This blog and http://1718neworleans.com/ are here to provide Tricentennial forums for our community.
Beyond this Blog, I need feedback from the New Orleans community, so . . .
What is the creole myth? It could be that enigmatic inquiry-why is New Orleans such a tourist draw? What is the character of New Orleans?
The Food, er, the Cuisine.
The Big Easy.
Laissez le bon temps roullez.
?Bad? Politics arising from such an attitude.
Bourbon Street = alcohol, sex,
The City that Care Forgot
A freedom, perhaps found nowhere else.
The Garden District.
Je ne sais quo
So my job is to look back on the facts, the legends, the myth. And find out where it comes from. Where do I start?
I need to open it up and talk to people-here on the North Shore. To see what’s it all about. These issues need to be discussed in connection with the on-going 1718 Project. I would like to meet with any interested parties to discuss these issues. I propose meeting at St. John’s Coffeehouse (downtown Covington) on an appointed date and time to engage input into this fundamental issue. Any takers?
