"A Friend in New Orleans", hosted by actor John Goodman and New Orleans resident Chappy Hardy, is everything a city travel guide should be (but rarely is). Aimed at newcomers, as well as those folks who "walk up and down Bourbon Street a few times, throw up on their shoes, go home, and think they've seen New Orleans," A Friend in New Orleans offers an insider's guide to the best eating, drinking, dancing, and lodging in the city, as well as tips on a number of cultural and historical landmarks (like the grave of voodoo queen Marie Laveau, which you don't want to visit at night. With help from fellow entertainers Helen Mirren, John Larroquette, Taylor Hackford, Pete Fountain, and Irma Thomas, Goodman and Hardy take viewers on the requisite stroll through the city.
