A Celebration Like No Other!

May 07, 2018
There is no place quite like New Orleans! And this year our historic American port city celebrates its Tricentennial. Take a walking tour through the Vieux Carre and stop at the 400 block of Decatur to view the statue of Jean-Baptiste Le Moyne, Sieur de Bienville, a French-Canadian explorer and colonizer who founded New Orleans. As you stroll through the French Quarter’s lively city streets, notice the architecture derived from France and Spain, giving you the feeling like you are transporting in time.

All About the Party!

February 01, 2018
Here in the Big Easy, one thing is for sure. We know how to “pass a good time,” let the good times roll, and we know how to throw a good party that people from far and wide come to attend. Mardi Gras and the French Quarter Festival, the largest free music festival in the South, are two shining examples of hospitality in our fair city where “hostess with the mostest” has a whole new ring.

Carl Mack... Mardi Gras Museum & Chris Owens, Queen of Bourbon Street

February 01, 2018
In a French Quarter version of a “rags to riches” story, Carl Mack, a Rochester, New York native first appeared in 1984 in his trademark red and white striped suit and straw hat playing his wheeled xylophone for tips in Jackson Square. Meanwhile, he was astutely observing the local culture thinking of ways he could carve out his niche in it. He expanded his repertoire of entertainment skills to juggling, face painting, balloon twisting, pantomiming, and basic magic tricks.

Reputation is Everything

November 06, 2017
Growing up afraid of my shadow was beneficial in many ways. One way was that I never got to know the wrath of the nuns in my Catholic grade school; my fear for them came built in. That wasn’t as true for many of my classmates who, at one point in time, met the short end of a ruler, a paddle, a knuckle, or, the cold glare from the Habit.
