The Lazy Jack has its aim set on “bringing back the Lakefront” as a popular destination for social gatherings, live music, dining and more. “Growing up in New Orleans meant weekends cruising the Lakefront. Hanging out with your friends, windows down and radios up, seeing and being seen. The Lazy Jack is bringing that back,” the venue says.
As reported by OffBeat.com in 2017, Lakeshore Landing is an entertainment complex launched by Tipitina’s Foundation directors Mary and Roland von Kurnatowski. The couple recently lost ownership of the Tipitina’s music venue due to Roland von Kurnatowski’s alleged acts of fraud.
