I will be moving to New Orleans in July and am not familiar with the city’s shopping. Currently, my favorite store is Anthropologie, but there is not one in New Orleans. What stores have comparable fashions in New Orleans? Some of my favorite lines from Anthropologie include Language, RicRac, Left of Center, and Tabitha. These lines tend to have a natural feel (almost modern hippy) with many flowy tops. Thank you for your help!- Meaghan, Austin, Tx

I asked the Innkeeper and he said its a “State” secret, they put in a lot of time and sleep researching mattresses. The ones used at the Inn have 880 heavy coils and a plush top, so you get support and comfort. All the beds have the same quality and they don’t charge a premium […]

Second Weekend of Jazz Fest 2007 a bit Soggy, but still all good.

5 May 2007

It was bound to happen, always does each year. At least one day of the two weekend festival is honored with some showers. And in true New Orleans fashion, it was not just a little rain, but buckets of the stuff. Still, locals and die-hard Jazzfest fans took it in stride, sticking it out during […]
