Michael Murphy visited New Orleans in 1983 and was, like so many, immediately seduced by its charm. Since moving here, he has written five books about the city. EAT DAT, his first, is about New Orleans food culture and was a #1 best seller on Amazon and tabbed “The #1 essential book to read before coming to New Orleans.” He followed with HEAR DAT, our music, FEAR DAT, voodoo, vampires, graveyards, and ghosts, ALL DAT, everything New Orleans written for the Tricentennial, and 111 PLACES IN NEW ORLEANS YOU MUST NOT MISS, about spots off the beaten path, to visit. He is director of the Tricentennial Tours’ specialists, gives tours himself, provides personal concierge services, and will do anything that’s even close to being legal to advocate for his adopted home.
YEAH, YOU WRITE!
“To get to New Orleans, you don’t pass through anywhere else.”
New Orleans, America’s most unique city, will celebrate its 300th anniversary in 2018. To honor the occasion, NOLA Tricentennial Tours was created to offer exceptional tour guides (or specialists) to bring their passion, experience, and (historically accurate) story telling ability to provide memorable excursions in the Crescent City.
This blog, written by Michael Murphy, a NOLA Tricentennial Tour Specialist and author of five acclaimed books about New Orleans, will offer continuously fresh content to inform, entertain and connect you to New Orleans and our continual parade of festivals, seasoned with bits of uncommon traditions and our remarkable, sometimes bizarre, history.
The name of the blog,Yeah, You Write, is a play on the phrase heard often in New Orleans.
“Yeah, you right” is our way of saying “I agree!”
