Chic stores and unique boutiques. Plus a 100-point NOLA to-do list.
“With it’s haunted past, New Orleans will likely have things for you to do after you die,” writes author Beth D’Addona in her new book 100 Things to Do in New Or
leans Before You Die (Reedy Press), “but this lineup is a good start.” D’Addona, who visited the city frequently starting in the 1990s before putting down permanent roots in 2012, checks off a Big Easy bucket list that touches on everything from food and music to sports and shopping. Spotlighting both the obvious (No. 2: “Eat Flaming Bananas Foster at Brennan’s,” shown) and the obscure (No. 70: ”Visit a Washateria Music Shrine”), the Crescent City primer covers it all and then some. You’ll find it on shelves citywide, including the gift shop at the Historic New Orleans Collection (p. 44).
