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.

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!

Tucked into the back of the bar Erin Rose in the Quarter, they serve up some unique and delicious poboys. Glazed pork belly, Jameson grilled cheese, plus classics like fried shrimp.

Parkway Bakery

538 Hagan Ave in MidCity
Everyone has their favorite poboy shop, some have favorites for certain sandwiches. Parkway's one of the tops. The classic roast beef is super good, and their half-and-half fried shrimp/fried oyser is really good (they use cornmeal on their oysters which is the superior, correct way to fry oysters). One special sandwich is the Surf N Turf -- a shrimp poboy with roast beef debris (debris is the gravy and meat parts that fall off the roast beef into the gravy). In New Orleans, a sandwich is "dressed" if it has lettuce, mayo, tomato, and pickles on it. They'll ask you if you want it dressed. Just say yes and don't be a nerd about it.
