Any shops in New Orleans to check out?

Recommended Posts

DOC Don Lucas Tattooing

3807 Airline Dr

Metairie, LA 70001

(504) 833-0190

Don has a museum with lots of cool stuff and if ya call ahead he will answer as the phone rings into his house if he's not at the shop. Don was at Paul Rogers side when he passed so that should be enough to know that you will find "cool" and good mojo.

Electric Ladyland is the only place I'd go. There's a guy there named Lester who does great work. He used to work at Inksmith. They are located on Frenchman st I believe. Also Steve Tiberi is about to be there doing a guest spot if you're into his stuff.

You really can't go wrong with any restaurant in NOLA. Po boys and oysters are a must! Cochon was one of our fave meals- loved the crispy pig ears. And the swamp tour if you have time was a blast. Have fun!

I know the shop has already been said, but when I went to visit New Orleans. I liked Electric Ladyland. I loved all the flash that was on the wall and the atmosphere of the shop. Everyone there was really friendly to me and showed me around the place. :)

There's a dive there called COOP'S PLACE that has the best Jambalaya I've ever had. I've been eating there for probably 15 years. Last time I went to NOLA, I ate there six times in five days.

Jambalayas my shit. Well check it out and become the newest addicts

We're getting catfish at pat o'briens as I type.

I took my fiancee there the day she turned 21 and got her LOADED on hurricanes. At 10am.

She can handle one drink before she's wrecked, so four or five ounces of rum on an empty stomach led to hilarity. Have a good vacation, dude, and if Annette is at Ladyland, tell her I said hey.
