new orleans NOLAbound project

NOLA Itinerary #1


Upon arrival at our hotel, The Modern, we will have an entrance interview. After mine, I plan to drop everything in my room, put on my walking shoes and start hoofing it around the neighborhood.

Our first event is not til 4:00 o’clock – a Meet+Greet, an orientation in the hotel’s bar, The Bellocq (now remember, this bar is named after the photographer who secretly photographed madams of New Orleans’ famed red light district). Hope I don’t get in trouble at this first event.

We move on to Wednesday in the Square, Lafayette Square, that is. There we’ll catch a concert, stroll through the Artist Village and eat, eat, eat. Cajun or Crepes? Cajun or Crepes?

Later we’ll attend the Hornets-Lakers game and will have another dinner in the New Orleans Arena.

To Day Two

      Oh, this trip’s going to be a blast. Have you read about the green production studio?

    Just so you know… you always inspire me. Since the minute I met you. As a mother. As a woman. As an educator.

    So so impressed. Eat and drink well. So so so sad I’m missing you in the ATL.
