Shop 'til You Drop Along the French Market District Colonnade

July 27, 2018
My best friend, Christine, is proud to admit that she is a shopaholic. She knows all the best spots to shop for any occasion. She knows how to pace herself by tying in music and craft events for diversion, and she wines and dines along the way to easily fill an entire day with everything she enjoys. She’s a pro shopper but she was kind enough to allow a novice like me to tag along.

A Celebration Like No Other!

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.
