of your time. Aside from some bars being open 24 hours and you being able to drink alcohol on the street, there's nothing NOLA about it. For that you need to heed the advice of other NOLA Farkers in this thread and hit uptown, Frenchmen St., etc. Go to Bourbon just to say you did it, but after that you might want to check out what New Orleans is really all about, and why we're so passionate about living here.

Bourbon is also filthy. Funny...it's the same tourists who complain about the filth that completely trash our French Quarter. Iguarantee that when you visit it, the only locals will be the 22 year-old blonde and dead-eyed bartenders who commute from the suburbs and the hustlers hitting you up for spare change. No one...I mean NO ONE who lives here actually drinks there.

Once you get deeper in the Quarter, it turns very local, very quickly. You'll notice that it's clean, too.

I love the French Quarter (lived there for ten years or so), but am irritated that people from all around the world take Bourbon St. and extrapolate it to the entire city, telling their friends back home about the smell of piss, failure, and stale sex. Maybe if tourists bothered to investigate the city they'd understand it's nowhere near the armpit we're accused of being. And as noted in my profile, it's our visitors that make it so raunchy.

I live uptown now, and there is an EIP. I'm a NOLA expert. Anyone needing advice, drop me a line!
 
2013-03-30 10:28:12 PM
I'm looking forward to it, I'm a lurker, mostly, and a NOLA farker, but I will try to go to some events if work cooperates with me.

Boyfriend and I would love to go (April 7 is our anniversary and we met because of TFD) but money is tight and our bosses wouldn't approve the PTO for it.

Someone have a drink for us - he likes German beers and I like Irish whiskey.
 
2013-03-30 11:58:07 PM
Wooooooo amazing timing. I live in the area, I work blocks from there. Hot diggity damn! Beer, Fark, and Crawfish, the top three things in life that I love that didn't make it to the top ten list!

I live in what's called the Irish Channel. It's ground zero for St. Pat's and, as you might guess, Irish whisky. Not just Jameson and Bushmill's, but a huge selection at our two main bars (Parasol's and Tracey's). I will celebrate on your behalf. Not really a German beer neighborhood but I'll figure something out at one of the brewpubs downtown.

Gotta represent my Fark peeps.

I'm sure Avenue Pub has a few German beers.

Dancin_In_Anson: Is Felix's still the place to scarf some ersters?


Felix's has always been the place to go if Acme, across the street, has a line longer than you want to wait.  IF you can get a seat at the oyster bar up front in Acme, and I say IF, you will have a great time.  The Mother Shuckers who work there will give you a good time.  Just order oysters.  That's all.  Not a dozen, not two dozen, just oysters.  If you show you'll be a good tipper, you'll learn what Louisiana lagniappemeans.  They just stack the shells in front and count, kind of. Also, even more important, realize they are shucking for the rest of the restaurant, putting dozens on trays.  They will give you the best and coldest, just as they are shucking, when you need them.  If you are or are with a female farker, they will put on a show feeding you or your friend an oyster and then wiping your chin.  Having lived in NOLA and gone to Acme many times with my ex-wife, and later dates and friends, I love sitting at the oyster bar.  Just tell the person at the door you want to sit there.  Usually you'll get seated before most of the others in front of you since they are looking for a table.

Another bar to go to is the Balcony on Magazine, across from the Bulldog.  Three areas.  Downstairs happy hour are the locals as within walking distance.  The upstairs bar is usually the hangout for gays.  The Balcony is likely to be inhabited by an Uptown group.  Tulane and Loyola students, yuppies, etc.  Also there are some rooms upstairs where some people have planned or impromptu parties. Downstairs later becomes completely different.  They have as many beers or more on tap as the Bulldog, (48 I think) and much cheaper.

Not being from the Uptown crowd, (I went to LSU, not Tulane), I like the Balcony better.  Plus, within walking distance from where I lived, most of the people were my friends.  Bulldog was a bit too yuppyish for me.  Just my opinion.
 
2013-03-31 09:58:36 AM
If you are on Bourbon and want Oysters, stop in to Remoulade.

Uptown, Cooter Brown's has an excellent Oyster bar, as well as an excellent beer selection. Also Uptown on St. Charles is The Blind Pelican, which serves .25 Oysters during Happy Hour.

Pascal's Manale is THE place to experience New Orleans style BBQ Shrimp, but they also have an excellent Oyster bar, although rather small.

Also try Bozo's and The Bourbon House.

Warning : Shameless plug for a friend's band:

If you are in town on Thursday April 4th and want to here some live "swamp pop" style music, check out The Creole String Beans.  They'll be playing at Chickie Wah Wah, 2828 Canal St (accessible by the Canal St Streetcar) at 8:00 p.m.  They're a fun party band and CWW is a pretty cool, off-the-beaten-path bar.  Check 'em out on Youtube.  (I get no money or other compensation from The Beans - I just enjoy their music).

They'll also be playing at The Freret Street Festival on Saturday April 6th.  This is a fairly new festival but it's gaining a lot of fans thanks to it's great food, music, craft vendors and block party atmosphere.  You'll probably need a cab to get to it, but it's a great way to experience a New Orleans style street party !

Quick question on the two fark-only events (The Bricks, VooDoo Vibe).  Especially the former, since its free... how do we inform people we're part of the party?

I'm going to be at both most likely.

Secondly... the feret st. market... any procedure to get us all together?  I don't know most farkers by anything but their handles.  I'm going to the feret st. market, me and the Mrs. don't go all the time anway.  So I won't be part of a carpool or whatever.  But I'd dig knowing who's who there.

You mean Freret Street Festival?
I have no idea how we'd know each other...I guess if someone recognizes someone else...or if people go there together....text each other, maybe? Or follow the hash #FarkNOLA2013 on Twitter. It's Saturday afternoon, so I'm hoping that by then, people would sort of recognize each other from the Thurs/Fri events.
Also, you could look in the Children's Pavilion at Insta-Gator...any adult going out of their minds and pushing kids out of the way to hold a baby alligator...is probably a Farker.

X1's Here: Coop's on Decatur, but apparently the word it out about that place...I've never seen it more crowded than in the last few years. Lines to get in. Lines!



I was first told about it 3 years ago and when I went it was easy sailing. Went a few weekends ago and it was balls to the wall packed. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who thought it somehow blew up.

I knew chris from eating at green goddess, and then one night my wife and i ran into him at mimi's and spent the whole night talking about stuff, mainly literature (he was just opening serendipity), since then we hit it off and went to his soft opening at serendipity and talk everytime we see him (though, i haven't gone back to serendipity too many times, unfortunately).

I really wish I could make lunch, but I'm going to be slaving away for that yankee dollar.  maybe that night or friday...

but, overall, bad timing for the fark party, i'm a best man in a wedding this weekend that will pretty much soak up any time to be around farkers.

well, so what's the friday deal?  that might be a possibility

/ i have eip, normally, i never check it, but i will for as long as this fark party is going on

Friday is an unnamed event (how mysterious!) at Checkpoint Charlie at 4pm, then a party at The Bricks starting at 8pm.

My boyfriend and I need a place to crash.  Any volunteers?  We only require a corner in a room...(We don't mind the floor)  I'll be bringing home made food...(probably pizza and some sort of pasta to cure the hangovers) (I AM a GREAT COOK)  I'm a professional photographer and I'll be documenting the whole party :)

Why would anyone bring food to NOLA?
*puzzled*
 
2013-04-02 02:23:41 PM
From Cooter Brown's a couple of nights ago... If you're going to Cooter's, note that about half of the streetcar line Uptown is out of service, the track is dug up for repairs.  Coming from downtown, you'd still take the streetcar toward uptown...& then they'll transfer you to a city bus that will take you the rest of the way along the same stops. (No additional charge for the bus ride, just replaces the streetcar for much of the route right now.)

Because cooking your own food you can control that no crap goes into it and it's a lot cheaper and it tastes better.  :)

Unfreakable: Not everything has to take place on Bourbon Street, but for a lot of people who have never been there, it wouldn't make sense to go to New Orleans and then not even go there once. New Orleans is a hell of a lot more than just Bourbon Street, and I expect that the locals will be able to show noobs like me what's cool.


I'm local, and if you say "crawdad" down here, you may get stabbed.

I mean, you may get stabbed anyway, but "crawdad" will get you there sooner.

The Joint is a great BBQ place in the Bywater, and Mrs. Angus and I really like Maurepas Foods in the Marigny. I'm not sure that I'd recommend that an out-of-towner visit those two places after dark.

There are also great restaurants in the Warehouse district (Root, Rio Mar) and the CBD (Luke, Domenica, Mother's).

Eat and drink yourselves silly!

To follow up, the preferred nomenclature is "crawfish." "Mudbugs" and "crayfish" are equally unacceptable.
 
2013-04-02 09:48:27 PM
Crawfish it is. I don't know where I got the other term, it doesn't come up in my normal conversation.
 
2013-04-02 09:56:55 PM
I'd love to go, with it being so close by and all, but I have a date in the marsh in one of the most remote areas of the Louisiana coast this weekend.  Anyone who wants to follow along, we will be camping out and fishing in the flyway along East Little Constance Bayou near East Constance Lake, which is only accessible from the Gulf.  Come to think about it, it won't be much different than any party in New Orleans.  The similarity is that if you run into trouble, you pretty much have to solve it yourself, so keep awake and aware.  No one will rescue you.

Have fun y'all.
 
2013-04-02 10:25:52 PM
Best Korea might try to cancel the fun. I'd be careful about non-refundable fares.

You absolutely should. It's a great museum.

Skip the "4-D movie", it's pretty lame. The restaurant in the museum (American Canteen?) is a John Besh restaurant, and is really good.
 
2013-04-03 08:19:40 AM

And also The Soda Shop  http://www.nationalww2museum.org/american-sector/the-soda-shop.html

Another must-do at the Museum....eavesdrop.

There are dozens of old people there with their families, and they will often stop and point stuff out, and say "I was there" or "That's me in that picture" or "Oh, I remember that"....they mean to be talking to their families, but the stories they tell are fascinating to listen to.
Also, make sure you shake their hand and thank them for their service. Even there, in the museum, they don't expect to hear it and are very appreciative.

I'm trying to decide where to go to lunch on Friday (Thurs is Serendipity). I've been to Bayona for dinner, never for lunch. I just want Oysters, so I'll probably just go to Felix's or somewhere like that.

I do not care for duck. I keep trying it, hoping I'll like it, but I just don't. I've come to accept that fact and the disbelief from others that follows that pronouncement.

FWIW, I didn't like duck until I had a bite of that sandwich when my wife ordered it. Now we both order it every time we go for lunch. It's also got cashew butter and pepper jelly (both things I also never would've dreamed I would like), so the duck flavor is somewhat masked.
 
2013-04-03 10:45:21 AM
Interesting. Maybe someday I'll try it.

BTW...if anyone is around tonight, I'm coming into town late, but I might be awake enough to stop in to my local living room, Lucky's on St. Charles, for a nightcap. Anyone around after 9/9.30, join me there!

Couldn't agree more. One of the actual highlights of my life was going to the WWII museum with my (now 95ish year old) grandfather a few years back.

He's still bright eyed and bushy tailed, but his eyes lit up in that place, and he had a story for everything we saw.

I can't recall if he has been since they opened the Pacific Theater wing.

if you want raw oysters for lunch in the cbd, luke's (a besh restaurant) has a happy hour of $0.50 gulf oysters and half price drinks from 3-6 every day.  they have great oysters.  they also serve all the baked oysters and oysters from different parts of the world, but that's not promoted on happy hour.

I want lunch, not HH...if I want HH Oysters, I usually go to The Blind Pelican on St. Charles for .25 Oysters...but if I'm in the CBD, Luke is a good choice (of COURSE it is... <3 Besh!).

I will probably just play it by ear and see who's around to do what and what they want to try. I'm more than happy to take visitors to Cooter Brown's, Mother's, etc...or even hop a cab for a Dooky Chase lunch. mmmm.....Dooky Chase.....

i've made several dozen raw oysters a lunch...  whoops.  that might not be for everyone.

good offerings, but when i have lunch somewhere,  it's usually in the cbd, cause that's where i work and i don't have a car, so my lunch references are a little cbd centric.

here are just some offerings for any farkers:

for brunch. I would recommend coulis (bring your own vodka, they make a great bloody mary, fresh juices and all. but they don't have a liquor license -- convenience store across the street sells booze) (uptown - easy access by street car).  you could also try satsuma or surrey's... (bywater, or lower garden district or uptown).  or, if you're a fancy person, commander's palace (garden district) or galatoire's (quarter).  lately, for brunch, my wife and i either go coulis or satsuma, despite the fact i live only about 100 ft from surrey's (they've lost my attention.  still good, but not as good as i remember -- i only sneak in there to get fresh juices)

or, if you make it towards the cooter brown's area (riverbend? butt fark uptown?  carrolton? whatever you call it), try the grits at Fuel.  quite possibly the best grits on earth.  oh yeah, and their other food is great too (just a breakfast/brunch place, closed for dinner).  or camelia's (but, there's also a camelia's in the quarter -- i usually go for the chef's special omelette, but then i get made fun of, because i take the chili on the side.  fortunately, i eat the way i want and take criticism on deaf ears)

for anyone staying through till monday, don't miss out on some red beans and rice and hot or smoked sausage at commerce restaurant (unless, of course, you want to eat fancy, cause this ain't fancy.  you'll feel like you stepped in a time machine.  sitting in this restaurant for an hour and you will hear every municipal secret in new orleans, i learned all about the superbowl power outage by listening to the entergy people who frequent the place).  probably the best you can eat for $6.  they serve other stuff like po-boys and whatever.  i'd go here over mothers

or, if you make it to a weekday, try the crawfish bisque at bon ton cafe (first cajun restaurant opened in new orleans, note, it's closed on weekends).  it's obscene and you won't find a soup like this any where else on the planet because it's extremely labor intensive to make.  it might even make you wet your pants its so good.  turtle soup's good too.  but, you their crawfish bisque is really singular.  in my humble opinion.  (also, sitting in this restaurant for an hour and you will hear every legal matter going on in new orleans, it always has a bunch of judges and lawyers)

but, in closing, try to eat at bayona.  it's one of my favorites.  i had a friend who was the soux chef there, and that doesn't really mean anything, other than, it's an awesome restaurant.  susan spicer (the head chef lady) really knows food

i would also say serendipity, but that's part of the plan. chef chris will take you somewhere that all other young chef's only wish they could.  he's like the guy that does all the weird stuff and it works, unlike the million failures of all the other over-ambitious, young chefs.  not that chris is young, but his food is.

My Dad was a USGC combat veteran...sure wish he was still around so he could join us. Last time I went to New Orleans (98), he told me to have a martini for him at the revolving bar at the Monteleon. I think that I will have one this weekend as well in his memory.

Skyday: I'm a professional photographer and I'll be documenting the whole party :)


I'm a professional and a photographer (and sometimes those two even overlap), and based on my experience it is impossible to document the whole party as just one person. Put business aside and enjoy yourself instead.

Going in the other direction, I've got a free 8x8 photo book from Shutterfly and the state of Florida (20 pages) (coupon available at visitor centers entering the state of Floriduh). I was thinking about creating a yearbook of sorts for this year's convention.

Here's a review of some pics from last year.

For eye-bleach, I recommend gazing upon the photos our wonderful TI waitstaff in their red costumes. Some would say they are the perfect woman: they dress well, bring food and libations upon request, and all they ask for is money.

Fortunately (or unfortunately depending on your attitude), New Orleans seems to have much crappier weather in April than Las Vegas. Three and a half inches of rain on Tuesday and they're still complaining about a drought.

The spicy red pepper jelly and the toasty-ness of the cashew butter are probably what makes the duck taste yummy.

Duck is fatty so you need another flavor to "cut" it with so it ain't all fatty greasiness.

I'm about to go do laundry and pack and such. Hopefully I won't oversleep and can get on the road by 6:30 or 7:00 tomorrow morning, so I have enough time to get there, unpack, and make it to the meetup at Checkpoint Charlie's. I'm definitely at zomgexcited levels right now.

Thank god for the French Quarter pedicabs. Good after-party spots are Barcadia in the CBD and The Country Club in the Marigny (if it warms up enough merit swimming). If you can get around during the day, The Pharmacy Museum on Chartres is only $5 and worth it; the best legit voodoo shop the locals use is F&Fs on Broad; and the best Snoball you'll ever have in your life is Hansen's on Tchoupitoulas - If you don't have diabetes or are looking to get diabetes, Hansen's is a must.

To anyone in town tonight, I invite you to come watch the season Championship round of playoffs for The New Orleans Skeeball & Drinking League @ The Half Moon Bar & Grill starting at 7:30.

so, how does one simply walk into a fark party?  like the friday deal that's only for farkers?  how would they know if i lied?  well, i guess it would be impossible to lie about my farkhood, since, by my posting, it is evident (but it's only a lite farkhood with only occasional total farkhood) but how would 'they' know.  i've never met another farker in real life.  at least, not one that would reveal his handle.

Hey all, local guy here(limo driver too!), I'd like to welcome you all back home!

On Saturday there is a nice little spot called Mimi's, which is home to DJ Soul Sister. She plays disco music all on vinyl, so she has the title of the queen of rare grooves! Its within walking distance of frenchmen on  2601 Royal Street. She starts playing at 11pm, but i usually go there about 12:30 ish
http://www.mimisinthemarigny.net/

As far as food goes, if you want a homegrown spot that cooks their food from scratch, try Neyow's Creole Cafe
http://www.neyowscreolecafe.net/

Blue Nile has a open public balcony on fri and saturday nights ( around 12 ish) with Dj Black Pearl playing old school hip hop music.

Another great tool is the wwoz livewire
http://www.wwoz.org/new-orleans-community/music-calendar


I wonder if I should do city tours for some people? hmm? Anyhoo

If you don't mind going to a "hood" spot of town, you can get some hot crawfish near by. (10 mins away from downtown) Via Cajuns, or if you want to go to a non hood spot, there is Ka'Jeans on carrolton and canal

Okay. Gotta make plans to get back...

pute kisses like a man: for anyone staying through till monday, don't miss out on some red beans and rice and hot or smoked sausage at commerce restaurant (unless, of course, you want to eat fancy, cause this ain't fancy.  you'll feel like you stepped in a time machine.  sitting in this restaurant for an hour and you will hear every municipal secret in new orleans, i learned all about the superbowl power outage by listening to the entergy people who frequent the place).  probably the best you can eat for $6.  they serve other stuff like po-boys and whatever.  i'd go here over mothers


Commerce! Years ago I was an overnight bartender at Chuck's (you know where it is). I got off work around 9am and had breakfast (dinner) there seemingly every day. Everything in your post is spot-on.

No, it ain't fancy. But large, wise black women call you "sugar" and "dawlin'," and the food is inexplicably awesome for the same price you'd pay to be annoyed at a Waffle House.

And Mother's? Eh, it's good, but they seem to be coasting by on reputation alone.

Shoulda showed up and played "who'd gonna punch me first".

Nah...I don't think I've gotten any New Orleans Farkers that ticked off at me yet.
 
2013-04-07 12:00:33 PM
Holy fark my head hurts.

Aaaand I successfully escaped Louisiana.  Good time this weekend.  Sorry I snuck off without saying bye.  (I do that sometimes.)
 
2013-04-07 06:24:11 PM
Groping....I did an ass-embly line to grope all asses on the balcony.
What a great time!
I'm rolling through Mobile now, so the total mildly hungover drive time will be 3 hours even.
 
2013-04-07 07:48:05 PM
Nice meeting everyone!
 
2013-04-07 07:54:49 PM
Soooo...I know one Farker who got arrested Saturday.  :S  Don't pee in a parking garage!  We would have picked you up if we hadn't have locked our keys in the car while we were distracted by the officer cuffing you :/
 
2013-04-07 08:04:11 PM
I just got home... I partied harder this weekend than at any other time in my life, and that's saying something. Can't wait for next year!

I need to make sure he's okay, first... (I sent him a few texts but no response so far.) I don't want to embarrass him.  We were supposed to crash at his place but ended up sleeping in the car after we got it unlocked two hours later.  My boyfriend and I tried the coat hanger method....then I was so tired I slept on the concrete by the car until the person came to unlock it.  It was an interesting end to the evening.

To the Farker who REALLY HAD TO PEE:
I understand you REALLY had to pee!!  I hope you're okay, man!  ...I can't believe you decided to pee right in the middle of the parking garage ramp where all the cars come down.  Goof ball.  Come to Houston!  We'll have a party indoors where you can pee in the potty!  <3  (Or we can go camping since you seem to enjoy peeing outside.)

/sigh!

Safe at home! Thanks to all who made it possible. That was one of the funnest weekends I've had in recent memory. The scavenger hunt was a brilliant idea!

It was great to finally put some faces and personalities to the names I've seen here for so long. Y'all are the bestest!

checked opp and jpso(neighboring) for legal name and common misspellings in custody...  nothing--so either he was released or there's an error somewhere.  will put out a couple calls and update later.  busy day.

opcso.org should have inmate query--fairly simple.

hopefully he's in the limbo between being released, burning worn clothes, and charging phone.

As f'ed up as OPP is, their online database of who is in jail is actually fairly accurate to within a few hours.  (I use it on a near-daily basis in my job.)  If there is no listing, then he's likely out.

Also:  In the Orleans Parish Prison database, you can search just using the first two letters of his first and last name.

No problem.  Figured I'd try to lure you out of the lurking den.  And it was nice meeting you. Plus I had a couple of unused sponsorships and figured it was as good a time as any.

To say I had an awesome time would be an understatement, it was far better than that
