Good Morning Everybody!
Another beautiful Monday and I hope everyone had a fantastic Easter weekend!! If you're home watching the kiddies, or are lucky enough to have Easter Monday off....Here are a few things you might want to do today.
For those of you who with the day off lookin' for a unique New Orleans experience....Check out Vella Vetro Art Glass at 3000 Royal St on the 2nd Floor. You can come by anytime Monday thru Friday 9 - 3 pm for free glass blowing demonstrations.
If you're going to hang out at City Park to feed the ducks, geese and squirrels (maybe even a raccoon)....be sure to check out the fancy new dog park - NOLA City Bark....and if you have a pup of your own....you can register them for a small fee...also, doggie must be up to date with shots.
Don't forget about Audubon Park...they have just as many ducks and crazy geese out there too who are lookin' for some bunny bread to munch on....(don't think I've ever seen a raccoon though)...And you can always head on over to the Fly (the park behind the zoo) and watch the ships pass by.
Well if you had enough relaxing in the park on this gorgeous day - here are some fun music events for tonight!!
