Spirits - The Cocktail And Ghost Crawl
The advantage to having done more pub crawls than anyone else in the city, is that I have the widest range of classic bars, and the best bartenders in the city, at my disposal. These people are my friends. New Orleans is a cocktail town, with reason. This is an evening of classic concoctions, ghost stories, city history, drinking tales, and voodoo. I'll tie all of these points together into a cohesive experience of chills, laughs, and must-have drink suggestions. This is still well-researched history, but I'm here to make it fun. Let me save you from the dull recitation of New Orleans' bullet points - I put on a show. This is storytelling, and through these stories, I will help you connect with one of the most amazing cities on the planet. I will balance the tour locations based on group interest. This is an introduction to some of the important signature drinks of New Orleans. However, this is definitely unpretentious. You are not required to buy anything, drink what you wish. In between bars, we will visit some historical, and haunted locations, while I weave all the content into a well-rounded evening. This is perfect for groups with a wide range of interests...except vampire stories, I don't do vampire stories, those are fabrications. Also,it is logistically easier to let you buy your own drinks, I don't provide them. Group sizes are small, under 15, and not city law 28.

Second Line Tour & Music Experience
So you will experience a New Orleans Second Line Parade or Second Line Experience with one of the Former "Kings" of " Treme " There are dozens of different second line parades put on throughout the year, usually on Sunday afternoons, and held in the French Quarter and neighborhoods all across the city.

The parades are not tied to any particular event, holiday or commemoration; rather, they are generally held for their own sake and to let the good times roll. Second lines trace their roots back to the 19th century and the fraternal societies and neighborhood organizations that collectively provided insurance and burial services to members, especially among the African American community. - BOOK THIS EXPERIENCE !!!
