    Mardi Gras Walk

    NOLA Walkabout

    - (www.nolawalkabout.com) -

    A Walkabout is unlike any Tour in New Orleans. There's no planned or scripted itinerary. You experience "The Big Easy" as the Locals do; spontaneously, in all its festive glory.

    Walkabout: "a short period of wandering as an occasional interruption of regular work."

    NOLA Walkabout – spontaneous walking adventures through New Orleans & the French Quarter.

    Encounter the real New Orleans…the Local Bars, the Neighborhoods, the Music, and the Nightlife.

    NOLA Walkabouts aren't for everyone. They do not conduct Tours. They do not have canned scripts. They don't adhere to a strict itinerary. Every Walkabout is a unique journey & cultural experience.

    Embark on a revealing trip, wandering the most individual city in America with a member of their knowledgeable Local Staff. Every 3-hour Walk has an underlying theme...however, each develops its own agenda based on the Group & events in NOLA that day.

    Walkabouts are designed for those seeking Local insight and the lasting memories of the Crescent City not listed on a travel brochure.

    Walkabouts:
    ~ Afternoon Quarter Walk
    ~ Jazz & Brass Bands Walk
    ~ Evening Quarter Walk
    ~ Frenchmen Street Walk
    ~ Warehouse District & CBD Walk
    ~ Late Night Quarter Walk
    ~ Saints & LSU Sports Bar Walk
    ~ Nightclub Party Walk
    ~ After Hours Bar Walk
    ~ Special Event Walks (Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, etc.)
    ~ Bachelor/Bachelorette Walks
    ~ Customized & Corporate Walks (please inquire for more info)

    A unique journey for those seeking to get insight from locals living in New Orleans and to actually interact with the locals.

    Old Point Bar

    If you're staying on the East Bank, catch the ferry at the end of Canal Street to Algiers Point to spend an evening at Old Point Bar. Virtually tourist free and frequented by locals, this neighborhood hangout has several draft beers and plenty of beers by the bottle. With live bands playing several time a week, to the pool table and dart boards, this ULTRA FRIENDLY neighborhood hangout will give you a taste of what New Orleans is all about. Good Friends. Cheap Beer. Great New Orleans experience.

    Meet the Mayor of New Orleans

    by gussymons Written Jun 30, 2003
    Mayor of New Orleans with author at Mardi Gras '02

    Mark Moriel Jr. is the mayor of New Orleans and he met me the day after Fat Tuesday at a Press conference. I thanked him for having organised Mardi Gras 2002 for me, and said what a great town it was.

    The Press conference wasn't held for me, but to point out mundane things such as tonnes of litter collected, muggings and other violent crimes during Mardi Gras - remarkably few.

    Anyhow, he is the first mayor I ever met and not the last. Unfortunately, I do not have the photo of me and the Croydon mayor - you have to take my word that I met him later that year. Two mayors in one year! Now I know what the Queen must feel.
