You know him, you love him!! Come meet one of our most beloved Saints ever, Hollywood Joe Horn at the Rouses on Tchoupitoulas this afternoon from 3:00 to 6:00 pm! I hear he has some delicious bbq sauce and maybe he'll even sign a bottle for you!
Tonight is the Ceremonial Lighting of The Roosevelt's Waldorf Wonderland Lobby from 5:30 pm until 7:30 pm! To kick off the holiday season, The Roosevelt New Orleans will flip the switch to light the Waldorf Wonderland Lobby with the help of actor and New Orleans native Bryan Batt. The hotel's grand lobby will be transformed into a canopy of white birch branches and tens of thousands of twinkling lights. Tonight's event will feature live entertainment, a visit from Santa, complimentary champagne and hors d'ouevres by The Roosvelt's Executive Chef Stefan Kauth and Cody Curl, sous chef of the Sazerac Restaurant also will be served. And don't forget the one-of-a-kind gingerbread village, created by Deborah Heyd, pastry chef at The Roosevelt, will be on display in Teddy's Café - it's going to be a magical Christmas filled evening!
