“Treme:” The HBO Show

If you like NOLA, you gotta watch “Treme.” Not only is the writing great, but you’ll enjoy the music and the locales. As of Oct. 2012, “Treme” is in the middle of its third season; you can watch the first two seasons on HBO Go or you can get the DVDs. runs a weekly recap of the show, offering additional information and insights on each episode.

These two CDs are compilations of songs from each of the first two seasons. John Boutte’s “Treme Song” serves as the theme song. “This City Will Never Die,” written by Steve Earle, is a perfect synopsis of post-Katrina New Orleans.

This link is for the Season 1 CD.

This link is for the Season 2 CD.

There are several blogs dedicated to “Treme” or subjects related to the show, but this is one of the best: is operated by the Times-Picayune, New Orleans’ newspaper. I use it for keeping up with the news of the day in New Orleans, as well as finding the latest entertainment offerings and getting updates on the Saints:

All Things New Orleans

This is a podcast of the WWNO public radio production. It’s a little news, a little music, a little culture … a little bit about a lot of things. It’s a great way to stay current on what’s happening in New Orleans.

This is the official tourism website of the City of New Orleans. It has a good calendar of events and plenty of useful information on New Orleans.

Oysters galore

Oysters may be an acquired taste, and New Orleans is a great place to acquire the taste. Try char-broiled or char-grilled oysters any time they are on the menu. Drago’s at the Hilton at the convention center has some great char-broiled oysters. Check out this link for some really unique variations:
