Be Like a Local in New Orleans

March 20th, 2012 by bbnola

The folks who live and work in New Orleans are like folks everywhere. We’re busy with our work, our families, our friends. We like to go out as much as the next person, but, like most, we watch our wallets. That’s why you’ll see so many of us Wednesday at the Square.

Each Wednesday evening from now through May 30, 2012, Lafayette Square will be filled with music, food, and a lot of happy people. Each week, a band will take the stage and play for the crowd. It’s a chance to be outside and hear great music and maybe see some old friends. It’s a chance to enjoy the spring weather and maybe dance a bit. Locals will be there. Tourists will be there. We’ll all be happy.

The Wednesday at the Square line-up includes:

  • Big Sam’s Funky Nation
  • The Wise Guys
  • Tab Benoit’s Swampland Jam
  • Amanda Shaw and the Cute Guys
  • Trombone Shorty
  • Hot 8 Brass Band

For a complete line-up, please visit Wendesday at the Square.

The music starts at 5 p.m. and concludes at 8 p.m., rain or shine. Stop by before heading out to dinner, or stay all evening and dine from the food booths.

Many New Orleans Bed and Breakfasts are located close to Lafayette Square.

New Orleans on a Budget

April 18th, 2011 by bbnola

Travel to New Orleans doesn’t have to break the bank. There are many ways to save on everything from lodging to activities. One thing is true – the more flexible you can be with your travel plans, the easier it is to save.

Start by looking for New Orleans Bed and Breakfast lodging specials, where you’ll find a variety of ways to get more for less. B&Bs New Orleans offer such specials as Stay 4 nights and get the 5th night free and Last Minute Discounts; they are worth investigating.

Once installed in a New Orleans Bed and Breakfast, cast about for free or inexpensive activities. New Orleans has long been a welcoming city. Music pours out of bars and parades pass by hourly (or so it sometimes seems). Visitors need do little more than walk about the city to experience its culture.

Inexpensive New Orleans Activities:

  • Wednesdays at the Square: from April to June 15, 2011, Lafayette Square is the place to be. Established New Orleans and Louisiana musicians offer free outdoor concerts, playing everything from jazz to funk and swamp pop. Bring a blanket for lounging or dance. Food booths will be set up around the square – an inexpensive way to dine in New Orleans. Concerts run from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. See Wednesday at the Square for the line-up.
