Since I live in New Orleans half the week, I have been trying to find some great places to work.
1. rue de la course - magazine st
Hands down my favorite coffee shop in New Orleans. I am usually at the Magazine location on Wed and Thursday. The Coffee is great and it stays open to 12am.
2. The balcony bar - magazine st
After work, its nice to grab a beer, sit on the balcony and answer email. Nothing beats the view or the happy hour specials.
3. Yogurt - Maple St
Its nice to grab a wrap and sit on the street and work. They just encrypted their WiFi, which sucks because I used to sit in the Starbucks and use it.
4. St. Charles Street Car
When I am going to be downtown the whole day I usually take the street car into the CBD. From Louisiana on, I can grab the earthlink WiFi and answer emails. The connection is very unstable but I can get emails in and out.
5. ??? I need to find a good restaurant like the chimes that it acceptable to work on a laptop. I tried to do this in Cooter Browns, which has WiFi and everyone looked at me like I was nuts. I pulled my laptop out at the Rusty Nail and some punk made a smart ass comment. I thought about smashing my laptop into his face which is why I have taken the nail out of the running. The search continues...
