Good morning everybody and happy Tuesday!!
You can get your day started off right with a trip to the Farmer's Market!!! Visit the Crescent City's Farmer's Market at University Square (200 Broadway) from 9:00 to 1:00 pm and Greg and Mary Sonnier of The Uptowner is serving up lunch under the Green Plate Special Tent. This week they'll have dishes like spiced black bean soup, gumbo z'herbes, fajita chicken salad, smoked pulled pork sandwiches and sweets....yummy!!
Celebrate Navy Week with a very special Cocktail Party - tonight from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at The Westin New Orleans Canal Place Hotel (11th floor-100 Iberville Street). Ships from all over the world will be arriving on the 17th and docking along the East Bank of the Mississippi River. The festivities will culminate with a spectacular fireworks display over the river around 8:30pm. It's an evening of live jazz, specialty cocktails available for $8 each as well as full bar options, complimentary hors doeuvres and a phenomenal view of nautical ships and glistening fireworks!
