B in New Orleans...Post-K

The B-Life doesn't work for the New Orleans board of Tourism, but we do want to encourage folks to visit one of America's gems. The city has a lot of work to do to restore the homes and lives of all it's residents, but many areas are alive and ready for your patronage. What comes first...that's always the question.

With upcoming events such as
Bayou Classic (Nov. 2007), Mardi Gras (Feb. 2008), The NBA All-Star Game (Feb. 2008), The Jazz and Heritage Festival (April & May 2008) and Essence Music Festival (July 2008) - you have every reason to see for yourself.

Today, we're spotlighting Faubourg-Marigny and The Metro to whet your palette. Bon' appetit!

This area is the sister to the illustrious French Quarter, but better known for it's concentration of cultural spots like Cafe' Brazil, The Hookah Bar, and Blue Nile, among others. You can't walk 10 steps without hearing live music pouring from an establishment or a sidewalk corner. It's a neighborhood with an authentic passion for artistry.

(Check for the rooftop patio at Blue Nile.)

And while you're in Faubourg-Marigny, don't forget to check out
Snug Harbor. This no-frills jazz spot embodies the jazz heritage of the city. Our first Marsalis- jazz experience was at Snug Harbor - it's a classic!

For an authentic club experience, people watching, and all-around good time, Metro delivers. Sunday is the right night. The DJ will take you through the latest in hip-hop, southern specialties, and the native bounce. If you're not familiar with that N'awlins brand of music, you will be before you leave.
