New Orleans Good Good is an online arts & entertainment magazine that introduces readers to those only-in-New Orleans people, traditions, events you always wanted to know about – and the mainstream media doesn’t cover.
So much of what makes life entertaining in New Orleans are the outlandish characters, colorful history, unique rituals and places local folks know by virtue of living here. Its not what the Office of Tourism or the major news stations promote; but rather those things you hear about through ‘who you know’, through word of mouth.
Learn not only where to find Sunday parades but get to know our city’s second line royalty: the social aid and pleasure club leaders and members, brass band musicians, umbrella and sash artisans and clubhouse bar owners. Meet some of the most beloved home cooks from around the city and learn their secrets to making their favorite local dishes. Find out what’s really going on at that corner storefront with no name on the building and a line of folks wrapped around the block every Friday afternoon. (Now you culture preservation stalwarts need not worry… that which needs to be kept off the radar will not be revealed. But those lesser-known society stars that can stand a little spotlight on them are gonna get it!)
In addition to the featuring the grass roots folks and culture of New Orleans, Good Good is publishing the best up-to-the-minute information on our newest addition to the local entertainment scene: Hollywood South. Find out how to get industry jobs, training opportunities, representation and more…
