Rumor has it there will eventually be one in Metairie near Houma Blvd on Vets: www.plus1gaming.com

But, their space looks pretty cramped [I drove by the other day], and they're not even open yet.

Aside from that, there's basically nothing.

If you're in town TONIGHT, there's a group of us meeting at Rue De La Course in Uptown New Orleans [corner of Oak St. and Carrollton St. in the Riverbend].

Another out-of-towner will be there:

Sunday afternoon, there should be some gaming in River Ridge [10 miles the OTHER way from the game-night tonight]. Check this thread for details.

Cool. I'll be heading down there in the morning. Glad to see there is a game group though. My wife's applying for Grad School at Tulane so we might be down there permanatly this fall

There are at least two or three other groups in addition to this Uptown group.

I head a group that meets in Slidell [we'd actually be meeting this weekend if I didn't have a wedding shower to go to].

Then there's the River Ridge group I mentioned as well as a West Bank group.

None of these are particularly large [my group on the Northshore averages around 4-5 people, the most has been 9-10; the River Ridge group is around 5 or 6 on a good day; I don't know about the Uptown group], but we're trying to keep the faith, as it were.

Yep, they're open and it's a wonderful shop. Should have updated this thread.

We're there at least every other week. If anyone saw us Saturday at BGG.con, we were representing in our bright blue +1 t-shirts.
