New Orleans featured on Passport to Great Weekends show ~ July 17th

Programming note ~

Samantha Brown does a fun show for the Travel Channel. It's called "Passport to Great Weekends." Guess what marvelous city will be featured on her show this week?!? NOLA! She visits some of my fave places on the program. Just seeing the name Central Grocery makes me drool for a Muffuletta

The show airs Thursday, July 17th, 2008 @ 9:00 pm Central & 10:00 pm Eastern.

New Orleans Weekend

Is the "Big Easy" back on its feet post Hurricane Katrina? Samantha's there to find out. Of course a weekend in New Orleans wouldn't be complete without music, so there's a live jazz concert in the Faubourg Marigny neighborhood, plus dancing at a local bowling alley which doubles as a live music venue. Samantha also gets up close and personal with a gator during a back-water bayou trip, and even helps out on a non-profit project which builds new houses for musicians left homeless by the hurricane.
