Autosave-File vom d-lab2/3 der AgfaPhoto GmbHWell, my fave hangout, especially after DONNA’S closed its doors, is this TREME institution. Like DONNA’S, this is the place where so many of the musicians I’ve met in New Orleans visit, and perform. This is a regular stop for many of the 6TH WARD SECOND LINES. This is the place that separates New Orleans tourists from New Orleans Lovers!! When I first started hanging here, White taxicab drivers hesitated, even refused to bring me! But since this is the regular Wednesday night spot for THE TREME BRASS BAND to play, and was featured in HBO’s TREME series, many more White people, young people, visit on Wednesday night! Still, the rest of the week finds mostly locals enjoying the other activities there and nearby. The owner*, “CHINE,” pronounced, “Chinese” without the “s,” has been trying to balance the needs of her local Black community, vs her desire to actually earn a living. When I am asked about New Orleans entertainment options, I always recommend visiting this spot on a Wednesday night to enjoy THE TREME BRASS BAND.
