NOLA Valentines Serves Up Sweet Valentine's Day Humor With A New Orleans Twist, 2014

With Valentine's Day fast approaching, it is nice to see an alternative to sentiments of the traditional kind.

NOLA Valentine offers a simple interface and pearls of New Orleans-themed wisdom with a knowing wink to the nomenclature and long-standing local traditions of the Crescent City.

With enough historical content to keep the avid reader or foodie at bay, and any number of  appropriate tributes to favor loved ones.

A nod to notoriously difficult New Orleans street names, here transformed to the whims of fluent locals.

Proper pronunciation of said names, prerequisite for becoming a "true native" of the city, used to navigate without the delighted giggles of locals at your clever attempts in reading street markers.

These names are not for the faint of heart, a rich word base rooted in an amalgam of French, Spanish, African, and Native American influences.
