It’s Here! No, not Mardi Gras, that happens every year. The SUPER BOWL! OK, I know Mardi Gras is a big deal but nothing like our beloved Saints going to the big game.


Our Saints are so much more than just a football team to us here. They represent the come-back spirit of the city we all love so much. For those of you that have been here, you know New Orleans is much more then a place to live. It is a celebration of life. Boy are we celebrating now!

So get in a car or on a plane and come be a part of it. Oh yes, we will be having a blast at Mardi Gras too!

Summer in New Orleans

New Orleans is HOT all day in the summer, but it cools off at night. The Big Easy  is chock-full of events in Steamy July.
July 1-4 : Seafood Festival
July 3-4 : Essence Music Festival
July 4 : Go 4th on the River
July 10 : Running of the Bulls

There are great deals in the city during the summer months. Here at the 1896 O’Malley house we drop our rates to $135.00 per night until October 1.

Fun things to do during the summer are taking a swamp tour, visiting the plantations and taking a river boat tour.

Put on your RED DRESS!

August 7th, 2010 is White Linen Night. A really fun event which takes place on Julia Street. So don your white linen outfit and saunter along the street to peruse the art galleries, feast on great food and of course have a cocktail or three.

Being this is New Orleans, for every yin there is a yang, and in this case, it’s the Dirty Linen Night on August 14. Another Saturday night event, this time in the French Quarter on Royal Street.

After those events, get ready for the Red Dress Run. Also taking place on August 14th, you’ll find thousands of men and women in their RED dresses, as well as bunch of drinking going on.

Come join all the festivity here in New Orleans this August. Make sure you bring your White Linen or your Red Dress!
