Things to do in New Orleans:

For general info:

www.frenchquarter.com

New Orleans hosts many festivals and celebrations throughout the year:

www.nola.com/festivals

There are many tours offered and examples are:

www.graylineneworleans.com
www.hauntedhistorytours.com
http://www.saveourcemeteries.org/cemetery-tours/

You may be able to save a bit using discount coupons:

The Saint Charles Streetcar is the oldest continuously operating street railway in the world and is a “tourist attraction” in its own right. It is part of the public transit system, as are the Canal Street and Riverfront streetcar lines: www.norta.com

There is always music, but the bands change: Go to www.bestofneworleans.com and click on Music then Listings or to www.offbeat.com and click on Listings, then Music.

Music clubs often advertise “No Cover”, meaning there is no charge for entering. However, clubs with “No Cover” often require that customers buy a beverage each for every “set” of music (which can be every 20 minutes) so KNOW THE PRICE before you sit down. Clubs do that because some people will sit in the club all evening drinking nothing (clubs only make money from the drinks they sell – not from the music). It is also a good idea to pay for each round of drinks (in clubs on Bourbon Street) as it is delivered so there can’t be any confusion at the end of the evening.

An incomplete guide to bars & clubs:

Some famous drinks are VERY potent compared with regular cocktails that have only 1 to 1 ½ ounces of alcohol. For example, a Hurricane is basically 3 or 4 ounces of rum in something like red Kool-Aid, and a Hand Grenade has at least 4 ½ ounces of Everclear + rum + vodka mixed with melon liquor. They don’t necessarily taste like an alcoholic beverage and it is easy to over-indulge.

Wander around the French Quarter, enjoy the architecture, watch the street entertainers (do tip), and visit some of the historic buildings that have been turned into museums (go to www.frenchquarter.com and click on Historic Attractions).

If someone says something to you like “I bet $ 5 I can tell you where you got them shoes”, the answer is “I got them on the street/sidewalk in New Orleans”.

Cafe du Monde is in the French Quarter and you shouldn’t miss having cafe au lait & beignets (www.cafedumonde.com). Another great coffee shop is the Croissant d’Or (at 617 Ursulines Street), which is open from 7:00am to 2:00pm and has food in addition to pastry.

Visit the Bottom of the Cup tea Room for a reading: http://www.bottomofthecup.com/

The Palm Court restaurant is very nice, has moderate prices, and offers live jazz starting at 8:00pm: 1204 Decatur Street, (504) 525-0200. www.palmcourtjazzcafe.com

Maximo’s Italian Grill has great food and atmosphere: 1117 Decatur Street in the French Quarter, (504) 586-8883. www.maximosgrill.com

Cafe Degas is a very French restaurant near City Park at 3127 Esplanade – which is not within walking distance of downtown (5 to 10 minutes by taxi). They are closed on Mondays & Tuesdays (504) 945-5635). www.cafedegas.com

The Napoleon House restaurant is at 500 Chartres Street in the FQ, and has a menu of great local dishes: www.napoleonhouse.com

Buffa’s is a neighborhood restaurant at 1001 Esplanade Avenue that is open 27/7 and has live entertainment: www.buffasrestaurant.com

More restaurant suggestions: http://www.10best.com/New_Orleans,LA/Restaurants/

Preservation Hall has traditional live Jazz, and doesn’t serve alcohol so all ages are welcome: www.preservationhall.com

New Orleans has ballet, opera, a symphony orchestra, and theatre:

www.nobadance.com
www.neworleansopera.org
www.lpomusic.com
www.lepetittheatre.com

There is a free ferry across the Mississippi at the “foot” of Canal Street. It is a short trip but like a harbor cruise w/o a guide: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/canal_street_ferry

The Aquarium, Audubon Zoo, and the new Insectarium are world-class attractions (www.auduboninstitute.org) and you should see them if you can. The Zoo is several miles from downtown. You can drive to the Zoo (which has free parking) or take public transit from the French Quarter.

Go to www.neworleansmuseums.com for info on museums.

Harrah’s Casino is in the Central Business District: www.harrahs.com (age 21 required for entry)

New Orleans City Park has a variety of attractions + free parking. (www.neworleanscitypark.com).

I hope you have a great time!

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : is there a bible in sections on PDF I can download for free?

I want to be able to read the bible on my Treo 650. I know i can buy a card, but I want to use my 1G card so I can keep everything else available as well. I downloaded the whole bible on PDF and it was too big for my palm, so I need sets of books or books. How to break up my big pdf would help also. Thank you.

Answer by lalala_lander
I’m sure you could find a bible in text format, not PDF.
The reasons to use PDF is to see the original book – its virtually scans from the physical book, you dont really need them.

What you should look for is a simple text, which will display great on your treo.

Also point of interest, opening large text files is for some reason always better in a web browser, then the default text editor.

Answer by matthew220
I agree with lalala lander. You should use something other than PDF.
Olive Tree is a web site that has free software.
You will need to download the BibleReader™ 3.62 for Palm OS and a free version of the Bible text.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : How much does a professional psychic charge?

For a private party. Someone that does tarot, palm reading, etc. Is there a standard hourly rate? Do you tip? How much?
A ballpark figure…$ 25/hr…$ 100/hr???

Answer by Sadhara Satguru
Hello

That would depend on who you get, where you live etc.

You often find that the host goes free, most psychic have set rates & no you don’t tip.
