New Orleans, LA, United States

"From the homepage: In 1994, Ernie K-Doe opened the world-famous Ernie K-Doe Mother-in-Law Lounge at 1500 N. Claiborne Avenue in New Orleans, Louisiana. One of K-Doe's main reasons for opening the Lounge was to provide a place for New Orleans' living legends to come and perform. Don't be surprised if you find yourself rubbing elbows with some of the greats of the Crescent City when you visit the Mother-in-Law Lounge. The Lounge is a shrine to the immortal legend of K-Doe. The walls are adorned with photographs and artwork of K-Doe throughout his life. Many pictures of K-Doe's family and friends can be seen as well. When K-Doe was still with us, it wasn't uncommon to have the Emperor himself greet you at the door. Today, Antoinette continues to keep alive the warm, friendly, hospitable environment that K-Doe's fans have come to expect. You are nothing if not well-taken-care-of at the Mother-in-Law Lounge. Have a drink and play the jukebox, which has one of the best selections you can find of classic New Orleans R&B artists (including a great many K-Doe hits!). The Mother-in-Law Lounge is located at the edge of New Orleans' historic Trem"

Upstairs, dine at Adolfo's - for a fish of the day cooked your way, rack of lamb, pasta, bring your own vino. D.B.A.: good music venue across the street, often no-cover shows, large selection of beer...but overpriced. Tuesday nights with drummer Johnny Vidacovich can prove stellar."

"Lafitte's is rumoured to be the oldest building in the Mississippi River Valley dating back to the 1770s. Supposedly Jean Lafitte and his brother were pirates that used the blacksmith shop as a front for selling their stolen goods. Nothing has been done to the place to make it modern day. From the outside, it looks like a shanty, but the inside is quite cozy. Best described as a piano bar, there are no lights inside except for a small fire blazing in a stone hearth and some candles. The entire building is brick and mortar with a wooden beam here and there for stability. Locals come early and leave early. If you enjoy singing along, take one of the seats situated around the piano. Have a request? Expect to pay the piano man to play. As the evening wears on, people come out of the woodwork and fascinate the crowd with their best blues voice, accompanied by the piano man if he likes your sound. Truly, some people are possessed by the blues."

"From Wikipedia: The Maple Leaf is on Oak Street in the Carrollton neighborhood of Uptown New Orleans. Opened in 1972, it is one of the longest continuing operation of New Orleans' music clubs with live performances seven nights a week. Musical styles represented include blues, funk, R&B, rock, zydeco, jazz, jam bands and any combination thereof, hosting both local performers and touring national acts. Frequent performers at the Maple Leaf have included local legends James Booker, the Rebirth Brass Band, Papa Grows Funk, Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown, Walter "Wolfman" Washington, The Radiators and Henry Butler. Unannounced sit-ins are not uncommon; Bruce Springsteen once dropped i to jam with The Iguanas and Jon Cleary's band was once joined by his frequent employer, Bonnie Raitt. The Leaf has also been an important incubator for the city's many up-and-coming bands formed from the ranks of local musicians and music students at Tulane University, Loyola University and the University of New Orleans. The poet Everette Maddox was a famous denizen of the Maple Leaf and as of 2006 famed psychologist Dave Corey can often be found holding forth at the bar. The Everette C. Maddox Memorial Prose & Poetry Reading, held every Sunday in the courtyard at The Maple Leaf, is the longest running poetry reading in North America."

"From the Habitat site: Hurricanes Katrina and Rita forced many musicians to flee New Orleans. Jazz, blues, and other genres that are the city's musical score, cannot return until the musicians return, and many have lost their homes. Habitat for Humanity International and New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity, working with Harry Connick Jr. and Branford Marsalis, honorary chairs of Operation Home Delivery, seek to change this. Plans were announced Tuesday, Dec. 6, 2005 for a "Musicians' Village." The Musicians' Village, conceived by Connick and Marsalis, will consist of 72 single-family, Habitat-constructed homes for displaced New Orleans musicians and other qualifying Habitat partner families. Its centerpiece will be the Ellis Marsalis Center for Music, dedicated to the education and development of homeowners and others who will live nearby. On January 9, 2006 NOAHH acquired eight acres of land in the Upper 9th Ward where the core area of the Musicians' Village will be located. Construction began in March 2006 and as of December 2007 70 single family homes are either complete or under construction! In addition to the homes in the Musicians' Village core site, NOAHH owns and is building on an additional 70 lots in the surrounding Upper 9th Ward neighborhood."

"A lovely restaurant with extensive local menu, the courtyard next to the fountain or a dark promotes conversation, the bartender serves the famous Pimm's Cup, and the builing itself is something to soak in. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- Taken from the website: Few places capture the essence of New Orleans like the Napoleon House: A 200 year old landmark that's as casual and unique as its French Quarter surroundings. The building's first occupant, Nicholas Girod, was mayor of New Orleans from 1812 to 1815. He offered his residence to Napoleon in 1821 as a refuge during his exile. Napoleon never made it, but the name stuck, and since then, the Napoleon House has become one of the most famous bars in America, a haunt for artists and writers throughout most of the 20th century. Owned and operated by the Impastato family since 1914, it's a place that suspends you in time, where you can hear Beethoven's Eroiqua, which he composed for Napoleon, and the music of other classical masters, while sipping a Pimm's Cup, and basking in an ambiance that could only be New Orleans. -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- The historic New Orleans Pharmacy Museum is next door: http://www.pharmacymuseum.org/index.html"
