People are always saying to me, “Joe, where do we find other Lower Decatur Street communities on the internet?”. Well, there are a few interesting places to look my friends.
LiveJournal.com hosts this lively online communty that also discusses life around the neighborhood. There are up to the minute posts for many events in the area, almost always posted by devoted fans. Here, you’ll find movie listings for Mojo Lounge’s Tuesday Movie Night with Mark. All of the notable events at the Whirling Dervish are announced here as well.
There is also an RSS feed that you can find in the side bar of this site.
Not surprisingly you’ll find the neighborhood well represented on this wildy popular social networking site. Here’s who I found.
Lower Decatur Group – A MySpace group for folks in the area to meet, many of the same folks who do the LiveJournal group.
LowerDecatur.com – We have a growing group of friends on MySpace as well.
Many of the neighborhood merchants have their own unique MySpace profiles.
The Louisiana Pizza Kitchen
Mary Jane’s Emporium
Molly’s at the Market

Ok, everybody loves a parade, right? And everybody loves Lower Decatur, right? So, a parade on Lower Decatur is a natural, right? Well, hold on to your costumes kids, we’ve got two this year.
The first is the “666th annual Halloween Parade” leaving Flanagan’s Pub, 625 St. Phillip Street, at 10pm on Saturday, October 28th, ending at the Whirling Dervish, 1135 Decatur Street. There the party will rage into the wee hours.
The second parade is the traditional “Jim Monaghan’s Halloween Parade” on ,oddly enough, Halloween. That’s Tuesday, October 31st at 5:30pm leaving from Molly’s , 1107 Decatur Street, and wandering around the quarter before heading back to Molly’s.

While putting the together the interactive map for the site it came to my attention that there are a whole bunch of intentionally open wireless access points. I’d be willing to bet that there are more here in these few blocks than any other part of the city. So, somebody has to say it.
“Lower Decatur Street is New Orleans’ WiFi Hotspot!”
Here’s the current list:
- Cafe Envie – 1241 Decatur Street
- Coop’s Place – 1109 Decatur Street
- J.C. Grocery Deli – 65 French Market Place
- Mojo Lounge & Cafe – 1140 Decatur Street
- Turtle Bay – 1119 Decatur Street
- Whirling Dervish – 1135 Decatur Street
Most of the access points listed are usable in neighboring establishments.
UPDATE: Added the Whirling Dervish to the list. Thanks, Cian
