  • Dental Art and Your Practice
    (A two-part series on “Dental Associates and Your Practice”)   After thirteen years in private practice and a trainer/consultant for about as long, I have learned one hardbound rule: there is definitely a right and wrong way to go about adding a dental associate to a practice. As a consultant, I frequently answer questions from […]
  • Where can you find Boudin outside of Louisiana?
    Where can you find Boudin outside of Louisiana?  There are several online Cajun stores that you can order from, but the product is frozen and shipped on dry ice.  The Boudin can’t be fresh in my opinion.  Fresh Boudin, there is nothing like it in the world.  You can purchase it fresh on almost every […]
  • Pots and Pans
    There is no one more serious about pots and pans than a gourmet chef.   Pots and pans? My husband has been a gourmet chef all of his 70 plus years.  He is retired now and still cooks each and every day like a professional.  The presentations are nice, sometimes too nice for my waist […]

Who Dat in Vieux Carre

The lingo / slang in New Orleans is very different from anywhere else in the world, even in it’s own USA. My husband is from Lafayette, Louisiana and has lived and worked in New Orleans for over a half of century. His mother spoke beautiful French, a french cajun woman with beautiful blue eyes, while his father who lived to be 104 by the way, spoke the local New Orleanease. Who dat in Vieux Carre, Cher?

Vieux Carre, literally means the “old square” directly related to the French Quarter. I am so interested in the French Quarter ir “Vieux Carre” pronunciation that I simply can not contain my emotion. It’s awesome. Vieux Carre is actually pronounced “Voo Car Ray”.

My son recently traveled to France and had a not-so-minor accident when he was hit by a moped while crossing the street. Luckily my husband spoke enough French, thanks to his dear MawMaw and her linguistic bi-lingual French and New Orleanease. I want to learn French, I want to learn French. Imagine, like a child, I’m here stomping my feet, I want what I want and I want to learn French, hear dat?

If you want to learn more about New Orleans slang you come to the right place. In the weeks and months to come we will be posting all sorts of commentary on the “Who Dat in Vieux Carre” page of our New Orleans Artist.info website. Take ker Cher!
