How hard will it be for me to find a part-time job, probably working weekends and nights? Right now I’m a tour guide and have had my current job for almost 5 years, and will have a good reference. I also have hotel experience from years ago. Unfortunately, no real food service experience except for a job at a pizza place when I was a teenager, but I’m happy to learn if someone will give me a chance. Will I have a hard time getting a job?

I read that groceries are expensive in New Orleans, is that the case? Any ballpark numbers you want to throw out about how much groceries might be for a family of five? Are the cost of living calculators to be trusted?

I am not totally sure about jobs but I would imagine there are enough hotels, restaurants, and other tourist related things in this city that you can find a job relatively quickly.

As for groceries, maybe check out these weekly specials at Rouses and Winn-Dixie to give you an idea.
