Morgan's Note

Now that we've survived Carnival and are in the throws of dealing with the loss of whatever we decided to give up for Lent (and probably weighing the merits of a Friday steak versus the very low market price of early season crawfish), what's next?

Well, what's next is a whole bunch of fantastic fundraisers, music festivals and those beautiful spring days that make living in New Orleans a true pleasure.

So while you're enjoying sitting on your favorite patio pondering what your next project should be, look to What's Hot: Home Décor and our "Small Spaces" feature for the new trends, tips and tricks from local experts and shops that will inspire you to a spring cleaning, and possibly even a room renewal, of your own.

I live a block off Magazine Street and have been amazed by its growth! Every week it seems a new business or restaurant is opening, or a beloved stalwart is moving to a new space. Look to our "Shop Snapshots" feature for 12 stories that showcase why this thoroughfare continues to shine.

Our March issue is always one of my favorites for a very special reason: Debutante Snapshots! This year we bring you a rundown of four events – including that of this year's Queen of Carnival!

The Debutante Snapshots are only a prelude to our next issue, which contains our much heralded "Courts of Carnival" section! A labor of love by our staff and those who are closest to the 15 groups we profile, it helps make the April issue one of our most popular each year. Make sure to call Sara Kelemencky at 830-7231 to get your subscription started today!

Put away your purple, green and gold, and pull out your sun hats – festival season is here!
