“Soul is Waterproof”

The ACOG Resource Center staff has surfed the Web and compiled an extensive list of quality Web sites of places, services, and activities in New Orleans that may be of interest to this year’s ACM attendees. Each site has been reviewed for it timeliness, accuracy, and usefulness. Topics include public transportation, attractions, shopping, and restaurants. And don’t forget to check out theBourbon Street webcam and the muffuletta sandwich site.
