good day lagalou!
I've come up with 2 more good reasons to live here in lagalounola.
1. I just finished kicking off the 4th year of Festivus, the holiday market for the rest of us, and we had amazing crowds who spent their Sunday afternoon outside on a cold (for New Orleans) Saints football day. They spent, they read about fair trade, they ate crepes along with bloody marys with pickled mirliton and they socialized. They didn't drive into the suburbs and enter the mall for a day of suspended reality to throw their hard-earned money at corporate chains that count success only when bettering last year's sales.
They took flattery from roller derby queens, they bought jewelry from Pam Becker and daughter Anna, while Anna's boyfriend Dave assisted. They tried on Tracy's hats, oohed over Renee's button collection, laughed at Heather's clever use of blue tarp, listened to Slewfoot and Cary B. play for them, met old friends and bought, bought, bought local goods.
They came and did it. What a fun and useful day.
