  • Jazz festival, Po Boys and brew.
  • Send a ship! The #stargate at #lafayettesquare in #neworleans is broken and rusted!!!
  • If you want history and to feel the "spirit" of Nola the park is for you. Excellent location and vibrant energy.

  • Watch out for 4-legged rodents the size of small dogs at night. Also, don't trip over snoozing bipeds
