We haven’t stopped jumping up and down all day.* Why? After three months of planning, researching, illustrating and plotting, we just debuted our Off the Record French Quarter guide — required reading if you’re planning a New Orleans trip! (And we hope you are. This town really is the best.)
Inside, you’ll find everything you need to know to get down and dirty like a local. We’ve got the best spots to sip Nola’s classic cocktails, must-try hidden kitchens, the most fab local retail, selfie spots (of course), indie art galleries — you name it. Our goal was to give visitors a taste of the secret French Quarter, the one locals love and TripAdvisor knows nothing about.
So, whether you’re looking for a glam courtyard to cool off with a Prosecco popsicle or looking for an authentic, pop-up shrimp boil hosted by one of our all-time favorite drag queens, we got you! Just think of it as all the benefits of a personal tour of the FQ without actually having to put up with us!
Our co-conspirators for this adventure? The artists and all around badasses at New Orleans’ own Oh Hi, Co. (That’s right! This is 100% local created. So, put that on your map!) It also features eye-catching illustrations, bright colors, quality paper, a protective sleeve and — because we know one of the best parts of vacay is making friends back home jelly — a bonus postcard!
We hope you’ll take a look, not just because we spent so much effort putting this together, but because we really want people to get to know this fabulous city a little better! Just in time for Jazz Fest, Nola’s 300 year anniversary, your weekend getaway — make your New Orleans trip authentic.
*Disclaimer: This is just an expression. We are not actually capable of jumping down all day. But the Oh Hi, Co. babes are!
