New Orleans

New Orleans

New Orleans is all real and all fun. The epitome of leisure and indulgence, with a culture so strong, it envelopes you.

Food, architecture, music, accents. I know it has a tumultuous history, and isn’t known for progressivity like Seattle or Boston, but it’s a fabulous place to absorb something very unique.

Drinking is a prerequisite for socializing in the Crescent City.

“One of my favorite cities: gritty, distinctive, and decadent.”
