Good Morning Everybody - Yesterday was pretty rough, but there's lots of good things going on around town to cheer you up!
Tonight is the Ceremonial Lighting of The Roosevelt's Waldorf Wonderland Lobby from 5:45 pm until 7:00 pm! To kick off the holiday season, The Roosevelt New Orleans will flip the switch to light the Waldorf Wonderland Lobby.
