It’s time to plan a couple of fun (back to back) weekend trips!
Who’s coming with?!?
What: The New Orleans Jazz and Heritage festival.
When: Fri April 24- Sun April 26
Why: I can talk for hours about the Big E-Z, The Crescent City! We’ll start with great food, cocktails and music and go from there.
Where: I have reservations at the Renaissance Pere Marquette Hotel
Who: Everyone who’s Anyone!
What: Loose itinerary:
- Friday - Drinking in the French Quarter (The hurricane was invented here)
Followed the next weekend by:
What: The Kentucky Derby
When: Race is Sat May 3. (Probably leaving Friday and returning Saturday)
Why: I just bought a new outfit (anyone know how to tie a bow tie?), and I’ve never been. Besides who doesn’t love all the ladies in large floppy hats.
Where: I have reservations at the Fairfield Inn Louisville South
What: I’ve never been to Louisville (or a horse race for that matter) but it sounds fun, right? Some of my friends who are going have been to town many times and assure me it’s loads of fun.
