the big easy: NOLA day 1.

i am so excited to be back in new orleans – i absolutely love this city for its myriad of eccentricities and undeniably charming character. we are lucky to be staying at the b&w courtyards – a fabulous b&b in the faubourg marigny district, just a few blocks from the heart of the french quarter.

we had the perfect new orleans day: a phenomenal welcome at our b&b by rob, one of the owners, followed by a great lunch of gumbo and shrimp po’boys at mena’s cafe, a stroll through the french quarter and a peek at bourbon street, afternoon coffee + beingnets at the famed cafe du monde, people watching in jackson square, shopping along royal street, a drink at molly’s at the market, and a spectacular dinner at bacco.

proceeds from this local brew have generated over $500,000 in relief for hurricane victims.
