Attend a virtual mini or schedule your own!
Virtual Visit to New Orleans, October 17, 2020, 8 pm Eastern!
French Quarter courtyards, Garden District mansions, above-ground tombs, Mardi Gras beads, second lines, Dixieland jazz, live oak trees, Spanish moss, the Hurricane, St. Louis Cathedral, Mardi Gras Indians, Zulu coconuts, Voodoo . . .
We were supposed to be in NOLA together the weekend of October 17 and 18, soaking up the music, architecture, and Carnival traditions that make her special. Sigh . . .
Instead, let’s get together virtually on Zoom starting at 8 pm EDT! (See below for more info.) And in keeping with the New Orleans theme, feel free to bring along a dish or cocktail that represents NOLA’s culinary distinctiveness.
Google (what would we do without it?!) the Internet for a recipe that appeals to you; keywords could include "NOLA," "Louisiana," "Creole," or "Cajun."
My new favorite New Orleans cookbook is Creole Feast: Fifteen Master Chefs of New Orleans Reveal Their Secrets (https://www.amazon.com/
For drinks, here are links to NOLA classics, some of which can be made as mocktails by omitting the alcohol: Absinthe Frappe, Creole Bloody Mary, Daiquiri, Hurricane, Pimm's Cup, Ramos Gin Fizz, and Sazerac.
Whether you cook/concoct something or just feel like hanging out, I look forward to seeing you on October 17th!
The virtual mini will begin at 8 pm Eastern, 7 pm Central, 6 pm, Mountain, and 5 pm Pacific. Here's the Zoom link: https://zoom.us/j/5269841235?
