Morgan's Note

As you can see, April is a very busy month for nonprofit events! From golf tournaments to dinners, from auctions to walks, this month has every kind of event you could want for a rainbow of local nonprofits. Why not pick one you haven't supported before and try out their event this month? You might discover your new passion while helping make our city a better place!

This month's issue is one of my favorites annually. Our April issue includes within these pages: Spring Fashion Accessories that can take your outfit from ho-hum to high-fashion without breaking the bank; 10 places to go on a perfect day in the French Quarter in our feature "Vieux Carré Views"; on-point fashions to inspire your latest closet additions in our spring fashion feature; and, my favorite labor of love each year, our fourth annual "Courts of Carnival" compendium. With those highlights and much, much more (Details on where to go to pick your own strawberries? Yes, please!) this issue is one to enjoy from cover to cover (if I do say so myself)!

Whether you're a vinophile or a fledgeling taster, the Hermann-Grima + Gallier Historic Houses' annual "Amazing Grapes Wine Auction" is a fantastic event. Our cover models promise a festive event featuring not only fabulous food and wine, but auctions featuring rare and hard-to-find wines, luxurious vacations and amazing art – all at the historic and beautiful Hermann-Grima House.

Call 274-0746 or visit HGGHH.org/support/wine-auciton to learn more.

Enjoy our beautiful (though often changing) spring weather!
