For Visiting Comics

Thinking about coming through New Orleans to do some comedy? Hell yeah! It's always a good time here. In fact, there's so much to do here that we put together a list of the places us locals like to go and places we like to tell visitors to go check out. Also, please, try to find someone to stay with here. Most of us have space to put up a couple comics. Please do not use AirBNB in New Orleans. It's a long story, but basically, it's killing the ability for anyone to afford housing and is ruining our neighborhoods. We'll find you a couch or a bed or an air mattress that won't fuck up our economy.

Pharmacy Museum

514 Chartres St. (CHART-urz) in French Quarter
This place is weird and interesting. It's got a bunch of old medical equipment and explainations of old shcool medicine. You can walk through yourself or there's a guided tour at 1pm. Benjamin didn't specifically recommend being high here, but it'd probably be tight. Admission: $5. Hours: Tues - Sat, 10am - 4pm. No guided tour Saturdays.
