Here in New Orleans, we are truly fortunate. Not only do we have amazing food, music, football and people, we have a vibrant nightlife…And no, I’m not just talking about bars.

Over the past 3 years, I have gradually ventured outside of my comfortable Loyola “bubble” to explore all that New Orleans has to offer. And let me tell you, it’s been a blast.

I encourage you to grab a buddy and journey outside the bubble — take the streetcar all the way downtown and experience all that New Orleans truly is.

We aren’t just $1 beers, fifty cent shots and crazy late nights. While this can be amusing every once in a while, I would be selling New Orleans short to say that’s who were are.

To me, New Orleans is the most eccentric and lively city in the world — New Orleanians come alive at night. We have picturesque landscapes (p. 3), talented artists and dancers (p. 4-5) an accepting community (p. 6), and a fascinating haunted history (p. 7).

Although I sound slightly like a New Orleans tourism representative, trust me. Peruse The Wolf and see for yourself! You’ll be surprised to see what happens when the sun goes down.
