Item description for Time Out New Orleans (Time Out Guides) by Time Out...
Local writers cover every inch of the Big Easy, from Bourbon Street to Mardi Gras, in this exciting guide. Authoritative reviews profile Creole and Cajun cooking in depth, from crawfish toufe to gumbo file. The full gamut of nightlife in this city that never sleeps is covered: bars, bowling alleys, arenas, clubs, Cajun venues, zydeco haunts, and more. Here too are such tantalizing diversions as Cajun Country swamp tours, River Road plantation jaunts, and the scenic beaches of the Gulf Coast. Visitors learn not only where to stay, play, and dine in style, but also how to peel a crawfish, scarf an alligator sandwich, and uncover the heart of this fabled town. This edition features new sidebars, photographs, and listings; updated maps; and a new culture chapter for context.

Reviews - What do customers think about Time Out New Orleans (Time Out Guides)?
I love this book! May 12, 2005
This guide is not only helpful, it's absolutely hilarious. The writing is of a much higher level than you'd expect in a standard guide. It's smart, it's brutally honest (when they don't like something, they let you KNOW), and it doesn't pull any punches. New Orleans is a strange and wonderful place, and all guidebooks to it should be this good. But since they aren't, buy this one.
Absolutely the best Mar 28, 2002
Travel guides are always a hit or miss affair: who can tell whether the editors came to town with the same mentality as you? Too many are geared for the lowest form of tourist: the pathetic sheep following the herd. Not so with this guide to New Orleans, which has been our touchstone on four separate trips to the Big Easy.
Thorough, up-to-date, and above all HONEST. Strongly recommended for anyone visiting for the first time, and especially for anyone returning for a more "refined" visit to the city.l
Don't leave home without it!!! Dec 13, 1998
I have been an eternal fan and grateful reader of the Time Out series for years. From their books to their magazines (NYC, Amsterdam & London), they have made my visits quite enjoyable. In Time Out New Orleans they have offerred invaluable choices from food to music to where to get a good cup of "joe." I can't emphasize enough how much one would benefit to heed their suggestions. I just returned from NO in early Dec '98, lucky me that the book came out in time.
