  1. Hey there, You’ve performed a fantastic job. I’ll certainly digg it and personally recommend to my friends. I’m confident they’ll be benefited from this web site.

  2. Just wanna admit that this is invaluable , Thanks for taking your time to write this.

  3. Dear Preshallfoundation,
    This might be off topic, however, I’ll be visiting NOLA with my three kids – but it looks like most of the music venues are 18+.
    Even Tipitina’s Fais Do Do is 18+!

    Any places we can catch good music? Preservation Hall – I know… How about the Rock and Bowl? Can you listen to the bands while bowling, or is it s seperate space?

    Any good music clubs that are also restaurants? Snug Harbor?
    All the Best

    • Hi there!

      No worries about the off topic comment, we want to make sure your kids will enjoy some NOLA music. First, how old are your kids? Aside from Preservation Hall, Rock ‘n’ Bowl offers live music in addition to bowling (which is a great option for local music). You also might try the Palm Court Jazz Cafe, Snug Harbor, and The Big Top. The general rule of thumb in the city of New Orleans is that as long as food is served at a venue, your child will be allowed to get it.

      Hope this helps you out!

  4. Sweet website , super design and style , rattling clean and apply pleasant.
