Streetcar Guide authors Keith and Barbara Nicholson, drawing from experience as New Orleans restaurant and bar workers, furnish a printed foray into historical St. Charles Avenue. The book's 176 pages are scribbled with descriptions of 111 avenue restaurants and bars and highlight 58 worthy stops, with the authors' personal experiences and commentary sprinkled, like all-knowing oregano, between historical facts. Readers can peruse entries categorized by favored local hangouts, gourmet eateries, prime live music venues, and best places to meet taxidermists. Then, plan stops along the line's 13 miles of scenic ancient oak trees and antebellum mansions, creating connect-the-dots portraits of passing strangers using each entry's accompanying stop number and cross street.

Running since circa 1835 with only one interruption, the St. Charles Avenue line's vintage cars amble along the same route as many Carnival Krewes and Mardi Gras and oxygen revelers. All travelers ordering online receive an added NORTA rail map and schedule to accompany their guidebooks.
