Big Freedia's Guide to New Orleans
Freedia has access to some (ahem) rarely seen corners and cracks of the (ahem) Crescent City, so we hit her up for recommendations of the best spots to hit in New Orleans.
[Eds. Note: If you go to a Big Freedia show, you're basically guaranteed a wiggling parade of rears, buns, and dutch dumplings. As the reigning queen of NOLA bounce, Freedia has access to some (ahem) rarely seen corners and cracks of the (ahem) Crescent City. On March 8 and 9, we'll be heading down to New Orleans for the BUKU Music and Art Project, and Big Freedia will be presiding. Since we're snobby East Coast elites, we decided to hit her up to get her recommendations for the best spots to hit while we're down there. A few days later, we had Big Freedia's Guide to New Orleans in our inbox, and we're glad to share it with you today.]
BEST BOUNCE CLUB IN NOLA
Encore on Tulane Avenue. It's the livest club in New Orleans right now. Celebrities come through and everything. (3940 Tulane Avenue)
BEST SPOT TO EAT CAJUN FOOD
Deanie's Seafood, for their selection of gumbos and jambalaya. There's just nothing like it, and it's very authentic New Orleans-style food. (841 Iberville Street)
Cajun Seafood on North Claiborne is so delicious. It's the best place for its selection of seafood. (1479 North Claiborne)
BEST LATE NIGHT TREAT AFTER A NIGHT AT THE CLUB
Cafe Du Monde is the best place after a night at the club for the best hot chocolate, coffee, and chocolate. (800 Decatur Street)
BEST DOG GROOMER
I travel with my babies sometimes, so if others do too, is the best place to get your little ones looking pretty. (4554 Downman Road)
BEST PLACE TO GET YOUR PARTY CO-ORDINATED
Divas Creations, of course, that's my company! We'll decorate your party or event and get it looking so festive.
You can catch Big Freedia in New Orleans at the BUKU Music & Art Project on March 8 and 9.
