Chicago and other cities have The Reader. Seattle has The Stranger.

Does NO have a weekly rag thats focused on local happenings, movie reviews etc.

Thanks!

Houston has the Houston Press. Really informational on events in the city.

A friend of mine recommends the Gambit, big-time. He also says that NO is the best place in the U.S. for a writer or other creative person, short of NYC. There's a wonderful community of writers, and it appears to be a real grown-up town, not a place full of post-college kids.

We have a growing number of independent newspapers but the Gambit is by far the best. Every weekend I make sure I get to a coffeeshop and read through the gambit.

..and if the serious stuff gets too much for you, there's always The Levee. Sort of a local version of The Onion.

So glad to hear this because a friend and I are considering NOLA as our future potential new home, but we won't know for sure until we visit in Oct.
We're both aspiring novelist and I'm a reported for a small local weekly newspaper in Oklahoma. Both of us are in dire need of relocation and putting distance between us and our families (not that we don't love 'em but you know the saying, "absence makes the heart grow fonder").
I'm originally from Houston and 2.5 years in rural America has not been good on me.

I'm sure N.O. would be very very good for aspiring writers who don't aspire to being a grunger in Portland OR. (Friend lived there after the floods and felt like an old man among poseurs). He told me that, shortly after people returned to N.O. and there was still no power, etc., a group got together and staged "Waiting for Godot" in some field. It became a weekly show, a rallying place for many of the literary and intellectual community. Where else could that happen?
