Places to live similar to Savannah, GA?
I loved living in Savannah, GA but had to move for a better job. Are there any other cities in the US resembling Savannah, GA or Charleston, SC?? I love the historic districts. Thanks!!

Answer by NOLA guy
I am not familiar with Savannah or Charleston, so can’t compare.

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

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).

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

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

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)

there is nothing to compare to those jewels of the south. Every place has its historic district, whatever they deem it to be, but there is only one Savannah. And one Charleston. Even San Diego, which is a charming town with an “Old Town” can’t hold a candle except the weather is delightful.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : Consider this poem, please…?

Please give feedback and advice. Thank you.

In spheres of import,I hurl through history-
In molecules of time’s extended hand
Crashed moment to moment through their boundaries
Until I dreamed the atmosphere between,
Nothingness so easily filled my palms
But was as easily lost into itself.
It left no keening scar against my skin
To mark the boundary between two worlds.

Answer by skyblueworld
i like the tone and style of ur poem, except i dont understand the first line: In spheres of import it’s not as clear cut.

Answer by sapphiresecret
It took me awhile to take it in but I really like it. You should include the title, though.

Answer by Jeff R
I love the contrast between “spheres of import,” which seems to refer to large constructed ideas of what is important, and “molecules of time’s extended hand,” which shows the infinitessimal nature of human existence within all of time and space. I interpret the poem as movement between “real” and imagined/dreamt worlds, and within that interpretation, I really like the way the last two lines show those worlds as inseparable within the mind.

Any advice I give will be nitpicky, since you seem to have taken great care with each word choice, each line break, etc. I would like to see a title, which would help to guide the reader a bit more; there are many ways to think of the two worlds (dreams, mental illness, imagination, cultural divide, etc.), and a title might move the reader toward an understanding. The only other comment for improvement is that, in line 3, it is not clear what the referrant for “their” is. (Told you it would be nitpicky…) Is it the spheres’ boundaries, or the molecules’ boundaries, or something else? Two ways to address this come to mind. One is to simply eliminate “their,” thus leaving the issue of what boundaries open to interpretation:

Crashed moment to moment through boundaries
Until I dreamed the atmosphere between

The second would be to tweak the lines to make it clear, such as with:

In spheres of import, I hurl through history –
Crashed moment to moment through boundaries
Between molecules of time’s extended hand

or, if it is the spheres’ boundaries:

In spheres of import, I hurl through history –
Crashed moment to moment through their boundaries
In molecules of time’s extended hand

I trust you will take as a sign of respect that I am touching on so minute a detail. This is a terrific poem, and I am glad to have read it this morning.
