Follow Your Nose in New Orleans.

It is nice to meet you, stranger.  Have you ever eaten too much cake and ice cream?  Living in New Orleans is living at the point just before enough becomes too much.  I love where I live.  You will, too.  There is no place else like New Orleans.  I know.  I live here.  I have lived in other places and I have visited other places.  Every place is itself but there is no place else like New Orleans.  New Orleans brings out the best in people.  I see it happen every day.  You should follow your nose in New Orleans.

Your humble narrator.

When we first opened La Belle Esplanade, people told us it was too far from the French Quarter.  It is a one mile picturesque stroll from our front door to the quieter end of Bourbon Street.  When was the last time you stayed in a place like this?

Your home in New Orleans.


Follow your nose in New Orleans and grow where you are planted.  Every day is an adventure.  I always tell people to not make too many plans when this visit this wonderful city we call home.  Everything takes care of itself in New Orleans.  Everything always works out for the best in New Orleans.  I know.  I see it happen every day.

Every day is a New Orleans miracle.  It only gets better and better.  There are angels in the details.  Follow your nose in New Orleans.  It always knows the flavor of fruit wherever it goes.  Chase a wish.  Catch a dream.  Good memories are made on our street every day.  Part of my job is to help people make them.

I had a photo shoot today.  That is where today’s illustrations came from.  It’s an endorsement deal.  Here’s a shout-out to Soleil!  Thanks for the piece of Bazooka!  The comic sure was funny.

Note the fortune.


When you are ready to visit New Orleans like you mean it, I would like to suggest La Belle Esplanade.  When was the last time you slept in a bed like this?.  Vive la France!

Frau Schmitt and I are looking forward to meeting you.  Frau Schmitt is both a singer and a dancer.  She is a real pretty bird.  That’s why I asked her to marry me.  I always say that Frau Schmitt is the better half of this operation.
