RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross
When wrestling fans meet famed announcer Jim Ross, they often pull the most illegal move in the sport: they start crying. There's just something about "(Good Ol') J.R." that inspires awe. Perhaps it's that Oklahoma drawl, that no-nonsense attitude, and the fact that he's one of the only announcers in the business who can step into the ring and deliver a "Country Whippin'." As the main voice of most of WWF's pay-per-view series and the host of WWF Raw, Ross has been a fixture of the WWE for decades, and remains a storied figure for generations of wrestling fans.
It's a safe bet that Ross has some yarns to spin from his years in the wrestling industry—and he does just that in his one-man show RINGSIDE: An Evening with Jim Ross. He shares his life story in a series of light-hearted anecdotes, from his upbringing and early career to pile-driving inside tales of wrestling and the mania it entails. A Q&A session allows fans to pose their most pressing inquiries, such as "What's the secret ingredient in your barbecue sauce?" and "Does anybody go to Vince McMahon's parties?"
House of Blues New Orleans
At home in the French Quarter, the House of Blues New Orleans keeps its heritage ever near with a metal box of mud from the Mississippi Delta hidden beneath its stage. Around this, more than 290 pieces of folk art—one of the largest collections in the country—decorate the walls and cover up the evidence of indoor shot-put practice. Also bringing its Southern charm and homestyle feel are hardwood floors, no less than three bars, and two levels for concert viewing.
