New Orleans:

New Orleans
City in Louisiana
New Orleans is a Louisiana city on the Mississippi River, near the Gulf of Mexico. Nicknamed the “Big Easy,” it’s known for its round-the-clock nightlife, vibrant live-music scene and spicy, singular cuisine reflecting its history as a melting pot of French, African and American cultures. Embodying its festive spirit is Mardi Gras, the late-winter carnival famed for raucous costumed parades and public partying.

 Kuumba Directory:

The Kuumba directory for New Orleans is a growing collection of links to individuals, businesses and groups working to make our city even more wonderful than she already is.

‘Kuumba’ means ‘Creativity’, and encourages us to always do as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our community more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it.

Social Media:

I love social media! Sharing is Caring is a motto that resonates. Join me on Facebook, read my blog (if you read it, I’ll post more!! LOL), check out my upcoming event calendar to see what I can recommend as Things To Do and whatever else I get it in my mind to share with you from this space.
