    U want to be cool and live near the action, but are really uncool middleclass folk interfering with local ordinances in regard to noise levels from local clubs which have been in the hood for decades.
    Isn’t this the reason u moved, u want peace and quite move uptown….NOLA is a big town.
    Visitors come to NOLA for music and the good times
    Times are tough enough without this belly ache which will impact NOLA economy
    You know what u get when u move near a honky tonk and if u cant stand the heat in the kitchen get out.

    Support local musicians………
    Keep on Keeping on………………..Deltawine
