OUT TO LUNCH finds economist and Tulane finance professor Peter Ricchiuti conducting business New Orleans style: over lunch at Commander's Palace restaurant. Each week Peter invites guests from the New Orleans business renaissance to join him. The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, and Inc magazine have all named New Orleans the best city in the USA to be an entrepreneur. Out to Lunch is the cafeteria of the new New Orleans entrepreneurial movement. You can also hear the show on WWNO 89.9FM.

If you’re on Facebook, you see photos of yourself pop up from two, three, or ten years ago. Even though they’re photos that you posted, you still get a surprise to see what you looked like and what you were doing just a few years ago.
If we took snapshots of our work environment we might feel the same way. The way we work is constantly evolving.
Peter's guests on this edition of Out to Lunch represent two snapshots of where we are as a workforce.
Mike Perry is taking the New Orleans way of life and folding it into a way to work with an enterprise that’s part business incubator and part Mardi Gras Krewe, called The Mystic Krewe of the Silver Ball.
Erin Wilson is Operations Manager of a co-working space called The Warehouse that’s helping re-define what it means to go to work.
Peter, Erin and Mike are taking a unique look at the way we live and work on today’s Out to Lunch.
