Well, hi, Association of Alternative Newsweeklies annual convention, and welcome to New Orleans. It's been too long. You're certainly looking well. Lost weight? Well, whatever you're doing, keep it up.
Sorry to be distracted hosts, but while you're conventioneering in downtown New Orleans today, we're working to get the paper out. You can get your own drinks, can't you? Meanwhile, here's some smartphone downloads and other stuff to help you navigate the city:
• Download the Gambit app (iPad only) for listings, club times, bars, etc.
• Download Forkfly, our local deals app — Forkfly brings you local deals, but without having to register, go through any rigamarole or bring naive merchants to tears and bankruptcy. Just start Forkfly and let the GPS tell you what deals are nearby for the taking.
See you out there soon.
