> I just added to my website a few more "Big Easy" cites. New Orleans (which had a "Big Easy" club in the early 1900s) was definitely called "The Big Easy" by 1969. This is a year before "The Big Easy" novel (1970), later made into a movie with Ellen Barkin and Dennis Quaid. It is also slightly before the New York Convention and Visitors Bureau's "Big Apple" campaign.
