One reason for our recent move to New Orleans is because New Orleans has the feel of an old European city... right here in America! The architecture, the food, the "old school" ways... all so utterly charming and, in a way, foreign. Living and working here - you truly feel at times that you are living in another country... in a good way! There is nothing like it, that's for sure. And we are completely hooked!
In keeping with the European vibes, there are two uniquely European-ish events in New Orleans this weekend, one of which will be sporting bags by Uptown Redesigns! Check them out:
1) The first is the "San Fermin in Nueva Orleans" - which is the New Orleans version of Pamplona, Spain's Running of the Bulls. Starts at 8am in the French Quarter. This should be interesting!
2) The next taste of Europe this weekend will be French, and is where we will be setting up shop with our upcycled bags! It's the 5th annual Bastille Day Festival in Faubourg St. John. It will be from 5-9pm on Saturday evening (maybe it will cool down by then?) and will feature live music, plenty of awesome food and drinks, and lots of artsy things - all with a French theme. Looking forward this one - should be fun! Check out the video from last year's event.
So - if you are craving a little more Europe in your American lives, come to town and check out these "Only in New Orleans" events!
