So glad it's Friday........really glad :) Another fun spring weekend in New Orleans and there are lots of things to do - so let's get this party started!!
St. Joseph's Altars
For starters - click on the ALTAR link and don't forget to check out the Times-Picayune classifieds (today and tomorrow) for more altars at local residences - I think those are always the best!!
Friday Evenings at Swirl
This is always a fun way to start off the weekend. Check out Swirl located on Ponce de Leon right off Esplanade and enjoy a FREE wine tasting at 6:00 pm. Once you've tasted one of their excellent choices you'll be sure to be buy a bottle!
You say - you still don't know what to do??? There's even more fun!!
