Bents in New Orleans?

Hi guys-
I've been off the forum and off my bike for some time. I'm going to be moving to New Orleans soon, and will once again be using my BikeE as my one and only ride. (no car) I was wondering if anyone on here had any tips or advise about bents in New Orleans. I know it's flatland, and that's about all I know. Any recumbent bike shops? Any groups?
I don't really know anyone down there. It's a giant leap for me.

Thanks

No idea about bents down there. But, www.wallbike.com is located there and it is a pretty cool bike shop.

I am pretty sure the owner of Wallbike rides a bent.
