Happy Happy


We hope you’ve dried out from Mardi Gras and are ready to mix and mingle at the upcoming Happy Hour:  Friday, February 26, from 6 pm-until you’ve told all of your crazy Carnival tales.  This week we head Uptown (baby!) to the Balcony Bar on Magazine.  Directions and other details can be found at: http://www.neworleansonline.com/directory/location.php?locationID=25

Also, business cards should be in and will be available to pick up at Happy Hour—if happy hour wasn’t enough incentive. 

Hope to see you there!


Party of the Greenway

Fellow Crescent City Shaper, Ethan Ellestad (the Urban Conservancy Community Outreach Coordinator) , would like to invite us all to “Party of the Greenway.”  The celebration will be held at the Sojourner Truth Community Center on February 25th from 5:30 to 7:30 pm.   Food will be provided for free from Dooky Chase, the Treme Brass Band will provide the music, and there will be a raffle for a children’s bike.  Also, the first 20 kids who arrive with a parent get a free bike helmet.   Bring a friend or several.  See you there!

Any questions or comments email Ethan: lafittegreenway@gmail.com

Golden Dragon Buffet (boo-fay)

Certainly a unique if not one-of-a-kind event:

If you are free on Tuesday, February 9 from 11:30-12:30, please feel free to join MURP 6180 at Slidell’s finest and fullest buffet at the Golden Dragon.  Students will be enjoying lunch at this find Slidell establishment before moving on to survey the subject of their final project:  a large tract of land bordered by 1-10, Old Spanish Trail Road, and Fremeaux Road. 

If interest, please email Alexis:  aleventh@uno.edu

All are welcome…no worries for a shortage of Golden Dragon delicacies…
