Holiday Market Season down by de BAYOU
We've just got a couple of weeks to go with the busy holiday season of wonderful markets and festivals in New Orleans. This week we have an event at the W Hotel, which is sold out(I hear it may be because of some fabulous eco friendly movie stars who may be in town but that is just gossip). It's called tales of the Toddy- all about drinking hot toddies from fabulous New Orleans restaurants and shopping with eco friendly vendors. That is this Thursday, December 10 on Poydras.
Next we are doing both the Freret-stivus celebration and the Treme Creole Gumbo Festival featuring Kermit Ruffins and Gumbo purveyors. The Freret event is on Saturday and the Gumbo Fiesta is on Saturday and Sunday. Trying to get lots of stuff made for both.
And that is just this week. Next week I have more events, and, a Crazy Quilt workshop at the library, and, I'm in meetings this week about costume design for an indie film.Cross your fingers, it would be a wonderful nightcap on this most abundant year!
peace & beignets!
