An effervescent French Quarter perambulation. An itinerant happy hour. Sparkling narrative guaranteed.
This is a walking tour, starting at the Napoleon House, ending at the French 75 bar at Arnaud's restaurant, both in the French Quarter. Many sites of historic and artistic interest are covered, notably including 4 of the absolute best "saloons" you've never heard of.
While we're at it, let's talk about women. From the Casket Girls to Josie Arlington to Mother Cabrini, the civilizing influences of the stronger sex are ever-present in the Vieux Carre. How'd they do it? Let's ask around.
