Gambit Weekly, the local New Orleans alternative weekly paper, has a blurb about Marisol’s restaurant (437 Esplanade Ave. Tel. – 943-1912) and notes that they offer free wireless Internet access. They also feature all-you-can-eat antipasto lunches from Tuesday through Thursday. Free validated parking is available next door.
I’m starting to hear of more and more places with free Wi-Fi. I personally know of six so far, and it’s funny that only one of those is a coffeeshop.

Here’s my list of the places that have it so far, if you are interested.
