So I got a call today and I'll be getting an official job offer tomorrow!
It's gonna take me to the Big Easy, New Orleans. Being a northern boy my whole life, I know absolutely nothing about the area where I will likely end up. A quick google mapping shows me that the company has two addresses in the area, one is in Avondale, one is in Slidell but aside from seeing them on a map this means nothing to me.
What I could really use is some advice on the neighborhoods in the area in terms of which ones are nicer, which ones I should avoid like Paris Hilton's cooch, which are outrageously expensive, etc. Preferably somewhere where I won't be swamped every year come Mardi Gras (I've seen the GGW videos, I know how bad that shit gets!). Any and all advice is appreciated.
Also, the last thing I could use is advice for finding and getting a new place in a new state on a relatively fast schedule. At the very least my lease in my current apartment is up in a month so I need a new place, get approved, and move in something like a 3-week period. Getting my stuff OUT of Delaware will be easy enough, its everything on the other side that I'm unsure of.
Thanks in advance for any advice guys... I'm more than a little out of my league right now and need to jack myself up to the majors.
