NEW ORLEANS (AP) – There is a bar and restaurant in the neighborhood, but on two extended weekends each year, the “regulars” at Liuzza’s by the Track include a crowded crowd of tourists grabbing drinks and walking along the way to hop on and off to eat settle down at the nearby New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.
Co-owner James Gonczi estimates that during the seven-day festival each spring, 30 to 35% of his clientele will be out-of-town visitors. Because of the coronavirus pandemic, the festival has not taken place for two years.
