A Beignet, A Praline, and White Linen...yes please!

Return trip to N.O. this Saturday, 8/3, staying at the fabulous Windsor Court again. Arrive just in time to attend the 'Whitney White Linen Night' block party on Julia Street.

Also, lets not forget Satchmo SummerFest (tribute to Louis "Satchmo" Armstrong on the centennial of his birth)

I love the Windsor Court!!!! Ask for an upgrade--you never know. We've gotten upgraded to the club floor with river views several times.

Tiny...it took me 2 years to post my first review. Hope it doesn't take my that long to post this one...LOL

I will try to do a "LIVE FROM"; otherwise I promise a report upon my return WITH photos.

Unless you get a break with the weather, be prepared for some major heat at WLN. Went once, never again. No hot, crowded, sweaty galleries for me. If you go, have plenty of cold beverage near. And no, it's no cooler in white linen, just more wrinkly.

Highway,

Was in N.O. back in July 2011 and yes it was hot--but hot and humid doesn't bother me. Go figure?

It's the cold/snow/winter that I hate with a passion...brrr

I'd rather have 102 degrees than 22 degrees!

Do any of the galleries have complimentary wine and cheese like they do on dirty linen night?

Back from my N.O. trip--had a fantastic time!!!

Unfortunately, I will not have time to post a trip report until late next week; as I leave this Sunday (8/11) for Quebec City trip with son.

I want to return to N.O. soooo bad!!...sighh
