We dug around for the best of what New Orleans has to offer each week so you don't have to.

NOLAlicious was an award-winning, free weekly email newsletter delivered to your inbox on Tuesdays. We gave you five things to do, eat and see around town every week.

Whether you're a native New Orleanian, a longterm transplant, new to the city (like us), a tourist or an expat looking to keep your finger on the pulse, we provided a simple and fun resource to help guide you into your own New Orleans adventures, brought to you with the eye of a tourist and the soul of a native.



Sloane Berrent

Sloane Berrent, Co-Founder and Co-Editor

A love letter and the warm welcome of the entrepreneurial community along with plentiful volunteer opportunities, sweet lure of dive bars, live music joints and diners convinced Sloane to call New Orleans home. A new resident of the French Quarter, Sloane is always up for a new adventure and partners-in-crime to join her. She would love to hear what your favorite haunts are to add her ever-growing list of “musts” in New Orleans. And yes, you better believe there is a list.

Taylor Davidson

Taylor Davidson, Co-Founder and Co-Editor

Proud of his so-claimed Southern heritage, shaped by a formative youth in Virginia, the Bahamas and London, energized and tired from a recent fourteen months of traveling across the USA and around the world, Taylor came to New Orleans dying to establish a home and a life in a city where people love their city like no other. Now evangelizing the beauty and opportunities in New Orleans from New York City, Taylor can often be seen with a camera and a whisky, often at the same time. Please help him enjoy both.

Carl Nelson

Carl Nelson, Co-Founder and Co-Editor

Decided to show up once in New Orleans for the Ultimate Lindy Hop Showdown after a year on the road and never really left. The Crescent City has claimed this vagabond dancer; taken in by the live jazz spilling onto streets, the city's nightlife and vibrant culture. Often found dancing to hot jazz all through the night on Frenchman St. or chilling on an orange couch in the Marigny. The hidden gems of food, café or jazz are the secrets he seeks.

Martin Strickland, Writer

Hailing from Alabama, Martin came to New Orleans after college to work and play. Lucky for him, the city has offered him both, usually intertwining them. Working on Frenchmen Street and living in the Garden District, Martin tries to experience all aspects of NOLA on a daily basis, from breakfast on Magazine to cocktails on Charters and music in the Marigny. He tries to experience new events and people every week, and in this great city it's never a hard goal to accomplish.

Emily Jensen

Emily Jensen, Intern

Fresh from the west coast, Emily Jensen drove to New Orleans with a suitcase and a guitar to flee the post-college 9-5 pipeline. She is madly in love with the Big Easy – its rhythm, its flavor, and more than anything else its people. Find her belting out folk tunes in the Marigny, hustling for prisoner’s rights with her insane activist posse, and grinning with a glass of Maker’s, drinking in the exquisite strangeness of her favorite city in the world.

Kat Stromquist, Alumni

Chicago transplant and writer Kat Stromquist has abandoned all hope of ever leaving New Orleans. Now trapped in the city's gravitational pull, she writes poetry and contributes to Gambit Weekly and noladefender.com. Whenever escape tempts her, spring festivals, the Mississippi at night, and Pal's Lounge help remind her why New Orleans will always be home.
