What a Festival!

Thanks so much to everyone who showed up to make this year's New Orleans Po-Boy Preservation Festival our best one yet! I'm still cleaning up shreaded lettuce and there are napkins glued to my outside wall but I couldn't be more pleased. The merchants and residents of Oak Street fought so hard to keep this Festival on Oak where it was created and nurtured. There are clearly still issues with crowds and lines, especially the bottleneck created on the 3rd block due to the huge demand for Jacques-Imo's po-boys. But again, to each and every one of you who came to see all that Oak Street had to offer, THANK YOU!

Busy weekend for the bookstore

Happy to be having our first table event at this year's Healing Arts Festival this Saturday, November 13th, from 12-8 at Michauls Restaurant at 840 St. Charles Avenue. From the website:

At The Healing Arts Festival the public will not only have the chance to talk to opinion leaders, philosophers, therapists, artists, product suppliers in health, beauty, and fitness, but also to attend a wide range of fascinating and inspiring workshops and demonstrations taking place throughout the events on healing on all aspects, Art, environmental issues, philosophy and spirituality for adults and children. Our aim is to inspire the city, creating a community dedicated to sustainable, joyful,sharing, caring and creative living.

Then we roll right into our beloved New Orleans Po-boy Preservation Festival starting at 11 on Sunday, November 14th. Check out the food and drink map to see that this year's organizers finally figured out that Oak Street would be much easier to navigate if the food lines were on the side streets. People, this is THE place to be on Sunday. See ya there and don't drop too much shredded lettuce on my floor!
