Complete guide to WNST New Orleans parties here…

Posted on 01 February 2013 by Nestor Aparicio

Clearly, WNST.net is throwing the biggest parties in New Orleans this weekend for the Super Bowl and the amazing fun we all plan to have here in The Big Easy is made even better when you participate and join us for biggest Baltimore Ravens fan celebrations ever.

You can purchase our WNST V.I.P. Super Party wristbands that give you special access at ALL of our parties as well as several bars on Bourbon Street for $115.70 by clicking here: http://wnst.net/brian-billick/buy-our-wnst-super-v-i-p-party-pass-and-soak-up-the-excitement-of-new-orleans/

We have FREE EVENTS every day and you can buy tickets at the door with cash only at all of our ticketed events as well. So, if you’re feeling spontaneous and looking to spend quality, memorable time with Baltimore Ravens fans, this is our schedule of events:

 

FRIDAY NIGHT:

A free event from 6 p.m. til ??? at Empire (located at 300 Decatur) in the French Quarter. This bar is COMPLETELY purple and will be the pickup site for all who purchased WNST V.I.P. Party wristbands for admission to all of our weekend activities. Great food, cold beer and awesome music. This is our “meet and greet” but you’re welcomed and encouraged to party all night with us in the heart of New Orleans. And, yes, the picture here is what Empire looks like on the inside. It’s all purple already!

 

SATURDAY (Two events)

DAY: Our purple pep rally and outdoor cookout begins at noon and is FREE AND OPEN to all Baltimore Ravens fans. WNST partner and Super Bowl-winning head coach Brian Billick will be on hand to meet and greet all of the purple faithful. Come to Toulouse at The River and we’ll be under the green and white pavilion that sits behind Jackson Brewery and the Famous Gumbo Pot. If you can see the giant Houston Oilers-style derrick, you’re almost there. Just walk to the water past Decatur and look for the Steamboat Natchez riverboat! This is also the site of Sunday’s party!

Our cruise on the Steamboat Natchez is a ticketed event and you’re welcome to join us for a delicious jazz lunch and cruise from 2:30 ’til 4:30 on the Mississippi. Boarding begins at 2 p.m. and tickets are $60. For more information is available here: http://wnst.net/top-story/crabs-n-beer/cruise-mississippi-natchez-on-super-saturday-in-nola-with-billick-wnst/

 

NIGHT: Doors open at 7 p.m. at The Howlin’ Wolf for a gigantic Baltimore Ravens fan celebration and concert with New Orleans locals and Grammy Award winning Rebirth Brass Band (show starts at 11 p.m.). Cold beer, great Cajun food and awesome music and dancing all night. This is a ticketed event ($25) and a two-day pass can be purchased for $40 for both big nights at the “purple ground zero” for all Ravens fans in New Orleans here: http://wnst.net/nfl/legendary-howlin-wolf-will-be-purple-ground-zero-for-all-baltimore-ravens-fans-in-nola/

 

SUNDAY (Three events)

Our pre-game tailgate and purple march are ABSOLUTELY FREE AND OPEN TO ALL BALTIMORE RAVENS FANS!!!

Beginning at 10 a.m. on gameday, we’ll have cold beer, drinks, great food and awesome purple music from legendary DJ Bobby Nyk at the foot of Woldenberg Park. Come to Toulouse at The River and we’ll be under the green and white pavilion that sits behind Jackson Brewery and the Famous Gumbo Pot. If you can see the giant Houston Oilers-style derrick, you’re almost there. Just walk to the water past Decatur and look for the Steamboat Natchez riverboat!

The Natchez will serve as a giant bar all day and all Baltimore Ravens fans are welcome to board the boat, dance and drink all afternoon leading up to our big purple stampede up Poydras Street to win the Lombardi Trophy.

There will be five hours of partying before we begin our historic Mardi Gras march to the Superdome at 2:52 p.m. to honor Ray Lewis. All details, maps and information regarding the march are here: http://wnst.net/nfl/gigantic-purple-march-to-honor-ray-lewis-set-for-252-p-m-sunday-in-new-orleans/

If you are NOT going to the Super Bowl and want to watch the game with all Baltimore Ravens fans, you’ll want to head to The Howlin’ Wolf (S. Peters & St. Joseph) in The Warehouse District where the game will be shown on the big screen.

Our post-game celebration will commence at 10 p.m. and this is a TICKETED event with the 8 Ball Brass Band playing the victory party. Advance tickets are $25 but you can purchase a two-day pass for Saturday/Sunday nights concerts here: http://wnst.net/nfl/legendary-howlin-wolf-will-be-purple-ground-zero-for-all-baltimore-ravens-fans-in-nola/

New Orleans never seems to shut down or sleep.

And when the Baltimore Ravens win this Super Bowl title, we expect it to be a long, long night of partying at The Howlin’ Wolf into the wee hours.

Legendary Howlin’ Wolf will be Purple Ground Zero for all Baltimore Ravens fans in NOLA

Legendary Howlin’ Wolf will be Purple Ground Zero for all Baltimore Ravens fans in NOLA

Posted on 25 January 2013 by Nestor Aparicio

Remember Whiskey Joe’s? Well, this time the name to remember if you’re a Baltimore Ravens fan is The Howlin’ Wolf in The Warehouse District in New Orleans, which will serves as the “Purple Ground Zero” for all who’ve ever enjoyed crabs, beer and Baltimore football on the shores of the Chesapeake Bay.

Here’s a link to learn more about The Howlin’ Wolf, a legendary place for music in New Orleans that will be a round-the-clock purple palace catering to Baltimore fans with legendary Louisiana hospitality, food and music.

If you’re on the WNST trips or shuttles coming from the Gulf Coast, The Howlin’ Wolf will also be where you get dropped and picked up in New Orleans. It is truly our “Purple Ground Zero” for all things Baltimore and Ravens while in The Big Easy.

Now for the important news:

We have a GRAMMY AWARD WINNING group of beloved local New Orleans musicians — Rebirth Brass Band will be rocking our Saturday night Purple Throwdown in The Crescent City.

 

Here’s video of them crushing Bourbon Street four years ago:

 

We’re wondering if they can learn Seven Nations Army?

We’re giving them a week!

The doors open at 7 p.m. and Rebirth Brass Band is expected to hit the stage around 11 p.m.

The WNST buses back to Gulfport have suddenly moved to a 1 a.m. departure!

At some point, we have to rest up for our 2:52 p.m. march on the Superdome to honor Ray Lewis on Super Bowl gameday.

 

On Sunday night…after we win the Super Bowl, we’ll return to The Howlin’ Wolf for a victory party to remember with the Hot 8 Brass Band, another awesome New Orleans act that will provide celebration music while the libations flow and the final dance of Ray Lewis’ career has been danced.

If you have purchased a WNST V.I.P. Purple Party Pass, you already have admission for both nights (and a free bread pudding at The Howlin’ Wolf, if you decide to dine there)!

And if you’re on the WNST Super Trips to New Orleans, you’ll also get the V.I.P. treatment.

Both of these events are open to all adult Baltimore Ravens fans coming to New Orleans for the Super Bowl.

Tickets for each event are $25 (ala carte) in advance.

You can buy each night separately or you can buy the two-day pass for $40, saving you $10 and any words like “sold out.”

Age requirements: Law is no one under the age of 18 can enter The Howlin’ Wolf. If you are 18-to-21, you can enter but not drink. You must be 21 to drink at The Howlin’ Wolf. (During lunch, children are welcome at The Den inside The Howlin’ Wolf, while dining with family.)

When in N’Awlins, do what the locals do, eat what the locals eat and listen to what the locals love.

Old friends and new friends, if you’re a Baltimore Ravens fans on Super Bowl weekend, this is going to be the place to be — just like in Nashville, Charlotte, San Diego, Indianapolis, Pittsburgh, Providence, Boston or anywhere else the purple has played before, when it comes to throwing a party our WNST crew intends to make this little bowl game on bayou, truly SUPER!

This has been one of the truly spectacular weeks of my life planning all of these WNST.net events so that we can set our media and community bar as high as Ray Lewis and Joe Flacco as we plan events that we — as a nation of Baltimore Ravens fans — want to remember for the rest of our lives as well as we party at the Super Bowl in New Orleans.

For all “party only purchasers”: We’ll have will call locations set up in New Orleans at each of our evening events beginning Friday night at Empire (300 Decatur) from 6 til 10pm and again on Saturday from noon til 2 p.m. at Steamboat Nanchez doors (Toulouse at The River). We’ll also have will call at Saturday & Sunday Howlin’ Wolf events right at the front door if those are the only events you’ll be attend with us in The Big Easy.

You’ll have an envelope and a wristband for your purchase. If you have a multiple-day pass, you’ll have a vinyl band that’s non-transferable.
