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.

Bud's Broiler

500 City Park Ave in MidCity
Bud's is a local institution. They're 24 hours, but if you're eating Bud's when the sun's up, then you fucked up. There's a bunch of options on how to get your burger (the have hot dogs, but fuck that). I go for the #4 with sauce and onions. There's two camps: the sauce or the chili. You can get chili anywhere, get the damn sauce. Bonus level: sauce cheese fries

Gene's

1040 Elysian Fields Ave in Marigny
Gene's makes a decent poboy. It's walking distance from HiHo, Siberia, and Allways so if you're in a bind for some food late at night, here's your spot. I think they're still cash only. And don't forget to grab a frozen daiquiri!

Dive Bar

Markey's

640 Louisa St. in Bywater
It's not a great bar and it's usually really crowded, but, if you've been out drinking in the area and need some late night bar food, Markey's will do.

Mimi's

2601 Royal St. in Marigny
They serve tapas-style food pretty late. The bar's alright. They've got a balcony that makes for a decent hang. Mostly we come here after we're already fucked up and wanna sit down and eat a little something and continue to get fucked up.

Verti Marte

1201 Royal St in French Quarter
If you're in the area and drunk and need food, this is the spot. You might have to wait a bit, but it's worth it. Eat that shit on the sidewalk outside with the other drunk idiots. They don't fuck around in here though, so just order your food and move on.

Vieux Carre Pizza (VOO car-AY)

733 St. Louis St. in French Quarter
It's adequate pizza. Sold by the slice, too. Perfect for stumbling through the Quarter and needing some grease to sop up all the poison you poured in yourself.
