With trumpeters sweating while they invoke the spirit of Louis Armstrong in the French Quarter, and with connoisseurs and dilettantes alike sweating through their white linen while cruising galleries in the arts district. Hot enough for you? Of course, that's not all there is to New Orleans in early August. We don't propose to cover everything in town in the next half-hour, but we do what we can. No sweat; it's <em>All Things New Orleans</em>.

We leave your passions up to you, here on<em> All Things New Orleans.</em> Fri, 06 Jul 2012 16:35:12 +0000 WWNO Staff 15233 at http://wwno.org Foreign Artists Visit Louisiana and the Times-Picayune Slowly Dissolves http://wwno.org/post/foreign-artists-visit-louisiana-and-times-picayune-slowly-dissolves <p>It&#39;s time for the final spring edition of All Things New Orleans for 2012.
