Let’s Talk New Orleans LA

New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and street parties.

As an outsider, I would describe the city as a reclaimed table.  It’s beaten up, a little crooked, but kinda looks cool.  Weather is great, the people can’t drive, and no one is in a hurry.

If your past time is to eat and drink, New Orleans definitely the place you want to live. =)

The NOLA Media Group is Louisiana’s largest media company, home of NOLA.com | The Times-Picayune, and New Orleans’ source for news and entertainment. The is located on the 31st floor of 365 Canal place, which one could argue has the best views of the city of New Orleans.
