There is no doubt about it, New Orleans knows how to throw a party! And in a city with its own Irish Channel & plenty of authentic Irish pubs & Irish descendants, it certainly has to be one of the best places to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. New Orleans hosts about half a dozen parades the weekend of St.Patrick’s Day. And since I missed Mardi Gras this year, I was very excited to be in town to catch the Uptown Irish Channel Parade, which ran on Saturday March 16th. The f
It’s Carnival Time! I’m a little sad to not be in New Orleans again this year for Mardi Gras, but I’m still keeping the festive spirit going with lots of gumbo, hurricanes, and king cake. This is only the 2nd time I have ever missed carnival season in New Orleans. It truly is a huge cultural tradition and family celebration for the locals. And if I’m not in NOLA, I have to at least bring the spirit and soul of my hometown with me wherever I am! If you missed out on my Mardi

It’s a great chance for me to meet the family and wedding party before the wedding day, figure out who everyone is and try to learn everyone’s names.
