Everyone loves us and loves talking about us. Here’s what they said lately:

Four Chefs Share A Meal

In a city that loves food as much as we do, it’s a delight to dish about what makes New Orleans one of the most sought after locales to dine. Fine or unrefined, it’s still the best. CNN had a seat at the table with Leah Chase, Emeril Lagasse, Donald Link and Nina Compton to “talk about their unique journeys, both to restaurant kitchens and to the extraordinary city of New Orleans.” Click/Tap to Watch

Short-Term Rentals

AirbnB and short-term rentals in New Orleans is a story that gets a lot of attention locally with large swaths of residents opposing and favoring the practice. CBS News put the spotlight on the potential tightening of rules for it. Because the opinions on short-term rentals gets hot in other cities, the Crescent City is in the spotlight on what could be in store elsewhere.

Bourbon Street recognized for draaanks, duh

CNBC celebrates the renowned streets around the world. At the top of the list is the booze-fueled Bourbon Street. They make note of its age and reputation, highlight Lafitte’s and advises folks to “get in the NOLA spirit” and buy a hand grenade. Remember though, it’s a marathon and not sprint.

WOOOOOoooooo! ‘PAR-TAY’!

Friends at Cosmo (and us) want folks to have the most swellest of times here. The fashion mag knows New Orleans is THE best spot to pass a time for a bachelorette party, and because there is beaucoup to do, they help the squad for the bride-to-be get the most of it. They have a solid guide for New Orleans bachelorettes for “the Bride Who Loves to PAR-TAY.”

Get your fuel for your “Woo!” here.

Hi. I’m Clint.
I’m the Local Market Manager for Very Local New Orleans. I’ve lived in New Orleans since 2001 and been living my best life in this rad place since that year.
I have 10 years of broadcast journalism and digital media experience. Before Very Local New Orleans, I worked for WDSU-TV – producing, product developing, digital media managing– I’ve done it all. I’ve seen first-hand the trials we’ve suffered in this city and the celebrations we’ve enjoyed. I love New Orleans. It’s home.
I’m going to work my hardest to bring you the content and experiences you care about to live your best life here in one of the best cities on the planet.
I love finding things to do here – concerts, food, drinks, nerding out, etc. And I love sharing those things with others.
