One of the more popular ways to spend a Tuesday night in New Orleans is to visit the Maple Leaf when the Rebirth Brass Band is playing. And they do- every Tuesday night. The energy was so fun. The drinks were not too expensive. The...More

Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the
greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down
the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate
feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the

Stick with your plan. Did you see who is at the Maple Leaf on Wed. night? The New Orleans Suspects. Are you in town for the French Quarter Fest? That'll be a great time.
