The New Orleans Police Department is expecting large crowds ahead of the New Year’s Eve celebrations and the Allstate Sugar Bowl, and as a result, has implemented traffic closures and additional parking restrictions in and around the French Quarter. Please pay attention to all traffic and parking notices, as well as directions from NOPD officers.
From Mayor LaToya Cantrell’s Office:
You can learn more about the restrictions at NOLA Ready.
Help Keep Big Easy Magazine Alive
I just wanted to provide an update to where we stand today. A few days ago, we launched a fundraising effort to keep Big a Easy Magazine alive. We determined we would need to raise $10,000, which represents 1/10 of the personal investment I made into the publication. As it stands now, we have raised just over $300 and have set a fundraising deadline of midnight June 1st. Please help us meet our goal. I promise you with your support if we reach our goal, you will be able to continue seeing progressive content about the issues that matter. If we don’t meet our goal, well, in all honesty, those who have an interest in our demise will have won the battle. When we launched the fundraising effort, we got bombarded with remarks such as “see ya,” and “lol.” We cannot allow them to win. Please donate today to keep us alive and support progressive media.
Thank you, Scott Ploof Publisher Big Easy Magazine
